The Very Best Grocery Products for 2023, Chosen by You

From yogurt to peanut butter, these are the brands your fellow home cooks trust, swear by, and just can't live without.

For the third annual Allrecipes Community Choice Awards, we asked you, our most savvy home cooks, to vote for what you think are the absolute best brands at the grocery store. With rising costs and seemingly hundreds of new items to choose from, what you decide to add to your cart matters. Our Allrecipes community of 60+ million home cooks weighed in, we tabulated the results, and now have the final award-winning list of products that make cooking easier, food tastier, and families happier. Did your favorite finds make the cut?

How the Winners Were Selected

The 3,431 readers who responded to our summer 2022 survey were asked to choose their favorite brands across 65 different grocery and household categories. Readers had the option to select multiple brands, skip categories, and write in an answer to categories. They also had the opportunity to explain why they liked a certain brand. The winner in each category below is the brand that received the most votes.

The 2023 Allrecipes Community Choice Awards

Here are the grocery brands that found their way into our readers' carts again, and again, and again this past year. These are the products that are worth rolling out the red carpet for and celebrating. Let's give a warm welcome to our (grocery) class of 2023!

The Lunch and Dinner Winners (+ Drinks!)

Every home cook needs a few kitchen staples that they can rely on for easy, delicious meals. A special jar of pasta sauce can make weeknight dinners more enjoyable, a grab-and-go lunch can save you from the vending machine, and a thirst-quenching drink will round out whatever you're eating. Ready to stock your arsenal? Here are our readers' favorite finds when it comes to lunch, dinner, and drinks.

Frozen Assets and Pantry Keepers

We've all been there: You come home late from work. You're tired. You had a long day. You're hungry. What are you supposed to do? Easy. It's time to dig into your pantry or freezer! Turn on the oven and you'll have pizza in minutes thanks to DiGiorno, or take out the blue box (we're talking mac, of course) for a satisfying meal that everyone will love. These two magic spots in the kitchen are where easy meals, snacks, and appetizers are born—and our readers have opinions on the brands to stock up on.

"Nothing about DiGiorno is like a frozen pizza. It's just like a delivery pizza." - RUTH K., Keyser, WV

The Dairy (and Non-Dairy) Best

Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for....the best dairy and non-dairy finds at the grocery store! With increasingly more options, it's easy for home cooks to leave out the dairy if they need to, or embrace it when they want. Here are the brands that Allrecipes' readers turn to most for yogurt, cheese, butter, and more.

"Chobani's creaminess and flavor are hard to beat." - BARBARA F., Reno, NV

Condiment Kings (and Queens)

Raise your hand if you have more than five condiments in your fridge at this very moment. How about 10? ...15? Yeah, same. It's safe to say that our community of home cooks is pretty obsessed with condiments. From the store-bought salad dressing that makes our greens pop, to the jarred salsa that we always pair with tortilla chips, you won't catch us without these essential flavor boosters in 2023.

"Hellmann's is all I'll use, especially for my potato salad. Nothing else will ever compare." - MILLIE G., Reading, PA
