A national representative survey of 40,000 consumers conducted by consumer research firm Kantar TNS helps determine the Product of the Year winners each year so that Americans can best identify the top new products.

“Competition is fierce among consumer brands, with thousands of new products introduced to the market each year,” said Mike Nolan, CEO of Product of the Year USA, in a news release. “This year’s winners will have a true advantage over competitors as they are able to utilize the distinctive red Product of the Year logo on packaging and in brand advertising to show shoppers that 40,000 consumers recommend their product against the competition.”

Each year, Product of the Year takes entries from new consumer products launched within the previous year that demonstrate innovation within their industry. Product nominations are then placed into categories such as beauty, personal care, household essentials, food and beverages, and are assessed on seven key measures. One product is then named the winner of each category, based on the results of the consumer survey.

The 28 winners of the 2017 Product of the Year Award are:
