"canned" corn

The other day I found this "canned" corn.

Dunno which is better for the environment, canned or this type of "canned".

At 98 yen for 380 grams, I think this version is nice on the pocket.

I've seen beans in these boxes, but this was the first time seeing corn.

Are "canned" items cheaper where you live?

Yep, it's much cheaper, but I prefer frozen for everything. Frozen is only marginally more expensive, maybe .30 more. Canned veg has an odd odor in my opinion.

Good question know, other than Spam and some tomato products, I don't buy canned or frozen very much nowdays....tho' now you got me curious.

K said...

Interesting! It doesn't seem like it from what I can see- but is this package resealable?

K and S said...

I know what you mean, H, some canned items do have an odor.

good for you for buying fresh, Kirk!

not resealable, K, though you could fold it down a bit if you had to.

Take care everyone.

Hm, I've never paid attention to the price of canned corn. But I thought Japanese packaging words are pretty funny... はじける贅沢... LOL! Very interesting expression, isn't it? Or did I become so Americanized?!

K and S said...

lol you are funny, Nami :)

Take care.

Is that packaging like tetrapak stuff? Tetrapak gets recycled here, but you won't find corn in those things, mostly milk or cooking cream.

Canned corn is pretty cheap (I always check the weekly sales) and usually comes in a 3 pack. Rarely do I see frozen corn (loose kernels or cobs).

K and S said...

yup I think it is tetrapak stuff, Rowena. Too bad ours doesn't get recycled.

Take care.
