Light crunchy texture of corn puffs, rolled in coconut butter, and baked with a range of natural ingredients to deliver three moreish flavours.

It’s exciting times at Brookfarm, with the launch in September of a new all-natural snack.

Pam Brook has been busy in the family kitchen again creating Puffcorn; imagine the light crunchy texture of corn puffs, rolled in coconut butter, and baked with a range of natural ingredients to deliver three moreish flavours: Sea Salty, Sweet & Salty and Spicy & Salty. 

Pam uses sea salt and coconut butter in all three varieties then adds maple and hazelnut butter in the Sweet & Salty variety, and ancho chilli and kashmiri chilli in the Spicy & Salty variety – there is something for everyone, a snack the entire family can enjoy.

Featuring artwork by Rachel Urquhart, Brookfarm’s PuffCorn packaging highlights three of Byron’s most iconic surf breaks: The Wreck, The Pass, and Wategos.

Brookfarm’s Chief Nut, Will Brook, who now runs the family business, is excited to launch the new range, maintaining Brookfarm’s ‘high quality premium ingredients’ approach to snacking.

‘The best part about creating PuffCorn was standing around in mum and dad’s kitchen on the farm and doing the taste tests,’ said Will.

‘My entire family got involved, as did dozens of our Brookfarm crew, until we achieved the perfect balance of natural flavours. I mean – you have to make real sacrifices to achieve the perfect snack!’

Will’s children, Eva and Noah, taste-tested the snackability and suitability of PuffCorn for their school lunchboxes, and it was a double thumbs up!

‘We’ve had a range of children snacking on the PuffCorn and the feedback has been super positive,’ he said.

‘Making food the entire family can enjoy has always been a focus for Brookfarm, and if my kids are anything to go by, then PuffCorn should be pretty popular for all ages.

‘We love everything about this snack; from the stunning surf art that highlights our magic Byron surf breaks, to the velvet texture aftertaste of the coconut butter rolled in a selection of natural ingredients. PuffCorn is very Brookfarm – and we can’t wait to share it with the world. Made from Australian non GMO golden corn, Brookfarm’s PuffCorn is naturally gluten-free, great for vegans and vegetarians and made with absolutely no preservatives or additives. Baked in Byron Bay, Australia, they are inspired by the eclectic mix of youth and families who visit our town, work in our community, surf our breaks, chill on our beaches, and who care for our environment. Brookfarm’s PuffCorn varieties are a celebration of the good times. They are to be snacked on with friends, packed in school lunches (in reusable containers of course), taken to parties, or enjoyed at home on movie nights or with a quiet sundowner.’
