The Difference is Sweet Corn
Sweet corn is one of the great treats of summer.
Sweet corn (also called sugar corn) has a naturally high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a natural recessive mutation in the genes, which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the corn kernel.
Unlike grain corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage), sweet corn is hand picked when fresh (milk stage) and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain.
In the United States, sweet corn is often boiled or grilled and eaten right off the cob. Sweet Corn is one of the most popular vegetables, and can be found on most American dinner plates during summer months.
Sweet corn is not only delicious; it is good for you too! Naturally high in dietary fibers, protein, potassium, vitamin C, B vitamins and iron! In a recent Cornell study, researchers found that sweet corn loses vitamin C during cooking, but its antioxidant activity actually increases!
Sweet corn gives our chips a sweet, savory flavor, and crispy texture you won't find in any other chips!
One bite is like sinking your teeth into a juicy, freshly picked, grilled corn on the cob – packed with all that fresh, savory flavor, with the addition of a satisfying crunch.
These chips are great on their own or pair perfectly with any of your favorite dips!
Hi I am Cameron Sheldrake, the founder and creator of Off the Cob Chips.
I was raised in a 3rd generation business, Earlybird Farm, in the beautiful inlet valley of Ithaca NY. My childhood eating homegrown vegetables and corn, inspired a love of fresh food.
Sweet corn is my favorite and is one of the great treats of summer. Simply boiled with butter, tender ears are a delicious, and nutritious snack. Sweet corn gives our tortilla chips a lighter and sweeter, corn on the cob flavor! I launched this company to bring that amazing taste to you!
These are the most unique flavored chip I've ever had, and I mean that in a good way, they are sweet with the right amount of salty and the thickness of the chip is perfect. I would definitely buy these again!!

I don't think I'll ever be able to eat "ordinary" corn chips again. These are, by far, the BEST corn chips I've tasted! I only buy organic, non-GMO corn products. You can really taste the sweet corn, and it makes a superb difference! Give them a try - you will be SO happy you did!

I met you yesterday, Saturday, at Wegmans. I knew you had been on Shark Tank and heard how good the chips were. I bought a bag and can hardly keep from eating the whole bag. They are a wonderful snack. Thank you for making them.
