Cobra Corn Review & Giveaway **Closed**

I ran across a whole new popcorn snack from Cobra Corn, which is an Indian spicy popcorn! And wow, you better have some water or something handy because these pieces of popcorn will set your mouth on fire! And I kid you not, because even hubby had a hard time getting much of it down!

But we had some friends over and they put hot sauce even on their eggs in the mornings, so I knew if anyone could be a good judge of hot spicy foods, it would be them. They said it was awesome and that they had never tasted anything quite like it and wanted to know how to get more of it and so I gave them the website address to order their own bags of the Cobra Corn.

Here are some of the benefits of Cobra Corn:

•No artificial flavors or colors
•No preservatives
•No MSG or maltodextrin
•No Cholesterol
•Good source of fiber
•0g Trans Fat per serving
•Popcorn is a gluten-free food
Cobra Corn is popcorn seasoned with a one-of-a-kind flavor, Mumbai Masala. A unique blend of 10 Indian spices & seasonings that will make your mouth water! And I mean it both ways, too! It is pretty hot so if you have can't eat really spicey foods then this won't be for you. I let my best friend's eat it for me because once I took that one first bite, I knew I would not be able to eat it.

But, I knew some friends who love spicy hot food and sure enough, they loved it! So, while it may not be for everyone, there are alot of you out there that really enjoy spicy food, this snack will be right up your alley.

I used to could eat spicy food along with hot food for a long time when I was younger and the older I got it just did not like me so I have to be careful of that. But, I found a way to still do a review if something turns out to be hotter than I anticipated, I will get hubby or my friend to eat it for me so that my reviews are always positive.

This popcorn is in no way a bad popcorn just because I couldn't eat it. For those who love spicy foods and do not have a problem with the Indian spices, then you will love this popcorn, just like my friends did. They actually raved about the spicy flavor and said it was one of the most unusual they have ever tasted.

I grabbed this off of their About Us section:
The Cobra Corn recipe was invented by Dr. Teju Shah in Lexington, Massachusetts. Teju is a dedicated doctor, mother of four, and extraordinary cook! She was born and raised in India and moved to the United States in 1964. Today, the Cobra Corn – Mumbai Masala recipe is the foundation for Dishoom Foods, a company founded by her son, Mihir Shah.

Growing up, Mihir was (and still is) quite the perfectionist when it comes to food. He also wanted to eat American food all the time to fit in. That no doubt gave a lot of challenges to his Mom. During his senior year of high school, he came home and the house was filled with an amazing aroma. He walked into the kitchen and there was a pan filled with seasoned popcorn on the stove. He took a bite and was instantly hooked. And so Cobra Corn was born.

Ever since then, Mihir’s Mom regularly made Cobra Corn and sent it to him at college where his buddies also got hooked. On some days Mihir would return to his room to find that his roommate picked up his packages so that all of his friends could start chowing down on the savory popcorn!

In each of the different cities he lived, worked and studied, the popcorn was sent to him and more and more people got hooked. He was then encouraged to share this new and delicious popcorn with the world.
