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.

Feta Cheese

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Fage. 
A bright, lemony flavor without too much salt (it had the lowest sodium content of the fetas we tasted: 180mg in 2 tablespoons). Its texture is moist and creamy, yet firm and crumbly.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Athenos Chunk.
Sophisticated, aged flavor. Slightly drier, so it would work best crumbled over salads or pasta.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Kolios.
The creamiest of the bunch, perfect for melting in hot pasta. Nice tangy flavor that ends with a zesty bang.
