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.

Gluten-Free Rice Chips

Every day the market seems more crowded with chips made from nontraditional ingredients, like lentils and other legumes. We rank brown-rice options high because of the whole grain's nutty crispness.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Lundberg Rice Chips

The company offers these superthick chips in nine flavors. The sea salt variety (with a manageable 110mg sodium per serving) complemented the toasty rice flavor of the chip. Crunchy, hearty—a true snack.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Riceworks Sea Salt

Pockets of rice crackle when you bite down, adding a welcome second layer of crunch, yet these chips are still light enough to maintain a delicate crispness.
