Trader Joe's Omega Orange Carrot Juice
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’sOrganic Low-Fat Probiotic Smoothies 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:
Omega Orange Carrot Juice (7.5/10 points)
A pleasant surprise for Russ and Sandy. Sweet, citrusy, and delicious, this good-for-you beverage tastes less like its many healthy ingredients (including omega fish oils and tilapia gelatin) and more like a smooth, complex fruit-juice blend.
