Morrisons Value Sweetcorn
Advantages: Tasty and cheap
Disadvantages: None at all
I absolutely love sweetcorn, whether it be mixed up with some tuna and mayo or put in with a pasta or served on it's own as a simple side dish it's just simply one of my favourite things to eat! I find it's really very versatile and because it's usually juicy and crunchy I like the texture of it which is why I bought a can of this in Morrisons costing about 37p for the can the other day.
Bright yellow label with dark green writing on it around the main of the can. On the front of the can I'm told it's Morrisons 'Value' Sweetcorn and the size is stated (which in this case is 326g), there is an at a glance nutritional value chart shown and I'm told that of course this product is suitable for Vegetarians. On the back of the can other information includes ingredients being listed (Sweetcorn kernel's, water, sugar, salt) I'm given a full nutritional rundown chart and storage advice, I'm told how to heat them up and contact details for Morrisons are given. It is an economy looking can but surely it's the sweetcorn that counts and that is it? lol.
Well you can apparently eat this cold so no need to heat it through if you don't want to so you could just drain it and add it to foods or to salads or whatever. Add seasoning to taste, add it to sauces, in with soups towards the end of cooking or you can of course heat the sweetcorn on the hob, in a saucepan in the water provided and simply drain. Like I said earlier sweetcorn is incredibly versatile!
Personally I haven't eaten it cold and I don't fancy it that way! I did however heat half the can up and had them with sausage and chips and the other half of the can got mixed with tuna and mayonnaise and my Mum nicked a few kernel's to top a pizza with she was making.
As far as I can see any way you wish to use these is fine and entirely up to you!
They are small kernel's, bright yellow in colour and rather well formed. Crunchy, slightly sweet but in a natural way the water these come in is a little murky looking but your either meant to throw that away or cook the product in it. The corn is crunchy and not at all dense and it has a fresh feel to it. All round it's a nice, economy sweetcorn and versatile to boot. There is nothing to dislike about this product apart from the cheap labelling!
Nutritional Information Per 1/2 Can:
Only available in Morrisons stores.
Summary: A great sweetcorn for a great price!
