REVEALED: The top 10 Taste Tests by Food24
All our best taste tests – plus all the results.
The Food24 team started reviewing South Africa’s favourite grocery store products back in September 2018, and immediately we were flooded with requests about which food products we should do next. We soon learnt that humble items like mayonnaise and instant coffee have very firm places in the hearts (and opinions) of South Africans.
Here are the top 10 taste tests of all time, with all the results included. Chat to us in the comments about which item we should test next!
Last Christmas, we sat down to do some serious work. What is the best bubbly to toast with? We invited award-winning sommelier and wine maker Joseph Dhafana to lead our tasting panel.
Are you Team Niknaks or Team Flings forever? We loved doing this taste test, orange fingertips and all!
Easter in South Africa just wouldn’t be the same without strings of marshmallow-and-chocolate treats. The double chocolate flavoured egg was the team favourite here!
Going into a Taste Test, we always secretly hope for a big upset. In this one, it was the vegan mayo that really impressed us!
This story sparked a very vibrant discussion within our team! Which one is the best – is it the green triangle or the purple hazelnut one?
A long time ago, before we ever thought that hot pies would be banned under Lockdown 2020, we tasted a selection of chicken pies head to head to find the best.
Again with the chocolate! This was a delicious taste test, and we had many volunteers!
What is a don pedro without your favourite marula cream liqueur? Well, we tried some of the alternatives and found a new favourite.
After doing this taste test, we learnt a new rule: tomato sauce is right up there with touchy topics like politics and religion!
Did you know that in South Africa, 6 out of 10 coffees are made with Ricoffy? Its affordable price and creamy taste did very well against the premium brands.
