Our Review Factors
What were we looking for when reviewing Sundrop Sweet Corn?
Ease and convenience of preparation, freshness, desirable taste and texture were some of our top parameters.
We were looking for fresh-tasting corn that had the natural sweetness. Since ready to eat corn is packed with liquid, did it take up the flavor of the liquid? What about the seasoning mix, was it balanced or oversalted?
Were the corn kernels soft, plumped, and juicy? Or dried and flat? Did the texture change after we heated them?

How we made it?
There are two recommended methods of preparation- in a microwave or on a stovetop.
We used the stove top method. In a deep vessel, we heated some water until it reached a boil. Once boiled, it was taken off the flame and we immersed the unopened corn pouch for three minutes.
After the three-minute wait, we drained the liquid and emptied the remaining contents (corn kernels) in a bowl. To this, we added 5 grams of butter (regular, salted butter) with the seasoning (which came with the corn), mixed well, and served it.
Aroma + Appearance
The corn kernels were a slightly deeper yellow than fresh ones and had a SOUR aroma. We also noticed a brine-like smell.
Taste + Texture
The corn kernels were fairly plump and had a juicy bite. Though the pack mentions there is no use of brine, there was a strong sour, salty aroma.
For those who do not know, bine is a heavily salted liquid used to preserve freshness of food. Used in many imported jalapenos and olives.
The corn kernels had a oddly sour taste, a pickle-like sourness. It did not feel fresh but had the natural sweetness. That said, this sweetness was overpowered by the sourness. Even after adding butter and the seasoning, this off-putting taste couldn’t be masked.
- Fairly easy to prepare.
- Pocket-friendly snack.
- Kernels have a juicy bite.
- The aroma was sour and off-putting.
- It had an undesirable sourness which doesn’t get masked even after adding chaat masala and butter.
Meant for quick snacking when you don’t want to boil corn.
