GIVEAWAY: Fermented Cod Liver Oil

If you are a long time reader of this site, you know that I highly recommend fermented cod liver oil as a superfood. Superfoods are foods that naturally concentrate important vitamins and minerals that are otherwise hard to come by. In my general food philosophy, I almost always choose superfoods over supplements. That’s because these sacred foods have traditionally been prized and highly sought after as a means to build fertility and health.

As a superfood, fermented cod liver oil is rich in Vitamins A, D, and K. Since it is also a form of fish oil, fermented cod liver oil is also rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids. This Labor Day, I’m giving away a bottle of Green Pasture’s Blue Ice Emulsified Fermented Cod Liver Oil. The emulsified oil has one supreme advantage over the regular fermented oil: taste. These kid-tested and approved flavors beat the regular fermented cod liver oil in any face off.

My own family enjoys the Peppermint Emuslified Fermented Cod Liver Oil the best. I personally notice very little fishy aftertaste thanks to the peppermint oil. One friend of mine commented that she takes a shot of raw milk immediately after swallowing her dose of the Peppermint flavor. According to her, it leaves an aftertaste like peppermint ice cream.

  1. Erin Elizabeth via Facebook says

    I recently ordered the mint and ginger. IMO the ginger is awful. My son doesn’t like it either.

  2. says

    I don’t think I’d like ginger either, but some people love it. I’m definitely a fan of the peppermint, and have had a few people tell me they thought the peppermint was awful while the ginger was extraordinary! Go figure. Dave at Green Pastures has said that he’s thinking about putting together a sample pack so that people can test run the flavors. I think that’s a brilliant idea!

  3. Rachael says

    I’ve read so much about the benefits of fermented CLO, but am a bit reluctant to try it because of the potential flavor. I’d LOVELOVELOVE, though, to try Green Pasture’s FCLO capsules!

  4. Ann Utterback says

    Honestly, I have been wanting to try this for my kids. If I could pick any product, it would be the peppermint cod oil.

  5. HollymMead says

    The X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil is the product that I would most like to try. I have been taking the Oslo Orange cod liver oil for a while now, but the butter oil would be blazing a new trail!

  6. Steph says

    I just got our first bottle of this in the mail yesterday, orange flavored. I’d love to try the peppermint. Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. Jesse says

    have been buying FCLO from Green Pastures for a couple of years now…would also love to try their coconut ghee and butter oil

  8. Jesse says

    love you on fb and after you posted about the emuslified peppermint fclo…I immediately went to green pastures an ordered 2. My husband thanks you tremendously as he had a hard time getting the other oils down…but I was making him cause we’re trying to make a baby 😉

  9. Amanda says

    I would REALLY like to try the chocolate cream butter oil/cod liver oil blend. But, as an aside, the Licorice flavor FLCO is great!! If you like black licorice, that is :-)

  10. Jane says

    I would like to try the ginger but my son wants licorice, so we’ll compromise on peppermint. What is the difference between emulsified and not? Also want to get some butter oil.

  11. says

    I’m already on your email list and I like you on FB. The peppermint looks interesting but I think a sample pack that also included the other products would be a great idea. The coconut ghee looks interesting as well.

  12. Kimberly says

    I’d like to try ginger actually but peppermint would be good too to be sure I’d like it 😉

      I literally just recieved my order of the chocolate cream blend about 10 minutes ago. It is the most terrible tasting stuff I have ever had in my mouth. So now we have a whole jar of that, the FCLO in orange, and the combo capsules my little girl will not take. I hide the orange FCLO in a smootrhie every day so she will take it :)

  13. Joel says

    We got the plain FCLO to give our, at the time, 3 month old…I squirted it in her mouth and she immediately spit it out everywhere. She smelled like fish for days!

  14. Denise says

    I have the chocolate butter oil/cod liver oil combo and it does not taste that great, but is good for you, and has no aftertaste. Would love to try different flavor.

  15. Emily says

    Oh, I’d love to try one of the emulsified flavors, probably peppermint. I’ve used Green Pastures products in the past but never tried the emulsified ones. Hope I win! :)

  16. says

    I already like your FB page and I would love to try not only their cod liver oils but I’ve always want to try coconut Ghee. Sounds amazing!

  17. Katie M says

    I would like to try the FCLO Capsules…I just can’t bring myself to just take the oil, no matter what the flavor.

  18. Jennifer R. says

    I have a question… how do you get your kids to take it? Mine took regular cod liver oil (liquid) no problem — but we have the peppermint FCLO and they hate the taste (and I bought 3 bottles since it was on sale). Do you keep it in the refrigerator? If so, then it solidifies… help! thanks :)

  19. Teresa says

    I’m one of ur biggest fans…follow u every way possible :-) I really want the coconut ghee! And, need to try the cod oil…but, which one ? I just can’t imagine what any of them taste like, to pick one ! Thanks so much for all the inspiration you give me…u have made a huge great change in my eating !

  20. Julie says

    I have tried a few flavors but haven’t found a favorite yet. I would try I would like to try the Chocolate flavored Cod liver/butter oil next.

  21. Lisa says

    I liked you on FB, I have signed up for your newsletter and I would LOVE to try the peppermint emulsified FCLO. Thanks!

  22. Tammy R. says

    I’d like to try all the new emulsified flavors so the sample pack you mentioned on FB would be awesome. But if I have to pick just one to be entered, I’d pick peppermint. Thanks!

  23. Martha says

    I’m already an email subscriber. :-)

    I was prepared to hate the licorice flavor… and ended up loving it!

    The Green Pasture coconut oil is a favorite – it has a nice coconutty flavor to it.

  24. wendy w says

    love your blog, like ya on facebook. i’d like to try either cinnamon, licorice or unflavored. a sample pack would rock our world. thx!

  25. Jessica says

    I actually use the FCLO/butter oil in capsules daily. I’ve had fish oil make me burp fish-taste my whole life and this does nothing of the kind. I love it.

  26. Emily says

    I had bought the cinnamon tingle and BLEGH! I then got food poisoning (not from the cod liver oil) and that cinnamon/liver oil taste ruined me. I can’t even open the bottle without me wanting to vomit. I now take the fclo/butter oil capsules and would love to try the emulsified clo. I am a subscriber and I liked you on facebook, may it be my lucky day!

  27. amanda says

    oh oh, totally the coconut ghee! I’d be putting that on just about everything.

    signed up for your newsletter as well!

  28. AmandaC says

    I would love to try the cinnamon flavored cod liver oil, it sounds very unique and tasty. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

  29. Veronica says

    I would love to try the BLUE ICE™ Royal Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend – Cinnamon Tingle. I wonder why, (if the butter oil/fermented Cod liver oil is so good) people buy these separate?

  30. Maggie says

    I love the peppermint! I have tried the butter oil/ cod liver oil blend in chocolate and although it’s not my favorite flavor I love the product. I think i would want to get this again.

  31. Jennett says

    I would like the licorice flavored fermented cod live oil. This site has been on my reader board for a long time and I just signed up for the e-mail updates.

  32. Tara Mcginnis says

    I have tried Cinnamon tingle before but wuld love to try the ginger, mint or gel caps. I love the butter oil/FCLO blend. Thanks

  33. Marissa says

    I’ve already subrscibed to your wonderful website. I love getting info on what’s going on in the industry, great recipes that align with my diet, and exciting giveaways like this

  34. Karen Umbrello says

    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!
    Your site is totally inspiring!
    There are so many things on your site I’m trying/going to try.
    I’d love to try the butter oil/fermented cod liver oil blend.
    Thanks again!

  35. says

    I would love to win the peppermint flavored fermented cod liver oil! My three year old, who has food allergies, has terrible teeth and I’ve been told this can do wonders for him!

  36. Becky Allen says

    I looked at the Green Pasture’s website. I have tried the cinnamon tingle and the oslo orange. The cinnamon was great but it was to hot for my babies. The orange is gross. I want to try the plain next time I order. I squirt it down my throat so I don’t taste it anyway. I would like to get the peppermint for my babies.

  37. Marisha says

    Hello there! I browsed the Green Pastures website; had I the chance to try anything, I’d definitely choose any flavor of the fermented cod liver oil- emulsifed or no- and I wouldn’t mind giving the unique coconut ghee a go!


  38. Molly says

    I am a huge fan of yours so yes already subscribed.
    I take the capsules. I’m too much of a fish hater to try to swallow the oil but if I win it, I will try!!

  39. Tamara says

    I already like you on Facebook, and I would like to try the Butter/Fish oil combo. Thanks very much for the chance to win.

  40. says

    Well, I’d like to try the Skate oil just out of curiosity. But what I take is butter oil capsules and liquid FCLO (currently Arctic Mint, but I want to try the orange or cinnamon next).

  41. says

    Mainly I would like to try the fermented cod liver oil, maybe the peppermint flavored kind. I was impressed with the video of the toddler taking cod liver oil and asking for more!

  42. Brea says

    I am thinking the high-vitamin butter oil/fermented cod liver oil capsules would be best. I’m skeptical even of the flavored liquid! Taste is the thing that’s been holding me back from trying cod liver oil.

  43. jacquie says

    the product i would most like to try is the emulsified code liver oil – probably the peppermint. i’m also intrigued by the coconut oil/ghee combo – but i’m not sure as to it’s use …

  44. heather b says

    I take FCLO everyday. My favorite is
    BLUE ICE™ Royal Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend – Non-Flavored. I just dropped my bottle on the tile floor and smashed one side of it. I could use a new bottle now.

  45. Christine says

    Hello! I just found this company a few days ago myself, and was thinking about ordering the butter oil/FCLO capsules.
    I’ve just liked your Facebook page, and I’m already signed up for your e-mails, though I’m not sure I’ve seen any yet.

  46. ForTheLoveOfBUTTER says

    I would love to win some Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil! Out of the emulsified flavors, I would like to try the licorice one!

  47. Alex says

    I am afraid of the taste (not a fishy fan) so I think the orange capsules would be my first choice to try FCLO. Do you have any information about taking FCLO during pregnancy? Thanks!

  48. Rachel says

    I want to try the high vitamin butter oil.

    I have to say, I was very nervous about trying FCLO for the first time. VERY NERVOUS! But it was not nearly as bad as I anticipated. But the best thing to do (and I wish I’d read about this before trying it) is to mix it into another drink (a little bit) and then it’s much easier to swallow. And my kids love it too. I thought it would be difficult to get them to try it but it wasn’t.
    (Just wanted to encourage other people who might be nervous about it.)

  49. Deborah says

    I already subscribe and get updates on Facebook. I “liked” your post on Facebook about this. I would love to try the fermented cod liver oil!

  50. Laura says

    I’d probably go for the plain cod liver/butter oil. I have the cinnamon right now and my son doesn’t really like it.

  51. elizabeth k says

    I liked you on FB (not hard to do ;-)) I am currently and forever hooked on coconut oil! So good and good for us! Thanks you!

  52. amy says

    I would like to try the Ginger flavored Emulsified Cod Liver Oil. I love anything and everything ginger and have been afraid to actually try fish oil (normally just take the capsules) so thinking the ginger flavor might get me to actually try taking the oil!

  53. Alice Nicoll via Facebook says

    Have been trying to find Green Pasture’s Cod Liver Oil in Australia and it is $70 per bottle. ARGH! Why, with the dollar being what it is, is it so expensive here? Wish I lived in the US and had access to it, and had access to raw milk!

  54. Dan says

    I have been using the butter oil/fermented cod liver oil for two months now and I have to say I love it. My teeth no longer hurt and I expect my cavities to re-mineralize.
