Southern Kitchen’s definitive ranking of the best you can buy

Southerners know a breakfast spread isn’t complete without a healthy offering of grits. We love our grits creamy, cheesy and — of course — when they’re paired with shrimp. Plain grits are not only a part of any good Southern menu, but they’re also an open canvas onto which many chefs add their own touch.

This same customization applies to home chefs as well. However, before you start adding cheese and spices, you have to know that the grits themselves are great. And who are we to just trust what we see prominently displaced at the grocery store? We wanted to try a handful of different, easy-to-find grits to see which ones are actually the best. Which grits have the best overall texture and flavor? Are pricier, stone-ground grits really worth it? You can probably guess the answer to this last question, but some of our favorite brands may surprise you.
