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.

Best of the Rest: Alabama

The Pecans! Pecan Butter ($8 for 8 ounces)

As part of the YouthBuild program in the impoverished Black Belt region of Alabama, high school students produce brittle and butter. This is a staggeringly good, fairly loose paste of toasted nuts, honey, and cinnamon. Nice on a cracker or biscuit, but you won't be able to resist eating it straight from the spoon.
