Caramel Corn - Vanilla Ice cream corn puffs

Posted by Linda on 08. 2013 0 comments
Alright, here's my second food review on another snack I bought at Maruyu, for today I decided to review another flavour of 'Caramel Corn'; these delectable corn puff snacks from Tohato, one of my personal favourite snack brands!

I was ecstatic when I discovered a whole section of Caramel Corn snacks on 1 side of the snack aisle at Maruyu, so I wasted no time and grabbed a few packs of Caramel Corn and threw them into my shopping basket! I wanted to buy the other flavours of CC that I didn't get, but I didn't want to spend too much money on CC since there were alot of other snacks I bought. So I plan to buy the other flavours the next time I go to Maruyu.

I bought 3 packs of CC that day, all different flavors, this is the Vanilla ice cream flavour:
Let's firstly start with the texture of the corn puffs, as I anticipated, they were just the right texture with a lovely soft crunch to them. Unlike many corn puff snacks manufactured in western countries that I've snacked on, Tohato's CC corn puffs have a softer texture, so they can literally melt in your mouth quicker, if you choose to let them melt in your mouth instead of munching on them.
As for the flavour of the corn puffs, after the makers at Tohato's dismal attempt with the matcha & black honey flavour, they have truly redeemed themselves with this vanilla ice cream flavour, because for me, I think they executed the vanilla ice flavour quite well. Although these CC corn puff snacks are sweetened on standard, I was still able to taste the particular sweet vanilla flavour in the corn puffs, even though the vanilla flavour was very subtle.
Labeled on the packaging, they also recommend you to put these corn puffs in the fridge for a little while just to chill those puffs, so that when you munch on them, the cold temperature of the corn puffs would make you feel more reminiscent of eating actual vanilla ice cream. But I was so hungry when I was snacking on these corn puffs, I was literally devouring these puff goodies that I didn't care to chill them in the fridge!

Overall, I love these vanilla ice cream CC corn puffs, although the makers at Tohato could have enhanced the vanilla flavour a little bit more, but vanilla itself doesn't have a particularly strong flavour anyway, so I wasn't bothered by the mildness of the vanilla flavour in the corn puffs. I think Tohato really executed this flavour quite well, to me, this was a good redemption from Tohato after their disappointing matcha & black honey flavour CC. Would I buy this vanilla ice cream flavour CC again? Yes!

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
