Roasted corn is a popular outdoor snack in many parts of Nigeria. It can be taken with a purple African pear (or bush pear) commonly known as "Ube" in Igbo. African pears are roasted on hot coals or soaked in freshly boiled water to eat. When cooked, they taste like avocado. The combination of roasted corn and pear is known by the Yorubas as "Agbado yinyan".
