Cornitos Pop n Crunch Corn Nuts – Our Review Factors
For our Cornitos Pop n Crunch Corn Nuts taste test, we have taken into account the following factors for review. We have discussed the taste, flavour, crunch, texture, freshness and price of both the variants.
When it comes to reviewing packaged nuts, taste is the most crucial parameter that is considered. How tasty are these nuts? Does the name of the flavour justify the taste? Are they addictive or did we just stop at a single bite?
This parameter will take into account how flavorful the corn nuts are. In our review of the two variants, we focused on how overpowering or mild the flavours were. Did it taste delicious or did it fail to create a mark?
When it comes to packaged snacks, the level of crunch is another crucial review factor. Were the nuts crunchy? How crisp was the texture?
The freshness of any packaged snack is determined based on how well it is packed and stored. Does it come in a resealable pouch? Does it have any stale smell or taste?
For retaining the long-term freshness of corn nuts, it is essential to store them correctly after opening.
This factor helps us decide are these corn nuts priced economically? Or are these overpriced? Do the taste and flavour justify the price paid for this pack?

|Lemon Chilli Cilantro
We at Team Mishry recently reviewed two different flavours of the Cornitos Pop n Crunch Corn Nuts. For our taste test, we picked up the Lemon Chilli Cilantro and the Cheesy Jalapeno flavours.
1. Lemon Chilli
The first flavour that we reviewed was the Lemon Chilli Cilantro. For our review, we ordered a 150 gm pack which was priced at Rs. 140.
The flavour of lemon was prominent in these nuts. These nuts taste tangy. It had a mild hint of chilli which was not overpowering. As we tasted the corn nuts, we also felt a subtle taste of roasted coriander.
The flavours of the Lemon Chilli Cilantro variant were not too strong and had a mild aroma. If you are someone who loves to indulge in a tangy snack, the Lemon Chilli Cilantro can be your pick. This is definately an off-beat flavor as compared to many others in the Indian market like cheese, masala and pudina.

2. Cheesy Jalapeno
The Cheesy Jalapeno corn nuts were the second flavour that we reviewed. We ordered a 150 gm pack priced at Rs. 140.
As we opened the pack, we felt that the aroma of cheese was intense. However, as we tasted the nuts, the flavour of the cheese was much milder. These smell cheesier than they taste.
The taste of jalapeños was very weak and did not add anything to the overall flavor profile of the corn nuts. We loved the fact that despite the pack being kept open, the crunchiness of the corn nuts was well maintained.
