About Cooking Light magazine's 2010 Taste Test Awards: Cooking Light editors chose products available in major supermarkets nationwide and then vetted those products against nutrition standards, omitting any with artificial trans fats, artificial sugars, or too much salt. The 200 products that made the cut were then tasted "blind," with the brands of each product unknown to the tasters until after the winners were selected.
