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.

Acerola Is the Trendiest New Food at Trader Joe’s — But What Is It?

Cheese-less cheesecakes, matcha green tea ice cream, cheese cauliflower jalapeño dip: Is there anything Trader Joe’s can’t do? This month, the popular California-based grocer is brimming with exciting, unique, and delicious new products, from cheese-less cheesecakes and matcha green tea ice cream to cheesy cauliflower jalapeño dip. And while all have us sprinting to our nearby TJ’s, two new products feature an intriguing ingredient we’ve honestly never heard of before: acerola.

Dubbed an “untapped functional superfruit” by a 2018 study published in the Journal of Food Science and Technology, acerola is, as Trader Joe’s puts it, a cherry-like fruit that grows mostly in the warmer parts of South America and is rich in Vitamin C (just one of these acerola cherries contains more than 100 percent of our daily recommended value of vitamin C). Acerola, which also boasts vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin, is often used to help prevent colds or the flu and when combined with vitamin C, it can help boost immunity. So, considering our current climate, it makes perfect sense why this superfruit would resurface this year &mdash and at Trader Joe’s, no less.

Trader Joe launched two new vitamin C-rich products this summer: Unsweetened Organic Acerola Puree and Absolutely Acerola Juice Shots.

Available in the freezer section, TJ’s Acerola Puree Packets ($3.49) are sold in four-packs and are perfect for smoothies and juices. In fact, each of the 3.5-ounce packets “delivers a whopping 1,180 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin C!”

The Absolutely Acerola Juice Shot ($1.99), on the other hand, contains the juice of 12 acerola cherries and one bottle contains 1,010 percent of your daily recommended amount of vitamin C. “What&rsquos more, you can trust you&rsquore tasting the true, tart & fruity juice of the acerola since our supplier uses an HPP (High Pressure Process) to help maintain the safety of the juice and the quality of the flavor,” Trader Joe’s says.

You can shoot it straight, add it to smoothies (like the puree packets), or add it to mixed drinks for a shot of bright, tart flavor. Trader Joe’s recommends using it in their Chameleon Cooler cocktail, which calls for one juice shot and TJ’s Chia Seeds, Mango Nectar, Unsweetened Coconut Beverage, Freeze Dried Strawberries, and a lime wedge and fresh mint.
