Two experienced sensory testers tasted, in total, 32 Jenny Craig products and 27 Nutrisystem Basic products. Where possible, we chose similar items. We also conducted a side test of six frozen entrées from Nutrisystem's more expensive Select line. The products were tasted in random order within categories—breakfasts with breakfasts, snacks with snacks, and so on.
Our tasters not only didn't know whose product they were tasting but also didn't know they were diet meals. Of the 59 items we tasted in our main round of tests, only five scored Very Good—all from Jenny Craig. Of the 10 items we deemed Fair, eight were from Nutrisystem. Overall, the foods from Jenny Craig did slightly better than Nutrisystem's. Jenny Craig's edge came mainly from its lunch and dinner entrées, most of which were frozen rather than shelf-stable.
The frozen Nutrisystem Select dinner entrées we tested fared much better than the company's shelf-stable items.
