Amaize sweet corn receives “Amaize’ing” review by supermarket guru

Amaize sweet corn was recently reviewed by Supermarket Guru® Phil Lempert in his Pick of the Week segment and verified as a “Hit.” Lempert exclaimed that Amaize sweet corn is “the best I have had that didn’t come right off the stalk” and “the mouthfeel of the kernels is crunchy, almost pops, and the texture sets it apart when grilling.” The full review can be seen here. 

“We are thrilled that Amaize sweet corn was selected as one of Lempert’s coveted picks of the week and that he loved our corn,” said George Crookham, CEO of Crookham Company, the breeder of Amaize sweet corn. “His credibility will definitely help us continue our efforts to educate consumers on how wonderful and unique this new corn is!” 

Amaize was discovered in 1989 by two breeders at Crookham Company, George Crookham and Bruce Hobdey. The pair began working on perfecting the taste and texture of Amaize after experiencing a type of corn with a pop and crunch that differentiated itself from the textures of other corns, which tended to get mushy when cooked. Using non-GMO breeding methods, they perfected Amaize after 22 years and 10,000 variations of testing and introduced Amaize to the public in 2011 to strong consumer enthusiasm. 

The sweet and crunchy Amaize sweet corn will be available for a limited time this summer at select retailers through September. For the full list of retail locations and recipes, visit As Lempert exclaimed, “Run…run to your supermarket before this season's crop is over.”
