Pw 47919 Smg Corn Package 03

It should come as no surprise, now that there are individually wrapped bananas, potatoes, and eggs, that there would also be prepackaged, single-serve sweet corn. At least in Nagoya, Japan, where you can buy the husked, precooked, and ready-to-use or reheat shrink-wrapped corn at the ¥100 Store (the equivalent of a dollar store in the U.S.) for the obvious price of ¥100/USD $1.28. Wrapped and ready to go, the corn’s easy-peel shrink film is printed with a green husk and a red bow accent that add a nice finishing touch to the pleasing graphics. Every sample of corn we viewed was in impressively pristine condition.
