Corn on the cob is one of my favorite parts of summer - it makes me think of barbecues and picnics and being outdoors in the beautiful weather. In the middle of winter, though, good corn can be hard to come by. I know that frozen corn makes a terrific snack (if you haven't tried it, please do so), so when I saw Sensible Foods Sweet Corn Organic Crunch Dried Snacks, I thought it was an interesting idea as a snack.
What really attracted me to this product was the fact that it's made with minimal ingredients. The Sweet Corn variety has just 100% organic sweet corn, sea salt, and nothing else (yes, 'nothing else' is actually the last of these is listed on the ingredient list). Mmm! With ingredients like these, I had no doubt this snack would taste delicious. Boy was I right. The proprietary "Crunch Dried Process" removes water but leaves all the deliciousness of the sweet corn. The kernels are crunchy, remarkably sweet and salty at the same time. The only thing bad about this snack is how soon it disappears. A bag is only 0.75 ounces (21 grams), so it's perhaps not as satisfying as a full ear of corn, but it sure does taste delicious.
Each pouch of Sensible Foods Organic Sweet Corn Crunch Dried Snacks is the equivalent of 1/2 cup of fresh corn, and clocks in at 70 calories, 1 gram of fat, 8% of the daily value for sodium, 3 grams of fiber and 7 grams of sugar. I picked up a one-serving pouch for $1.99 at Whole Foods, a pretty steep price to pay for one bag, but I will definitely be ordering some of these from Amazon.com very soon. They are also available in a variety of different flavors, including Cherry Berry, Tropical Blend, Orchard Blend, 100% Organic Supersweet Corn, 100% Organic Cherry Berry, 100% Organic Apple Harvest, and Organic Crunch Dried Roasted Soy Nuts. Have you tried these yet - what did you think?!
