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.

Whole-Grain Blends

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Better Oats Organic Raw Pure & Simple

This whole-grain combo (oats, barley, quinoa, rye, and wheat) yields a wonderful textural mix. There's enough flavor that testers felt it only needed a small bit of honey or maple syrup.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Farm to Table Organic Ancient Grain Oatmeal

A good balance between grains and traditional oats, this blend—oats, kamut, rye, spelt, barley, and flax—serves as a base for your favorite stir-ins: sweet (dried fruit) or savory (almond butter).
