Sale Quicos Giant Corn Nuts by Crit d’Or
  • Similar to corn nuts, but much bigger and lighter
  • Popular Spanish snack
  • Lightly fried and remarkably crunchy
  • Great with beer or soda
  • Size - 2.2 lbs/1 kilo

Crunch and munch on these golden brown nuggets during the big game or with a cold drink. Similar to corn nuts, this popular Spanish snack differs thanks to the lighter and larger corn kernels, some nearly an inch across. We find it impossible to resist more handfuls of these incredibly crunchy kernels whenever they are around!

The raw corn used by Crit d’Or is imported to Spain exclusively from Peru, known as the only source for this variety of over-sized giant kernels! And the size is the key - there are no hard little corn nuts here, just giant, light and crunchy kernels.

The kernels are soaked in water before they are fried in oil and sprinkled with the just the right dose of salt. The result is an addictively delicious, crunchy, salty snack.

When La Tienda discovered Crit d’Or, we were immediately smitten with the company and the product. In fact, our team polished off a 5-pound bag of their Quicos in one day — quite a testament to these tasty morsels! Crit d’Or is a family-owned company in Barcelona managed by a father-daughter team. They specialize in premium nuts, producing them in small quantities using finely honed artisan methods and all natural ingredients.

Whether you load these Quicos in decorative appetizer bowls for movie or game night; nosh on them with you favorite cold brew; or parcel them for lunchbox treats, we are certain these alluring munchies will become a “must have” in your snack repertoire.


Corn kernels, palm oil and salt.
