Love Corn Review

Our family is always looking out for new snacks to try, so I was very curious to try out Love Corn as it’s something different to the usual snacks we have at home. Love Corn is a crunchy snack made up of corn that has been roasted and seasoned – and it tastes so good! This snack was a hit with all four of my kids, and is great for adults too. It’s brilliant to discover a new snack that suits all ages within our family and it comes in a few flavours to keep some variety.

The four flavours available are Sea Salt, Salt & Vinegar; Smoked BBQ and Habanero Chilli and they are available in a variety of bag sizes: 20g snack pack, 45g portion size and 115g for sharing.
