Green Giant, purely because it's the one I prefer to eat myself.

I rarely use all the corn I take with me, so I use a clean Tupperware box to store it, rather than any old manky bait box, and reheat what I don't use when I get home.

Garlic chicken breast in breadcrumbs, new potatoes with butter, and sweetcorn ...

I normally use the supermarket own brand one. Lately I've found the frozen version (rather than the tinned) is brighter and firmer so I use that.

I normally use frozen, but yesterday I was in tesco and bought one of their own brand tins. Nice colour, smells really sweet, tasted vile, lets hope the fish like it tomorrow.

Whatever I can find, providing it has a ring pull. I dont use a huge amount of corn, but I like to have a tin in reserve for a couple of venues I fish, and can then open on the bank on demand.

lidl golden sweetcorn for silver and winter fishing because its small and soft.
green giant for carp because its big and tough.

Asda Smartprice cuz its cheap and its what my mum gets. If you don't think its seewt enough or think the fish prefer it sweeter just add some sugar and maybe some salt because it adds to its attraction.

Supermarket own brand for the normal corn as it tends to be firmer although its not as tastey so a flavour additive doesn't go a miss. I have bought strawberry corn from the tackle box (not sure on the make) i know the corn is very red and when it works its unbeatable.

Hope this helps

Got some tins of Green Giant white corn, it`s smaller and is teardrop shaped, Roach love it. Trouble is they have stopped selling it in the UK.
Normal corn I tend to by supermarket brands.
