Taste test: new foods, including a Progresso dinner and a Silk drink

The Taster's Choice panelists frequently say they volunteer to taste new food items so our readers don't have to. That was a tough job this week when they sampled four new products found at local grocery stores. The items ranged from breakfast and dinner choices to a dairy-, soy- and lactose-free drink and a junk food dessert. While a couple of options made the cut, most of these items won't be making it into the shopping carts of our tasters any time soon.
