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: Popcorn, Indiana All Natural Sea Salt

If you often return to foods you first encountered at an early age, this popcorn is right up your alley—it tastes like the movie theater popcorn we all grew up with. Fresh and buttery with a good salty edge.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt

Great on the go with whole-grain goodness in a slightly salty, buttery burst. Good crunch with a nice true-corn flavor.
