  1. Good quality

    by Clara on 01 Tue,2017


    I've been using this brand of polenta/grits for over 3 years. Product has never let me down. I make savory grits. I store this refrigerated in a large jar.

  2. My first time, GREAT taste, easy to make!

    by Betsey on 01 Mon,2017


    I made polenta using the recipe on the back, they were outstanding. I needed to add a little milk to get to the 30 minute mark as they thickened quickly, served with Shrimp on top, it was better than restaurant grits or polenta IMHO. Smooth and creamy, toasted the leftovers and served with eggs for breakfast. Thanks for a great product and I agree, NO ZIPLOCKS needed, they just get jammed by the cornmeal and fail anyway, use a jar.

  3. No ziplock

    by MG on 07 Wed,2016


    So grateful for non-GMO and please no need zip lock bag. Keep the price low and you can put it in a jar or your own zip lock bag.

  4. kids have loved their 'corn meal mush.' Healthful and delicious.

    by Veritasamo on 01 Sat,2016


    I've been buying these corn grits for years and my children grew up eating and loving their 'corn meal mush'. I've always added one or two eggs when the grits have cooked enough (whisking them in quickly) and it makes it more like a smooth, rich pudding. Add butter, milk, and brown sugar and my grown kids still devour it. I like the grits more with parmesan or cheddar cheese and lots of pepper. Delicious! The corn grits have been hard to find lately in my area, so I'm ordering it online now. I never want to run out.

  5. Buon Appetito!

    by Jeanne on 07 Fri,2015


    Really delicious as polenta. Cooked properly, it rivals any of the 'Made In Italy' polentas on the shelves. Thanks!

  6. Pour it in a jar

    by Sam on 09 Fri,2014

    Hi, I have been using Bob's grits for quite some time. They are wonderful. They taste great, are GMO-free, and make a great addition to a gluten free diet. I want to please ask that those of you that are requesting zip top packaging to stop. That will raise the prices of our grits and food prices are already going through the roof. Please, pour your unused grits into a canning jar or other recycled glass jar (like spaghetti sauce or coconut oil), place a lid on it and you are done! If you would like, place it in a plastic storage bin. You can also cut the label and put it into the jar/plastic container to help remember cooking instructions. Thank you.

  7. No GMO's in Bob's Corn Grits

    by Jamac on 07 Thu,2014

    To the reviewer who was concerned about GMO's - go to the FAQs and you will find the following:

    Are your products genetically modified?

    No. All of our products originate from identity-preserved, non-GMO seeds. This means that the seed planted in the ground is non-GMO. We do not guarantee the complete absence of GMO materials in our products because of wind drift, pollinators and our lack of testing equipment.

  8. Ingredient list rarity

    by Randy O. on 12 Sat,2011

    I love the ingredient list on the side of the package of this product. It's one word long: "corn." That's it. A real rarity for any packaged product.

  9. Grits... they're not just for breakfast!

    by hockeygirl on 09 Thu,2011

    One of my all time favorite meals to make is "Shrimp and Grits" and wow.. are these ever delicious for making that dish! Since it's a hearty, savory meal, I cook them in chicken broth and just as they're finished, I stir in some sharp cheddar cheese. I am crazy about these grits! PS~ Someone mentioned that they wished the grits came in a zip-type pouch. I store mine in a glass jar large enough for an entire bag. I clip the label & cooking directions off of the bag they came in, and using a large clear sturdy tape, I seal (almost laminate) the bag's label & directions to the outside of the jar. Works great! :0)

  10. Last Man Standing

    by Henry Thoreau on 02 Mon,2011

    I have been reading the reviews, and I'm either too old or too Southern to relate.

    Grits has always been yellow. Always. In the south, the real south- grits are yellow. The white stuff just doesn't taste the same and isn't as healthy.

    The problem is about 10-20 years ago the major quaker companies decided to stop making normal yellow grits(aka non-bleached corn). They are yankee companies. And people in the south were po'd. Still are until now. I can't tell you how many people I hear from that say they miss real grits. Grown men and women just out of the blue in a restaurant mention it. It's part of the heritage gone.

    But now there is finally an option! You can't find yellow southern grits anywhere but here and some other private mills. And I appreciate it. You call it polenta. I call it grits. Always been and always will be. Thank you folks at Bob's.

    I love this stuff found it looking for Gluten free products......however.....please change the packaging to a zip lock type bag.


  12. Great for Breakfast

    by Barbella on 10 Sat,2010

    I love the coloration better than the white bleached grits. The presentation is wonderful!Great Southern breakfast side.|Then I also serve the polenta in the Middle-Eastern and Italian dishes.

  13. Wow Grits that aren't white who knew

    by Marty on 09 Thu,2010

    Growing up we eat grits a few time a month. I had always enjoyed them as a breakfast food but discovered later in life that they made a great combo with fried fish. I always thought that grits were white in color because thats all I knew. My brother in law turned me on to your products and seeing your polenta product in yellow I had to try them.I love them and in conversation with my father he let me know that as a child grits were yellow in color they come from corn he said. The long and short of it for me is that yours is more flavorful that most products on the market and I enjoy eating you product.

    Great find in my book.

  14. Product is a must have in pantry

    by Smiley the Cook on 08 Thu,2010

    When I first bought this product I was unsure on the taste. What a surprise! I made them with milk and they turned out rich and creamy. My kids love them and prefer corn grits over the other. A definite keeper in my house!

  15. If Nonna only knew!

    by Tony in Michiga on 08 Mon,2010

    If I had only found Bob's Red Mill polen||ta while my Italian grandmother was still with us. The taste and texture is light years ahead of anything I've had before. My favorite is wedges of day old polenta, fried up with a nice hunk of creamy gorgonzola cheese melted over the top.!

  17. My Nonna, my Mom and my ...

    by ItalianGirl on 01 Sat,2010

    My Nonna, my Mom and my Aunt won't use anything but this cornmeal for polenta dinners. I have to admit, it makes a superior soft or hard polenta.
