Trader Joe's Green Plant Beverage
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 Green Plant Beverage fell into the category of Top 4 Healthy Beverages. Noted Russ, "All four of us on the What's Good at Trader Joe's? team are health conscious... sort of. We like to try fresh, vitamin-rich beverages, but we'll rarely stick with a 'health drink' unless it tastes good, too." Here's their take on the product:
Green Plant Beverage (6/10 points)
"Although it looks like a bottle of algae, Russ and Sandy were brave enough to try the Green Plant Beverage. They were pleasantly surprised by its taste. And as one might guess, it's chock-full of good-for-you green plant nutrients and minerals." Read more about this product on What's Good At Trader Joe's?
