Review of Green Giant Steamers Corn & Butter Sauce

by StevenHelmer

I ended up making this as part of our family dinner last night. Read to find out what I thought of it.

Product Description: Frozen corn in a butter sauce from the Green Giant Steamers brand that is prepared, in the bag, in your microwave. My wife purchased two bags of this product at one of our local grocery stores a couple weeks ago and I ended up preparing one of the bags last night as part of our family dinner.


I came across a good deal on pork steaks yesterday morning and decided to buy them and make them in our crock pot so we could have them for dinner last night. However, I still needed some side dishes to go with the pork steaks, including a vegetable and, after some consideration, I decided to make this product.

My wife purchased the Green Giant Steamers Corn & Butter Sauce a couple weeks ago while out shopping for some other items. Her decision was based on the fact this was on sale and it is a vegetable most of us do enjoy eating (we always try to find ways to avoid dinner-time confrontations over food choices). And, after having it last night, I do think it was a good choice.

I ended up preparing this, as per the instructions on the bag, in my microwave. This is something I did find I liked about this product because it was very convenient and left me free to finish up my pork steaks and make the macaroni and cheese I had also picked out as a side dish. In total, it took about 4 minutes to make and, since we scooped the corn right out of the bag, I didn't even need to dirty an extra dish.

The corn itself was very pleasant. Even though it had been frozen, it did taste relatively fresh. I also found I enjoyed the butter sauce. There was enough of it to give the corn some extra flavor but, at the same time, Green Giant didn't go overboard with it and, because of that, we could still taste the actual corn too.

In fact, this was something everyone enjoyed and we had very little of this leftover as a result of that. And that, with my family, is a rare thing.

Final Opinion

This product, in addition to other things, was relatively affordable and that, combined with the convenience and taste, instantly made it one of my favorite side dish choices. I have every intention of buying this product again in the future.

We have used steamer bags and they are convenient. The butter sauce is not on my current diet, so I have to select a less seasoned product. My diet was my doctor's idea, not mine..

Corn in a butter sauce is so yummy. I'm always surprised at how you can find such a diversity of products over there! We have nothing like this product here.
