Trader Joe’s Chicken Breast in Poblano Sauce
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 Chicken Breast in Poblano Sauce fell into the category of Biggest Disappointments. Noted Russ, "Don’t confuse these with our worst-rated items. It’s not like you really need us to tell you that the Name Tag Classic Lager isn’t any good. Instead, these are the products that failed the most to live up to our pretty reasonable expectations, with a suggestion of what to get instead." Here's their take on the product:
Trader Joe’s Chicken Breast in Poblano Sauce (2/10 points)
You say poblano, I say po-BLAND-o, and yeah, you’re better calling the whole thing off. Absolutely void of any redeeming qualities. Blecch. Much better option: Trader Jose’s Chicken in Red Mole. Read more about this product on What's Good at Trader Joe's?
