Is It True That One Of Your Go-To Childhood Snacks Has Been Phased Out?

As the old saying goes, "You never know what you have until it's gone."

You may or may not have noticed it during your recent trip to the supermarket: a certain bag of chips has been M.I.A. for quite some time now. We're talking about good ol' Kornets.

Kornets has a distinct cone shape and corn flavor. Every millennial who grew up with this snack can plead guilty to placing a piece of Kornets in each of their fingertips and either pretend they have long, monster-like claws or they eat the pieces one by one from each finger.

In a now-viral post circulating all over Facebook, Granny Goose, the company behind Kornets and Tortillos, says that Kornets has been phased out. In a call with Universal Robina Corporation's Customer Care hotline, they confirmed this and adds that there is no ongoing production of Kornets.

If you check Granny Goose's Facebook page and the last Kornets post existing dates back to January 2018. Does that mean it's been more than two years of no Kornets in our snack stash?

As the old saying goes, "You never know what you have until it's gone."

Farewell, Kornets. You are missed.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
