A collection of snacks in the Philippines


Corn Bits special

I recently wrote about Boy Bawang.  It’s the cornick for the masses.  But what about cornick for sophisticated people?

The undisputed gourmet cornick award goes to W.L. Foods Corn bits special.

Corn bits special is an amazing blend of green peas, peanuts, corn, cracker nuts, and cracker pillows.  It makes snacking on cornick quite fun as the various flavours and crunchy textures never fail to tantalize my tastebuds.

Corn bits special contains a whopping 36% RDA of FAT and 311 mg of sodium!  Who cares ?  It’s delicious!


Boy Bawang

In the 90’s whenever you think of corn snacks, Safari was the first snack that came to mind.  It was the undisputed king of cornick. Not anymore.  Boy Bawang has come and has succesfully upstaged the king from its throne.

Manufactured by KSK food producs, this Fried corn snack weighs in at a whopping 20% RDA of saturated fat per serving and an enormous 230mg of Sodium per serving.

Boy bawang is known for its garlicky flavour and its garlic bits.  Everyone loves bits of fried garlic in their cornick or fried peanuts.  Boy Bawang has even injected itself into our popular culture by having a super hero character named Boy Bawang appear  on popular kids show Super Inggo.

I know a lot of People love Boy Bawang, but I’m not one of them.

Personally I prefer Safari. Chili garlic flavour.
