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.

Chicken and Apple Sausage

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Lou’s Famous. We looked far and wide for sausages with healthy salt levels (less than 200mg per ounce), and finally found Lou’s: a flavor-packed punch of pepper, sage, and sweet apple with just 185mg sodium per ounce.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Al Fresco Sweet Apple. As delectably juicy as the pork version, but with about half the calories and almost 80% less saturated fat.
