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.

Effie’s Homemade Corncakes

Best in Sweets: Massachusetts

Effie’s Homemade Corncakes ($36 for 6 bags). One of the finest biscuits in the world, we say: slightly sweet and seductively salty, with a masa-flour corn flavor and cornmeal crunch, and a hint of anise. A one-year-old product with timeless character. Effie’s also offers oatcakes and pecan nutcakes.
