Not Nut Meats Those Are Corn Puffs Think of a grain food so enticing that folks use it as confections. They do that with Puffed Grains-use them in candy-making scatter them on ice cream. And they eat them like peanuts-sometimes doused with a little melted butter. Bubbled Grain Foods The latest Puffed Grain comes from corn hearts, steam exploded-puffed to raindrop size. Sweet pellets of hominy are thus puffed to airy, toasted bubbles. Corn Puffs are vastly different from Puffed Wheat or Puffed Rice. But they are also shot from guns. Every food cell is exploded. They come to you as flimsy globules, thin and flavory-most delightful morsels. Let children enjoy them-all day long, at meal-time and between meals. They are ideal foods, easy to digest; and they taste like fairy tidbits. Puffed grains are the joy of millions in these summer days. Food Confections Buttered or salted, like peanuts or pop corn, Corn Puffs are confections. Eat them dry. Or, lightly butter and crisp them be fore adding sugar and cream, and you'll multiply the flavor.
