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.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Sargento Off the Block Traditional Cut

Moist, fat shreds—as if you shredded it yourself. Milky-sweet with just the right amount of tang.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Horizon Organic

Ideal salt level and a slightly nutty taste. Melts nicely, in a way similar to Swiss cheese.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Kraft with a Touch of Philadelphia

Starts off mild but finishes with a sharpness. Maintains its creamy texture as it melts.
