Trader Joe's Pear Cinnamon Cider
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 Pear Cinnamon Cider fell into the category of Top 4 Tasty Juice Blends. Noted Russ, "Although the drinks in this category are almost exclusively made with natural fruit juices and are, therefore, good choices for the health-conscious, these are our top picks based solely on flavor, texture, and chuggability."
Pear Cinnamon Cider (9/10 points)
"Move over, apples! There's a new fruit dominating the world of cider. In my opinion, pears have never received their due recognition as nature's candy. This drink mixes pear juice and cinnamon with some other natural flavors, and it'll wow your taste buds whether you have it hot or cold." Read more about this product on What's Good At Trader Joe's?
