Sweet corn is far from being the new kid in school. In almost every country besides the United States, corn is called maize. It goes back to around 9,000 BC, and it’s believed to have come originally from Mexico.  Biting into a perfectly cooked corn on the cob really solidifies that summer feeling.

Versatility Corn is very versatile because when you remove the kernels from the cob it is a delicious movie treat, dessert, side dish,salad and more!

How to Celebrate? If the parade is a corny overload for you, try sharing your pictures of your favorite corn foods on social media. Trust me, there are many corn lovers out there so share your corn recipes to the world and don’t forget to tag your corny pictures with #NationalCornOnTheCobDay.
