Picked these up at the local bodega mostly based on the name. Bacorns = bacon + corn. Pretty clever right? Beyond the name, I’d rank Bacorns as a solid, enjoyable snack – even though it doesn’t knock your socks off.
The bacon flavor is light and almost subtle while the corn puff flavor is out in front – almost like jumbo sized Kix. I almost credit Tocinito on their conservative use of bacon flavoring. So many foods are “extreme!” and the “more bacon!” craze is tiresome to me. A light and easy bacon treat is sort of refreshing. These puffs are also light in weight and texture. The packaging is pretty good too. A nice big bag with volume to make up for all of the air puffed into each Bacorn – but the bag still adequately sized to carry as a single serving.
