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.

Potato Pierogies

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Mrs. T's Potato & Onion

Hearty and flavorful (decidedly oniony but not overpowering), these are a fast, family-friendly option to keep on hand for busy weeknights. The dough stays nicely crisped while maintaining a pleasant chewiness.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Rising Moon Organics Potato & Onion

A thick, pillowy crust with a creamy center of zesty caramelized onions that lends anumami-like satisfaction, particularly for vegetarians. Their slightly smaller size and dumpling-like shape are alluring.
