Bugles are a corn chip snack food from General Mills. They come in the following flavors: Original, Nacho Cheese, Sour Cream & Onion, Ranch, Chile Cheese, Salsa, Smokin' BBQ, Churros, Southwest Ranch, Sweet and Salty Chocolate Peanut Butter, Sweet and Salty Caramel Cheddar, Ketchup, Coriander, Hot Buffalo, and Hot & Spicy BBQ (Exclusively manufactured by Tom's). Bugles are named after the instrument that they take shape after, the bugle. However, the snack version has an unsightly seam along one side.
Bugles were test-marketed in 1965 and introduced nationally in early 1966 as one of a trio of new snacks, the other two being the flower-shaped Daisies and the tube-shaped Whistles, both now discontinued. Bugles were no longer sold in Canada in early 2010 due to a decrease in demand but brought back in November 2011 due to renewed consumer demand.
Bugles are fried in coconut oil, which contributes to their being significantly higher in saturated fat than other snack foods, which are typically fried in soybean or other vegetable oils. Original Bugles contain no hydrogenated oils, however different flavours of Bugles such as Nacho Cheese do contain hydrogenated soybean oil.
They are now also sold in the UK in barbecue and salt and vinegar flavours. General Mills also licenses the name and shape to other manufacturers of the same product. In South Korea, they are known as "Ggoggal Corn" (꼬깔콘) and have been produced by Lotte Confectionery since 1973. Similarly, in Japan, Bugles are named "Tongari Corn" have been manufactured by House Foods since 1978. In Sweden they are known as "Sombreros", made by Estrella.
Ingredients of Original Bugles: degermed yellow corn meal, coconut oil, sugar, salt, baking soda. Freshness preserved by BHT.
