How are Corn Nuts® Made?
Corn nuts are prepared by soaking whole corn kernels in water for three days, then deep-frying them until golden and crispy. The kernels are soaked because they shrink during the harvesting and cleaning process, and rehydration returns them to their original size.

Corn Nuts® History
Corn nuts were introduced to the United States by Albert Holloway of Oakland, California in 1936. He originally marketed them to tavern owners as a snack that could accompany beer. He called them Olin’s Brown Jug Toasted Corn, although he would later rename them to CornNuts.
Holloway eventually learned of a Peruvian breed of corn, known as Cuzco corn, which grew very large kernels. He wanted to use this type of kernel in his toasted corn snack, so his company worked to develop a hybrid of Cuzco corn that could be grown in California. In 1964, his company introduced this hybrid variety to the marketplace, under the name CornNuts. Although the Corn Nuts® we know and love today are no longer the same size as Cusco corn, they are still as undeniably good as they have ever been.Read More
