I learned something new at the grocery store.

Yesterday Dale and I made a trip to our local grocery store and when we were in the produce section we saw a sing saying 4 ears of corn for a 1.00. We love fresh corn on the cob so we proceeded to buy some. We then noticed that there were 3 signs over 3 sections of corn they were all boasting 4 for a $1.00. The first Singh said Yellow corn 4 for a dollar. The second Singh said white corn 4 for a $1.00 and the third sings said Bi colored corn 4 for a Dollar. Me and Dale just looked at each other and smiled who what of thunk Bicolor corn. Seriously I had never heard of it . Curiosity got the best of me so I had to peel the corn husk down to see what bi-colored corn looked like. I did not know what i expected to see . I do have to say I was a little disappointed when I realised all that bi-colored corn is white and yellow corn mixed, wich makes since . I just thout it would be something else. Yes I m a big dork but thats why you all love me..
So seriously am I the only on that never heard of bi-colored corn. I new that white and yellow corn existed together on the same cob I just have never heard it called bi-colored corn before.

I've never heard of bi-colored corn but growing up we called the bi-colored corn salt and peper corn. But any way you say it, it's still delicious!
