Have you ever eaten something you thought was nutritious only to later discover it's actually quite the opposite?

Some of New Zealand's most misleading products have been named and shamed in Consumer's Bad Taste Food Awards for 2017.

The website says the awards "call out manufacturers on the claims they use to make their products seem like better choices".

"However, take a look behind the marketing speak and you'll find the reality is often vastly different."

Here is the full list of the nominees.

  • Flavoured water
  • Muesli
  • Fruit bars
  • Protein yoghurt
  • Fat free marshmellows
  • Iced tea
  • Gourmet salt
  • Liquid breakfasts
