4 flavors of Glad Corn, which I’d never heard of before. We had some spare time, and since I was especially curious, I thought we’d start the taste test right away. The 12-oz. bags come in original, jalapeno, BBQ, and gourmet cheddar. We started on the original. The corn tastes like a light and better-tasting Corn Nut, and has a nice feel and crunch in the mouth.

The Bar-B-Q tastes exactly as like BBQ-flavored potato chips, the cheddar was true to its name, and the jalapeno was extremely light in flavor and had a sweet and spicy flavor in one.
These little kernels are very inconsistent in size and shape due to the nature of the process the Friesens came upon quite unexpectedly. In the 1980’s, Stan Friesen was (and to this day, he still is) an alternative energy nut. Helping to develop a cheaper ethanol alternative from corn, he was once again working on an ethanol recipe in his kitchen at home using corn from their 500-acre farm, while his wife Gladys was reading her book in the bedroom. Something went “odd” in the kitchen, and Stan proceeded to present a handful of these curiously-shaped corns to Gladys. She had no interest until he said to try a little “snack.” She did, loved them, and got up for more. Just two weeks later, they created another batch and carried it to a Christmas party down the road. It was an instant hit and the group termed it Glad Corn (for Gladys). The name stuck.
Stan and Gladys harvest only soy and corn on their 500 acres and make the corn in a gluten-free facility—their own. Gladys informed me that the farms bordering hers are all soy or corn, as that’s predominately what up in their “neck of the woods.”
They offer another farm’s “bagged wheat and oat” product on their website, but Gladys ensured me they do this to help their friends and that their products do not come in contact with their corn or the manufacturer. We think quite highly of this company, the facility, and Gladys, as well as the genius behind the “mistake”—Stan.
This food company is given a thumbs up and is HIGHLY recommended by Tina Turbin, award-winning author and founder of www.GlutenFreeHelp.info.
