Cookie corn, anyone? For the uninitiated, this delectable treat is robust kernels all dressed up in different delicious flavors that may or may not be combinations you would think even exist.

It’s doused in a Cookie Good devised maple caramel concoction and then adorned with crumbs made from this enterprise’s ingredients named in its title. Ditto the peanut butter-candy bar cookie corn, based with a peanut butter caramel and featuring the appropriate cookie crumbs and a dash of Butterfinger bits for added zest. Can you say yum?
