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.

Frozen Edamame

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Columbia River Organics

The texture remains just right: not too mushy or drained of taste. They have a lush, meaty quality that would work well in meatless main dishes to add some heft.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Seapoint Farms Organic

These beautifully plump soybeans have the perfect texture—crisp and chewy—they're fun to bite into! The flavor is clean, nutty, and faintly grassy.
