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.

Shredded Wheat Cereal (Frosted)

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Malt-O-Meal Frosted Mini Spooners.
The least expensive of the bunch took our top honors with its old-fashioned traditional taste. The airy biscuits have a hearty sprinkling of sugar and a crisp, light texture.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Three Sisters Sweet Wheat.
A sweet crunch hits the taste buds, transitioning into a wheaty, earthy aftertaste. Great depth of flavor.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Target Market Pantry.
Its toasted whole-wheat notes are complemented—rather than obscured—by the sweet frosting. Tall, fluffy biscuits don't lose their crunchy mojo in milk.
