Trader Joe's Organic Tomatillo And Roasted Yellow Chile Salsa

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 Organic Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chile Salsa 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 Organic Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chile Salsa (8.5/10 points)

The only thing this salsa lacks is just a tad more heat. Other than that, it's impossible to argue with this smooth, smoky, full-flavored salsa offering. It's our favorite Trader Joe's salsa, and it's not all that close. Read more about this product on What's Good at Trader Joe's?
