Tocinito Bacorns

Tocinito Bacorns

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.
