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: South Carolina

Blenheim Hot Ginger Ale ($24 for 24 [12-ounce] bottles)

Bottled since 1903 and available in regular, hot, and diet options. Our resident ginger ale expert liked the unique hit packed by the hot variety. It's hard to find a good ginger ale that's not too sweet, but this one has plenty of balance. It would take a classic cocktail, such as a Dark and Stormy, to a new place.
