ChefsBest is pleased to announce the winners of the Best Taste and Excellence Awards from the independent taste evaluations of several beverage product categories.

With over a decade in market and millions of impressions per month, the ChefsBest medallion is a symbol consumers know and trust. Each of the awards is supported by its own set of qualifications to validate the powerful advertising claims brands use in market. Brand managers often turn to ChefsBest to enhance their current marketing efforts and to secure those coveted claims.
The ChefsBest Best Taste Award is bestowed upon only one product in each category. It signifies to both consumers and buyers that only one product has secured the distinction as best tasting. Products evaluated for Best Taste are defined as top-selling by Nielsen or IRI data. Advertising claims demonstrating superiority, like “Best Tasting,” “America’s Best,” or “Highest Quality,” can be made by winners.
The ChefsBest Excellence Award is granted to products that surpass quality standards established by ChefsBest Certified Master Tasters. Winners are identified as those products that meet or exceed benchmark standards for their respective product categories. It is a non-comparative award; multiple products may earn an Excellence Award in the same category because they are judged and rated based on their own merits. Winners may use substantiated advertising claims like “Endorsed by Professional Chefs,” “Award-Winning Taste,” and “Highly Rated.”
