Naturally Bred Delicious Amaize Sweet Corn Available at Exclusive Retailers Nationwide

CALDWELL, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Amaize Sweet Corn is now available for a limited time. This delicious rare variety of sweet non-GMO white corn is a popular summer treat. Amaize fans rave about its amazing taste and crunch, claiming it is unmatched by any other variety of corn. Using traditional non-GMO breeding methods, George Crookham and Bruce Hobdey perfected naturally delicious Amaize corn after 22 years and 10,000 variations of testing.

George Crookham and Bruce Hobdey sought to perfect the taste and texture of Amaize Sweet Corn beginning in 1989 after discovering a type of corn with a crunch and a pop that differentiated itself from the textures of other corns, which tended to get too soft when cooked.

"Amaize is my life's work. I have tasted literally over 50,000 ears of corn over 40 years and together with my breeding partner, Bruce Hobdey, pursued an insatiable quest for sweet corn perfection! Amaize is hands-down the best sweet corn ever. And now, we want to share our discovery with the rest of the world," said George Crookham, CEO of Crookham Company.

Amaize Sweet Corn is available for a limited time during the summer months and is sold exclusively in select stores and market areas including Indianapolis, Houston, Des Moines, Buffalo, Spokane and Toronto, Canada. Find out more about Amaize Sweet Corn at www.AmaizeSweetCorn.com.
