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.

Taste Test: The Best Whole-Grain Thin Sandwich Bread

Thin is in: The best whole-grain slim sandwich breads

Nutrition notes: Sandwich thins shave off about half the calories of regular loaf bread. Limit choices to those with 350mg sodium or less per bun (that's 2 slices) to save room for salty fixings. And as with any whole-grain bread, the first ingredient listed should be a whole-grain flour.

BEST MULTIGRAIN: WINNER: Multi Grain Sandwich Onebun, $3.99 (21 oz/8 buns), 35g whole grains
Pillowy and thick, surprisingly. Toasty notes of wheat mix well with earthy barley and millet. Flax and sunflower seeds add crunchy interest.

BEST WHOLE-WHEAT: WINNER: Arnold 100% Whole-Grain Sandwich Thins Rolls, $2.79 (12 oz/8 buns) 22g whole grains
Hints of oat balance a malty wheat flavor without the bitterness we found in some others. (The Arnold brand goes by Oroweat in the West, Brownberry in the Midwest.)

BEST KID-FRIENDLY: WINNER: Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Sandwich bread in Soft Honey Whole Wheat, $3.49 (12 oz/8 buns), 18g whole grains
These cutesy fish-shaped thins have a subtle wheat flavor underpinned with honey for a just-right amount of sweetness.

HOW WE TESTED:   A panel of Cooking Light staff sampled 16 nationally available bread thins in one blind tasting.
