Ah, sweet, sweet corn! A golden treasure of the matsuri (festival) scene, there’s always plenty of cobs being cooked on a fire pit at any summer festival. Cultures around the world enjoy grilled corn, but in Japan, the special twist put on this snack is a sweet soy sauce glaze, which gives it a beautiful smoky flavor that is complementary to all the other snacks found around the festival circuit. Kongari Corn Rice Cracker captures the intensity of grilled corn and is easy enough to enjoy on the go as you walk around the matsuri grounds.
