End of Summer Sweet Corn

I was in the grocery store of the weekend and noticed this sign at the Sweet Corn display…


I’m sure they mean it’s Yellow and White corn, but somewhere somebody probably has the copyright on Peaches & Cream description….so instead, this corn was labeled Bi-Color Sweet Corn.

I was kind of hoping to see blue & orange colored kernels when I shucked this corn after bringing it home, but alas, it was just Yellow and White.  Not Peaches & Cream mind you.. it was Bi-Color… I guess it could have been worse.. at least it wasn’t Bi-Polar corn…. (No offense to my bi-polar friends out there).

The produce manager did tell me that this corn came from Missouri….
