Each week, the Sporked team sidles up to the tasting table and sets out to find the absolute best of the best packaged foods, the gold hidden in the grocery aisles. Each week we’ll bring you five standouts that truly rocked our taste buds and changed our lives—or at least our buying habits. Here are the best things we ate this week.

Del Monte Sweet Pickle Relish

I am traditionally a dill guy, but Del Monte has converted me to a sweet pickle relish lover. This relish almost feels fancy, like something you’d get at a farmers market from a local pickle artisan. It’s sweet but not too sweet. The texture is perfect. Don’t waste your time with other sweet relish.

Sensible Portions Zesty Ranch Garden Veggie Straws

Despite this brand’s terrible name, we freaked for Sensible Ranch’s Zesty Ranch Garden Veggie Straws. They’re light and crispy. The ranch flavor is, in fact, zesty! I would happily trade in my chips for these veggie straws (and that’s saying a lot).

Hillshire Farm Oven Roasted Premium Carved Turkey Breast

Hillshire Farm Oven Roasted Premium Carved Turkey Breast is the best thick-cut turkey we tried during our deli turkey taste test. This is for real turkey lovers. It’ll give you year-round thanksgiving-leftover-sandwich vibes in the best way possible. This turkey would also be wonderful tossed onto a turkey cobb salad. If you like turkey, add this to your grocery list!

Market Pantry Chipotle Ranch

Market Pantry can be hit or miss. This chipotle ranch is a massive hit. It is so incredibly good. It is creamy and has a nice kick. This would be awesome on a taco salad or for dipping chicken nuggets. You could even use this as a sandwich spread. Honestly, put this on everything.

Goldfish Grahams S’mores Baked Graham Snacks

These S’mores Goldfish Grahams are the underdog of the week. We were not enticed by sweet Goldfish, but now we’re addicted. The combination of the chocolate fish, graham cracker fish, and fish-shaped marshmallows is too cute and delicious not to love.
