On a casual stroll through the grocery store, it can be hard to tell which new products are worth trying. Luckily, the world's largest consumer-voted awards for products, Product of the Year USA, recently announced the winners for its 2019 Product of the Year Awards.

“Backed by the votes of over 40,000 everyday consumers, the distinctive Product of the Year logo helps shoppers identify the best new products in the supermarket, and saves them valuable time and money during the shopping experience,” Mike Nolan, chief executive officer of Product of the Year, said in a press release.
