Best Loved Brands

100+ foods tested. The win­ners re­vealed.

Taste of Home - - SEPTEMBER•OCTOBER -

Stand­ing in front of gro­cery store shelves can be mind-bog­gling.

From the aisles to the freezer sec­tion, there are dozens of brands in ev­ery food cat­e­gory to choose from. Nar­row­ing them down to de­ter­mine the tasti­est op­tions for your fam­ily would take weeks upon weeks of non­stop cook­ing. That’s where Taste of Home comes in.

Over the course of four months, our Test Kitchen cooks and ed­i­tors joined forces to taste test the most pop­u­lar brands across five food cat­e­gories—break­fast, snacks, condi­ments and sauces, frozen foods, and bak­ing. We crunched, munched, dipped and sipped our way through a to­tal of 20 food types, us­ing the same rigor we ap­ply to all the recipes you’ve come to trust from Taste of Home, eval­u­at­ing each brand’s fla­vor, ap­pear­ance, tex­ture, ac­ces­si­bil­ity and pri­ce­point.

Here, we present our “Best Loved” pan­cake mixes, hum­muses, hot sauces, meat­balls and brownie mixes, plus a recipe made with each of our top picks. You’ll find all the win­ners on our web­site, along with de­tails from each taste test, be­hind-the-scenes photographs, recipe col­lec­tions and how-to cook­ing videos. En­joy. And happy shop­ping!
