Corny Foods - by Curt Tomasevicz


As many people celebrate this holiday season, food becomes the focus of a lot of social gatherings. Thanksgiving is, of course, centered around the meal as well as Christmas dinner. But there are also Christmas parties that include snacks and finger foods. This time of year people’s ovens are busy baking pies, cakes, and cookies.

Since I started working with the Nebraska Corn Board, a lot of my bobsled teammates ask me how much I know about corn. So, since this is the season for food, in Forrest Gump shrimping style, here is my corny list of corn-related foods…
  1. Sweet corn
  2. Creamed corn
  3. Yellow corn
  4. White corn
  5. Corn bread
  6. Candy corn (still counts)
  7. Corn on the cob
  8. Field corn
  9. Seed corn
  10. Acorn (a food, maybe not corn related)
  11. Grilled corn
  12. Boiled corn
  13. Corn Flakes
  14. Corn Pops
  15. Indian corn
  16. Corn sugar
  17. Corn syrup
  18. Corn meal
  19. Popcorn
  20. Corn casserole
  21. Corn dogs
  22. Cornish Hen (not sure how corn relates)
