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.

Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Fage. This is the brand that started the craze, and it’s the gold-medal standard. Beautifully thick, creamy, with a strong tangy kick. You’ll like every ingredient on the list; no stabilizers or thickeners.

TASTE TEST AWARDS: Chobani. Supersmooth with slightly less tang than our winner, making it ideal for use in recipes or for anyone who wants less tartness.

Voskos Organic. So thick and luscious that it would be a great swap for full-fat sour cream.
