So I live in Finland, and I found this stuff that says "Kookosrasvaa", which roughly translated is "Coconut Fat."
It was in the butter aisle. It says that it is 100% Coconut, and I figured that it couldn't hurt to buy it, so I did. When I inspected it when I got home I was shocked to find that it has almost a plasticky taste, and is super hard.
I have yet to use it, and I wanted to run it through here first. There are no other ingredients than "coconut".
So how do I use it? Should I use it?

It sounds like refined coconut oil. The refined kind has no taste, but to me seems like chewing on polypropylene or beeswax. If it is super hard, you probably don't heat your home very high. This stuff is great for cooking, but not so much for eating right out of the package.
