Today's Review: Mikado Corn On The Cob


Hey guys, do you like corn on the cob? Of course you do. But who wants to go to all that trouble of cooking it, right? Well, it turns out you can get your corn on the cob pre-cooked and vacuum sealed in plastic, all for the low low price of 89p, thank you Home Bargains!

Of course, cooking corn on the cob is one of the simplest things you can do, and buying the stuff fresh isn't much more money than this sad looking packet. So why is this a thing? Well, the packaging states that they can be a "quick and easy meal solution", but if an ambient temperature corn on the cob is your idea of a hearty meal then I feel sorry for you. You can heat these up, there are instructions included, but doesn't that then negate the point of having it pre-cooked in the first place? 

Well, enough about why it exists, let's move onto the taste, which is terrible. Ever so slightly salty, ever so slightly sweet, but otherwise devoid of flavour and disappointingly watery. I pity the lovely corn who grew so promisingly in the fields, only to be snatched up in their prime and reduced to this.

My rating: 1/5
