Trader Joe's Veggie Sausage Patties

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 Veggie Sausage Patties fell into the category of Top 5 Vegetarian Products. Here's their take on the product:

Trader Joe's Veggie Sausage Patties (9/10 points)

"I'm a meatatarian by nature and nurture, and sausage is by far one of my favorites. These veggie patties come extremely close to matching the real thing. If meat grew on a tree this is how it would taste." Read more about this product on What's Good At Trader Joe's?
