Shark Tank is a reality TV show in which American billionaires “continue their search to invest in the best businesses and products that America has to offer,” ABC’s website says.

Off The Cob offers “a healthier tortilla chip made from fresh picked sweet corn,” according to Shark Tank.

“Founder Cameron Sheldrake was raised growing sweet corn on Early Bird Farm in Ithaca NY,” a  statement from Off The Cob said. “His passion for fresh picked sweet corn drove him to start this company at just 22. 2 years later and we are really beginning to pick up steam.”

Mark Cuban, owner of AXS TV and the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks, will be one of the investors evaluating Off The Cob.

A viewing party will be held next Friday at Cinemapolis. Admission is free, but it’s recommended that you buy a bag of chips from the concession stand.

“We make the first tortilla chips with REAL sweet corn, giving our chips a sweet and crispy taste you cant find in any other chip,” a press release from Off The Cob says. “Our chips are also Non-Gmo, Organic, Kosher, and Vegan.”
