Do you ever get overwhelmed by the sheer number of products available in every category? Yeah, us too. So we look forward to the Product of the Year Awards to help guide us. 

Every year the consumer research firm Kantar elicits the opinions of 40,000 consumers to award 46 products the Product of the Year title in various categories, everything from wellness supplements to windshield wiper blades. Consumers test each product in their homes, cars, and offices, and provide feedback on features like innovation, effectiveness, taste (for some categories – not the windshield wipers), and quality. 

Kantar compiles the consumer feedback to narrow down a single winner in each category. The winners get a red “Product of the Year” seal, useful to seek out when you’re shopping for cleaning supplies and groceries. 

These are our 8 favorite items from the 2024 Product of the Year Awards.

This organic coffee won in the Functional Health category. The beans are fortified with ashwagandha, ginkgo, and lion’s mane: three adaptogens that may help alleviate stress and enhance focus.

In the Healthy Beverage category, this frozen smoothie came out on top. Each bag contains 4 smoothie “pucks” made with berries, cherries, apples, bananas, and a blend of greens like spirulina and broccoli. To whip up an antioxidant-packed smoothie, simply pop a puck or two in a blender with water or your liquid of choice, and blend until creamy.
