Corny corn corn. Corn is my favorite. Ahhh...corn.
Last night I was talking to Nicole (my friend living in Japan) - and she was telling me all about the Japanese love of corn. Who knew I would find my flock halfway around the world. Let's examine their love of corn, shall we?
They sell corn sushi (with chunk light tuna, another favorite)
They sell corn soup in vending machines
They sell roasted corn at festivals (what self-respecting festival wouldn't?)
Heck - they even have a corn drink. It's called Calorie Mate, it comes in "Corn Taste" flavor.
Nicole sent this to me for my birthday last year. It's been sitting in my fridge. Chilling. Taunting me...waiting for me to muster up the courage to taste it. I like corn but a corny beverage in a tin can? That's just plain weird.
