BOSTON (CBS) – The Phantom Gourmet recently purchased four brands of fruit cocktail at a local supermarket.

The sweet contenders were Del Monte, Dole, Libby’s and Polar.

Del Monte’s chunky mixed fruit finished at the bottom of the bunch. This can offers plenty of variety, featuring peaches, pears, grapes, pineapples and cherries, but unfortunately they all taste pretty much the same. Even worse, these small chunks are so mushy, Phantom almost forgot to chew.

A step up from there is Libby’s fruit mix. This tropical blend of guava and red and yellow papaya boasts bright colors and bold flavors, but they just aren’t the kind of flavors Phantom found very appealing. On the upside, these big chunks have a nice firm texture, making Libby’s a good choice if you’re looking for something exotic.

The runner up is Polar mixed fruit. This glass jar gives customers a good look at what they’re getting before they even pop the top. The decent-sized pieces of fruit tasted fine, but there just isn’t enough of them. In fact, this jar serves up so much syrup, Phantom suggests serving it with a straw.

The best choice by far, Dole mixed fruit serves up pineapple, peaches, pears and apples in 100% fruit juice. These big slices are firm and extra juicy, tasting as close to fresh as you can get. They even come in a handy resealable plastic jar.

For more food and fun, watch the Phantom Gourmet every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on myTV 38.
