Bud Light was less-than discrete in their Super Bowl ad calling out Miller and Coors Lite for using corn syrup in their beer, and Miller Lite has something to say about it.

MillerCoors addressed the commercial in a full-page ad in the New York Times Tuesday.

The ad reads in part, "Miller Lite is indeed brewed with "corn syrup." We'd like to thank our competitors for taking the time and money to point out this exciting fact."

The brewer goes on to say that the corn syrup they use is not high-fructose corn syrup, and that it is simply part of what gives Miller Lite its flavor that they claim "has more taste than Bud Light."

Miller Lite hopes the ad will help put an end to the #corntroversy that Bud Light brought to light during Sunday's big game.
