It's Awesome Toasted Corn

Having consumed our fair share of “bagged” “corn nuts” of the overly giant sized kernels, we were intrigued. You know the old saying ,“bigger is better”, is more fun to say than it is in practice!

When it comes to taste, flavor and crunch, these little, normal sized corn kernels are da bomb! Crunchy thru and thru each one crunches just right. Eat one at a time and you will get 11 crunches (of biting) before you are done. Depending on your crunch speed about 6 seconds of time!

With three flavors, Toasted Corn, Spicy Toasted Corn, and Salt and Pepper Toasted Corn, there is something corny here for everyone! (see below)

Starting with non-GMO corn kernels the just plain “Toasted” version is my favorite. A little oil and salt and it is perfect in every possible way! I thought bigger kernels were better but not anymore. It’s hard to exclaim exactly why we love these so much, but they are the perfect munch food. For desk or a long car ride, they are the just right grab and bite snack treat.

Toasted corn is exactly that, corn kernel un-popped, un-boiled, but toasted and most often oiled and salted.

CornNuts (Kraft Foods), Cornick (Phillipines), Diana (El Salvador), Cancha (Peru, Equador) are all variations of a Corn Kernel that is “toasted”. The base variation is seasoned with oil and salt. Garlic, chili cheese, adobo, BBQ, ranch etc. are some of the many flavor variations available today.

The Toasted Corn was first introduced here in the US by Albert Holloway in Oakland, California in 1936. Originally sold as a free Tavern snack food (in 1900 there was an estimated 265,000 legal and illegal Taverns) it later became the CornNuts with a hybrid of the Cuzco corn from Cusco, Peru being grown in California. In 1998, Nabisco purchased the business.
