Cornhole is the runaway leader in the tailgate lot when it comes to tailgating games. It’s popularity is unmatched. Because of this, the cornhole connoisseurs of the parking lots want to have their game be as authentic as possible. In order to make cornhole more portable, affordable and “tailgate friendly”, some quality has been compromised in order to accomplish those goals.
We recently discovered P&P Imports premium corhole bags that, look feel, weigh and toss like authentic and official Cornhole Association regulation bags but are a greater improvement. The P&P Imports Premium Cornhole Bags are filled with synthetic corn kernels which sets them apart.
According to the official rules of the American Cornhole Association, “corn bags should be made from 12 oz / sq yd duck canvas and may be any color that is easy to see during Cornhole play. Each bag shall be filled with approximately 2 cups of corn feed and finished bags should be a minimum of 6″ X 6″ square and weigh between 14 and 16 ounces.”
You may ask, “Why would synthetic corn kernels be better than natural corn kernels? Isn’t the real thing always better than something synthetic”. The answer is usually the real thing is better but not in this case. Let us explain.
Real corn kernels are a natural substance and thus susceptible to the outdoor elements. If a cornhole bag filled with natural corn kernels gets wet, the kernels inside will probably deteriorate or grow mold or mildew. Whether the bags get wet or stay dry, natural corn kernels can attract pests like maize weevils. The rotting natural corn kernels will break down and your bags will weigh less and honestly, do you really want to play with bags that have mold growing or destructive pests inside? Yuck.
In addition to avoiding the potential rot and deterioration of the fill inside the bags, these cornhole bags are top of the line in quality. The heavy duty duck cloth is the exact material official, regulation cornhole bags are made out of and are double stitched to ensure they hold together. The synthetic “corn kernels” are even shaped like a real corn kernel so the feel of the bag in your hand is replicated to feel like a cornhole bag with natural fill.
Keeping it along the same track as being a regulation sized cornhole bag, the weight is between 15 and 16 ounces. That is the regulation weight of cornhole bags per the American Cornhole Association. The size of each bag is 6″ X 6″ square. That is the regulation size of cornhole bags per the American Cornhole Association.
Seeing how the official rules regarding bags allows for any color as long as they are easily seen during game play, these cornhole bags are available in 15 different colors.
Available colors include: Black. Gold, Grey, Light Blue, Navy Blue, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, Royal Blue, White, Yellow, Crimson/Burgundy, Light Green and Dark Green.
Now you can get the two colors of your favorite team to go along with your Cornhole Boards and be a true fan in the parking lot. Oklahoma State Cowboys tailgater? Get some orange and black bags and you are all set. Minnesota Vikings fan? Purple and gold for you. The 15 color options ensures you can always mix and match your cornhole bags to match your favorite team’s colors.
We had a chance to test out the P&P Imports Premium Cornhole Bag Sets recently while tailgating. We grabbed a set of Blue and Yellow bags to match the colors of the San Diego Chargers and brought them tailgating at Qualcomm Stadium.
In playing with them, we really enjoyed the authentic feel to these bags. From the high quality duck cloth to the authentic feel of the synthetic fill feeling like corn kernels, these cornhole bags are definitely “Tailgate Approved”. The regulation weight was perfect and the peace of mind to know that even if the bags got wet, we would not have to worry about rot or even pests destroying the insides.
These Premium Cornhole Bags come in sets of four. We suggest buying two sets, one of each color of your favorite team, for a complete game set. Each set of four (4) bags is priced at $20 and comes with a one year warranty. Purchase two sets and they both will ship in the same box for a flat rate shipping cost of $15.
