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.

French Fries

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Walmart Great Value Regular Cut

A perfect marriage of crispy crust on the outside enveloping a wonderfully fluffy, floury baked potato texture inside. The salt is present but doesn't overwhelm the pure potato flavor.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Ore-Ida Golden Fries

Nice and crunchy, like fast-food fries (without the greasy fingers). The meaty, thicker cut packs plenty of potato into a light outer shell.
