The National Corn Growers Association was not happy about the dig.
"This attack especially hits home at a time when farmers are hurting due to challenging economic conditions. We're also proud that none of our products include any high fructose corn syrup while a number of Anheuser-Busch products do".
"I am not angry, just disappointed", said Brian Duncan, vice president of the Illinois Farm Bureau of the Bud Light ad.

Such a step likely would prompt a court challenge from Democrats. "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that", he said. Under the US Constitution, Congress holds the national purse strings and approves major expenditures of taxpayer funds.
Donald Trump Jr. wasn't impressed with billionaire Jeff Bezos' estimated $10 million Super Bowl ad for The Washington Post. "It's the fact that Bud Light insinuates that Corn is ... bad when in fact it isn't". Both Miller and Coors use it in their beers, while Bud Light uses rice.
Meanwhile, Chief Communications Officer Peter Marino pointed out that, with or without corn syrup, Bud Light is no health drink. Corn syrup is an low-cost alternative to sugar that has been associated with obesity, diabetes and other ailments. "You forgot two things though".
One commercial touting Anheuser-Busch InBev's commitment to renewable energy generated buzz among Iowa's wind energy advocates, while another ad bashing corn syrup got in the ear of Iowa's corn industry. "The yeasts are going to eat it up and leave alcohol and Carbon dioxide in its place". The cast then moves the cask to castles that are supposedly overseen by Coors and Miller.
Corn syrup is a sweetener used in place of sugar in a wide range of processed foods and beverages, but there is a difference between regular corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is also widely used in processed foods and beverages.
