Costco Shoppers Are Obsessed With This Mexican-Style Street Corn

As plant-based food grows in popularity, so do companies like Tattooed Chef. CEO Sam Galletti started the company in 2009 (known then as Itella Parent) solely as an Italian vegetable importer. In 2014, Galletti's daughter Sarah, the "Tattooed Chef," came on board as the company's creative director, lending her insights into plant-based foods, and helping the company transition from vegetable importer to branded product line (via Tattooed Chef).

Now, Tattooed Chef's easy-to-prepare plant-based products, such as its Mexican-style street corn, are flying off the shelves at Costco. And, in December 2020, the company debuted plant-based pepperoni in its Cauliflower Pizza Bowl and plant-based sausage in its Sausage Breakfast Bowl (via Tattooed Chef). Tattooed Chef grows, manufactures, and produces a full line of popular non-GMO, organic, plant-based foods, sourcing everything from Italy and California. The farm-to-table brand has become so popular that the company went public in 2020 and is planning a big marketing push in 2021 to additional retailers beyond Walmart, Target, and Sam's Club (via Yahoo).

Why Costco shoppers love Tattooed Chef Mexican-style street corn

Instagram has been buzzing about the Mexican-style Street Corn from Tattooed Chef. Instagrammer @costcobuys recently posted "I am SO EXCITED that @tattooedcheffoods Mexican style street corn is back at my Costco! I absolutely LOVE this stuff!" According to the Tattooed Chef website, this vegetarian and gluten-free corn can be prepared in a skillet or microwave. The roasted corn, which has been cut off of the cob, is coated in a sauce of sour cream, chili powder, and a dash of lime. A separate pack of cotija cheese is included for sprinkling before serving.

If you love Mexican elote, but don't want to deal with roasting the corn cobs, or the general time and labor involved in making this delicious side from scratch, the Mexican-style Street Corn from Tattooed Chef may be what you have been looking for all along. Each bag contains four individual packs and costs $10.99 at Costco (via Kids Activities Blog). Sounds like we know what we'll be having for dinner!
