Why I love Thrive Life corn for my 72-hour kit

I eat this stuff by the handful. Literally. It’s a great snack, just dry right out of the can!  Fresh, with just the perfect amount of airy crunch.  It’s one of my favorite snacks!


And bonus, it comes it a Snackies pouch, too!



In fact, I love the freeze dried corn so much that it made the cut for my top 12 items I keep in my food storage.

  • Chicken pot pie
  • Reconstitute it and have it with dinner

Melanie's Notes on Sweet Corn:

This is seriously the best corn I’ve ever had. 

Perfect crispness and sweetness and all the things. 

1 ingredient: CORN. 


I dare you to cook it with dinner without eating at least 5 handfuls in the process.

This stays fresh for a long time after opening, so I get this in the #10 cans. We go through it well before it would go bad or get soft.


This is what I chose for my ONE snack to put in my 72-hour kit.  It is THAT GOOD!
