Blue Blood Corn, or abbreviated as "BB Corn" (BBコーン, BB kōn), is a giant breed of rare corn that was eaten by Gourmet Nobility as a snack long ago, hence the reason for its name "Blue Blood". According to Jiro It is one of the few rare Gourmet World ingredients to be grown successfully in the Human World.

AppearanceEdit

They mainly resemble larger than average corn plants that seem to vary in sizes, as there were some as big as normal corn, and others growing above 20 stories high.

Structure and PhysiologyEdit

BB Corn fibers and kernels.

They are all very tough, with their fibers entwined and their roots deeply rooted so that the giant birds that live nearby can't pluck them easily. It took Toriko many attempts with his Knife until he could cut a small cob. Also, when he attempted to pull it out, he felt as if trying to pull up the entire forest. The bigger corn is even tougher, as Toriko couldn't even cut its skin nor pull out its kernel, leaving him no choice but to hit the back of the corn with a 5-Hit Nail Punch forcing the kernels out. It is said that there are as many kernels as the number of strands on the corn. It is shown that the kernels grow between and underneath the initial kernels found on the corn.

Cooking MethodEdit

When cooking the corn for popcorn, the kernel must be roasted to a very high temperature. If the timing is off by even one second, the kernel burns and the taste is ruined. Cooking the kernel is a very meticulous and

delicate task and takes a day and a half to fully prepare.

If popped, there is enough popcorn for a hundred people. The popcorn itself is quite large, more like cotton candy size than actual popcorn, with a fragrant odor of roasted croquettes.

TasteEdit

BB Corn can even satisfy Terry, a Battle Wolf with refined taste buds.

The consistency is smooth and easily travels down the throat. It is so delicious that most people swallow unconsciously upon putting it into their mouths. It is delicious enough to satisfy a beast originating from Gourmet World, Terry, a Battle Wolf. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about BB corn is its incredible appetite-stimulating effect; rather than getting full, eating it causes people to feel even hungrier (Toriko noted that he could "eat them to no end") which gives the effect of making other foods even tastier. It is primarily because of this appetite-increasing effect that Toriko chose the BB Corn as his Hors d'Ouvere.

HistoryEdit

BB Corn ArcEdit

After acquiring the Jewel Meat, Terry seemed to not like any food from Human World. Toriko then made a visit to Tom, who told him about Jiro bringing some BB Corn to the Market before, and gave him the location where it's growing, the Wul Jungle. After Terry defeated the Zombie Wood, they traced the giant roots to find many small BB Corns above the trees. Each small Corn had roots connected to the whole jungle, making it hard for Toriko, who had to use multiple Knives to cut it. Terry lead Toriko to the building-sized BB Corns, and with a combined effort from Terry and Toriko's Knives and Nail Punch, they were able to cut through the husk, fibers, and finally pop the kernels out. Before taking the kernels to Wul Volcano for turning it to popcorn, Toriko noticed another distanced huge Corn cut off its roots. At the Volcano, they slowly heated the kernels, from the highly-positioned low-temperature rock and going down, to avoid burning it. Finally, the Corn popped at the lowest 1200 degrees rock, after a day and a half. Terry finally had his first meal in a long time, and Toriko added it to his Full Course Menu. Suddenly, Grinpatch showed up, and sucked all the corn they popped with his straw, and before leaving, his pet showed up, carrying the huge Corn that Toriko noticed has been cut off before. After the clash, Toriko got some Corn back to Hotel Gourmet, where everyone had a taste of Toriko's Hors d'oeuvre.

MerchandiseEdit

BB Corn has been mostly featured on snacks, such as corn chips, corn puffs, and corn bread. It has also been featured as a collectible mini-figurine and on a trading card.
