Corn potage (or, how I’ll try pretty much anything once)


In my class today, one of the students brought some Japanese snacks she’d picked up over Spring Break, and handed them out to those of us sitting around her.

Lots of speculation among the group about what we would find inside the wrapper. Some guessed there would be baby ears of corn, some figured it was some kind of cracker.

There’s not much on the label to give us any kind of clue.

Oh, hey! A website! Except the website is all in Japanese too. Oh, well, nothing to do but unwrap it and see what’s inside.

OK, it’s a stick of some sort, with a faintly sweet smell, like corn muffins.

It has the texture of a Funyun, and the flavor of corn on the cob, with a little onion, and more than a hint of nori.

I’d eat it again. Tasty.

  1. I work with a woman who is Korean, and she’s always bringing in new and interesting treats for us to try. I can’t think of anything, offhand, that I haven’t at least found interesting. Most of it is really good.
