Trader Joe’s Arancini Bites
Nathan Rodgers, his wife Sonia, and their friend Russ Shelly and his wife Sandy set out almost two years ago to review the cult grocer's some 4,500 products for their site What's Good at Trader Joe's?, and so far they've covered more than 300 products. While the reviewers are fans of Trader Joe's, they take reviewing seriously — their first review was even negative. Here's their process:
• They rate products on a scale of one to 10, 10 being the best.
• For any post, two people rate the product.
• Reviewers give their overall impression and up to five points each.
For Russ, Sonia, Shelly, and Sandy, Trader Joe’s Arancini Bites fell into the category of Best of the Rest. Noted Russ, "We can’t fit everything in tidy little categories. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of all sorts of random goodies we’ve found. No, the turkey meatloaf muffins are nowhere close to being on here." Here's their take on the product:
Trader Joe’s Arancini Bites (8.5/10 points)
You know those breaded mozzarella sticks all the kiddies like? Imagine those, all grown up and dressed real nice, with a respectable haircut and a sense of responsibility. The arancini bites are exactly that, except even better. Read more about this product on What's Good at Trader Joe's?
