This summer, the Delicious Living team wrangled more than 950 product nominations for the fourth-annual Best Bite Awards. Although we’re thrilled that so many natural brands submitted products for us to consider, that, dear reader, is a lot of different foods and beverages to sample—and sample we did.
It took us a full week to sift through all of this year's categories, which run the gamut from Best Pouch to Best Paleo-Friendly Snack. We noshed vegan ice cream for breakfast. We discussed the nuances of veggie burgers and organic yogurt. We swilled numerous fizzy beverages. And the entire time, we analyzed which products had the best nutrition, sourcing story and (obviously) flavor.
Without further ado, we’re thrilled to present our 33 exemplary winners and finalists. Use this list to help inform what goes into your cart the next time you're shopping at your local natural store.
