GIANT Peruvian Inca Corn

GIANT Peruvian Inca Corn

March 20, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

Way back in the days of the Incan empire (approx. mid-15th-mid-16th centuries), toasted corn was a common snack. The Incas experimented widely with corn. They hybridized and crossbred varieties to create bigger, more flavorful kernels. The white Peruvian corn used in our GIANT Peruvian Inca Corn is known as Choclo or Cuzco, and is a direct descendent of the varieties created and cultivated by the Incas. It’s grown in Urubamba, Peru, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and it really is GIANT! In fact, the kernels are five times the size of the average North American corn kernels. When toasted, the corn takes on a nutty flavor, and the size of the kernels translates to GIANT crunch! We’ve added a little salt to round out the flavor. You don’t need to be in a bar to enjoy them, but they do pair nicely with a cold beer.

We’re selling each eight ounce bag of kosher certified Trader Joe’s GIANT Peruvian Inca Corn for $1.99, a GIANT value, every day.
