Philippines Epilogue: Chichacorn

Lutong Ilocos Garlic Enriched Crunchy Chichacorn

Mmm...that was awesome! I bought this at a random stall in Manila yesterday afternoon as it looked like it might be pretty good, and indeed it was. Much lighter than American Corn Nuts, this crunchy little snack was another great vehicle for ingesting salt and grease. The garlic flavor sure made it addictive too. Presumably these were incidentally the same corn bits that were mentioned yesterday?

corn bits are more like fried corn which is not as light as the chichacorn. But both are addictive. The chichacorn even comes in other flavors like cheese and bbq

Hiya I'm the same anonymous from the previous post! Did you happen to take up my suggestion? Hahaha. There are so many flavors out there try looking out for the brand "M.L Cornbits Special" it comes in quite a tiny packaging :)
