Osem's 'Bamba' is a peanut-flavored puffed corn snack that is extremely popular among Israelis of all ages. Purchased by approximately 90 percent of the households in Israel, this sweet and savory snack food is a national favorite.

Bamba is a puffed corn snack food with a peanut-flavored coating. The use of puffed corn gives the snack a soft, yet crisp texture that is similar to that of a cheese puff. However, the addition of peanuts gives the snack a unique sweet and savory flavor. In addition to its delicious taste, Bamba is also gluten-free, enriched with vitamins and free of any artificial food coloring or preservatives.

The nutty snack food is a staple for many Israeli consumers, demonstrating a keen interest in food products that strike a balance between sweet and savory.
