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.

Sparking Water, Lime

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Seagram's Seltzer in Key Lime

Medium lime-osity—it's a tad tart but not overly tangy. Lots of carbonation lends bountiful bubbles and fresher flavor. Cool and thirst-quenching.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Deer Park Sparkling Water in Lime Essence

Zesty and citrus-forward, this sparkling water is a great balance of tart, natural lime flavor with just the right amount of tongue-tickling effervescence.
