Taste Test: Our Guide to the Best Products at the Supermarket

There are tens of thousands of products on supermarket shelves; let us help you pick the best—in both taste and nutrition. After booting out foods that don't fit our nutrition standards, products are served to a Cooking Light staff tasting panel for blind taste tests. Here are the winning products in a variety of categories.

Bean Burritos

Because sometimes, darn it, you just have to have a bean burrito. Here are some options that don't break the sodium or sat fat bank.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: CedarLane Low-Fat Beans, Rice, and Cheese. 
Combine just the right blend of zesty spices with perfectly cooked beans, then wrap it in a soft, chewy flour tortilla, and you get a frozen burrito that rivals any fast-food competitors (with about half the sodium).

TASTE TEST AWARD: Evol Veggie Fajita.
Brown rice and black beans render it hearty and filling, while sautéed peppers and a sweet corn salsa add tons of flavor without relying on sat fat–heavy cheese.
