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.

Light Ranch Dressing

This all-American staple gives a creamy, herbaceous kick to any veggie that crosses its path.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Litehouse Lite Ranch. 
A creamy, thick buttermilk consistency balanced by kicky vinegar, peppery tang, and bright notes of onion and herbs.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Hidden Valley Light Ranch.
An excellent version of the full-fat counterpart. This one gives you a fraction of the fat, but the tangy ranch flavor is full-on.
