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.

Whole-Grain Frozen Waffles

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Van's 8 Whole Grains Multigrain.
Nice deep wells (ready to capture a pool of syrup) and a fluffy thickness that calls to mind a Belgian waffle. A hint of cinnamon adds interest.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value.
Crisp on the outside with a tenderly chewy middle. Not overly sweet, so they're the perfect accompaniment for maple syrup.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Nature's Path Flax Plus. The toasty taste and complex, hearty texture let you know these waffles are truly whole grain. Additional crunch from flaxseeds makes them an excellent—and extra nutritious—pairing for a smear of peanut butter.
