Description
Same idea as combos, but I beleive they were around before them. They were a corn based shell with picante or a spicy cheese filling.

I remember them because you could suck out the cheese filling easily. I remember the commercial in which a spanish (? CON-KEY-STA-DOR ) was aboard a plane and was sharing the Cornquestos with other passengers.

Thank you :) I wish they'd start making them again too!! We should write Mars Company and ask them to!!

Right Chris, that's what I remember about them. You could suck out the filling, and it had an overpowering taste. Combos are similar but you have to break them to get the filling out, and it doesn't taste nearly as good. And I'm not old enough to have lost any taste buds yet, so I can make a fair comparison. These and the Willy Wonka "Oompas" (the old-style, peanut butter and chocolate ones) were my favorite snacks.
