4700 BC Sweet Corn is a convenient snack option available in multiple flavors. The natural taste and texture of corn has been retained well.

There’s something about a piping hot portion of corn with a hearty dollop of butter, some lime juice and salt. Don’t you think so? Undeniably fresh and addictive, somewhere in the early 2000’s buttered corn became a big part of the Indian street food scene.

While studying about new launches, our team of researchers found an instant version by 4700 BC. By instant we mean, there’s no need to boil or season the corn. All you need to do is open the cup and heat it. Our 4700 BC Sweet Corn review is based upon parameters like taste and texture.

Our Review Factors

What were we looking for when reviewing 4700 BC Sweet Corn?

The taste and texture were the prime focus. In addition to these, we also gauged the ingredients, the price, and how convenient or travel-friendly the packaging was. 

1. Taste

First and foremost, we recorded how the corn kernels tasted before adding the seasoning. Fresh, sweet, or bitter like they’ve gone bad, how was the taste? Is there any flavor of brine? 

Next, we moved to the seasoning. Does it have bold flavors or were the mild? Did it require adjustments? How close do the flavors come to the labelled tags?

4700 BC Sweet Corn Flavours – Detailed Review

Our experience with the three variants of 4700 BC Sweet Corn has been shared in the following section.

These have the characteristic golden appearance.

1. Barbeque

Price + Packaging

The corn kernels are packed in a transparent, plastic cup, with a sealed lid and a plastic spoon.  This cup is placed inside a cardboard cup holder. This holds all information regarding the brand, nutrition information, price, and more. 

One cup holds 80 grams of product and is priced at Rs 80/- with a six months shelf life. 

Main Ingredients

This is made with sweet corn (88%), water, and iodised salt (1%). The seasoning is made with maltodextrin, sugar, dehydrated vegetables (onion, garlic, tomato), iodised salt, modified starc (INS 1422), dextrose, mixed spices, hydrolyzed protein (corn), edible vegetable oil (palm oil & sunflower oil), anticaking agent (INS 551), sequestrant (INS 451 (I)), flavor enhancer (INS 627, INS 631), acidity regulator (INS 330).

This variant offers 84 Kcal per 100 grams. This value is identical to regular boiled sweet corn. 

How did we prepare this?

There were no clear instructions on the pack, specifically whether the seal needs to be opened, and if yes, partially or completely. We put the cup in the microwave without opening the seal and it blasted open inside, as it was heating up. Hence, we recommend partially opening the seal.

Our Experience

Other than the unclear instructions, we had a pretty good experience with this product. 

The corn kernels seemed to be of good quality as they were large-sized and plumped up well after heating in the microwave. They had a nice bite too. 

Fortunately, there was no flavor or aftertaste of brine. This would have ruined the entire experience. The corn kernels had that natural sweetness which we liked. As for the BBQ flavor, it was quite delicious. BBQ flavors are characterized by smoky, savory, spicy, tangy, and slightly sweet tasting notes. 4700 BC Sweet Corn seasoning showcased these flavors really well. 

Taste- 4/5

  • Plump corn
  • Fresh taste

2. Natural

Price + Packaging

The packaging and net quantity are identical to the above variant. 4700 BC Sweet Corn in Natural is priced at Rs 75/-

Main Ingredients

The ingredients are sweet corn (88%), water, and iodised salt (1%).

It provides 84 Kcal per 100 grams. 

How did we prepare this?

This time, we opened the seal a little bit to allow steam to escape while heating in the microwave. No mishaps at this stage and it took 30-60 seconds.

Sweet, juicy, plump- just perfect.

Our Experience

The overall quality (taste and texture) of the corn kernels was consistent throughout the three variants. The same plumpness, juicy bite, and freshness were retained. In terms of taste, the innate sweetness of sweet corn was present. The salt was adding sparingly. No complains over this, as it gives the liberty to adjust the seasoning as desired.

  • Top notch quality of corn
  • Priced economically
  • Natural sweetness of corn was present
