Kurkure is a brand of corn puffs, developed and produced by Pepsico India. The snack is named after the Hindi word for "crunchy".
Launched in 1999, this perfect ‘namkeen’ snack, developed entirely in India, has come to be identified with fun and lovable human quirks. It developed an even stronger identity through associations with well-known Indian actors.
