Taste Test

Taste test: Looking back on edamame, other picks from 2013

Edamame, Greek yogurt and almond milk were among the healthier options sampled by our panelists during the first half of 2013. Judges tasted their share of new fruit and cereal bars, which seem to multiply overnight on grocery store shelves. And, they tried plenty of new treats, including frozen bananas dipped in dark chocolate. In between, panelists went back to some favorite comfort foods like chicken pot pies, tomato soup and oatmeal. Every summer, we provide readers with a list of the foods the judges have preferred and the new products they have sampled so far this year. The food comparisons were scored by points with a possible total of 100.
