Trader Joe's Organic Mango Nectar

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 Mango Nectar fell into the category of Top 4 Beverages to Avoid. Noted Russ, "Not everything at TJ's impresses us. These four beverages elicited responses ranging from 'Nice try to 'What were they thinking?'" Their review follows:

Organic Mango Nectar (4/10 points)
Great texture, but the flavor leaves a little to be desired — and I really like mangos. If you're looking for a drink with some mango flavor, the Heart of Darkness Mango Passion Fruit Blend is a little more palatable." Read more about this product on What's Good At Trader Joe's?
