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.

Reduced-Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Progresso. Big chunks of white meat chicken and carrots, plus lots of rotini noodles, took Progresso to the top. The hearty broth  approaches homemade, but you can be eating it in seconds instead of hours.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Campbell’s Select Harvest. A nice hint of rosemary and sage perk up this soup, which is built on a broth that’s rich in chicken flavor.
