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 Hummus

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Tribe Classic. Hummus has come out of nowhere to crowd shelves with dozens of flavors. We tried the plain versions only and loved Tribe, which starts with fresh chickpea flavor, adds just the right hint of sesame tang, and ends with a good balance of cumin and garlic.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Athenos Original. A delicious hummus for garlic lovers, with a slightly tart, lemony finish.
