You might think that everything in the culinary world has been figured out by now. That’s where you’re quite wrong. Some things continue to mystify me. But, maybe you can help me figure them out. And, I’ll be happy to help with mysteries you might have. I’ll kick things off. Why is there canned creamed corn? I understand that creamed corn is a Southern favorite. But, the canned variety is an abomination. At the supermarket I frequent, they have unsold merchandise at a discount, and I always see canned cream corn, so I know I’m not alone here. Why is American cheese so popular? Okay...it’s creamy when melted, but it’s also virtually flavorless. And, it’s technically not even cheese! Have we (Americans) been so indoctrinated with bland fast food that we just keep on buying it as adults?
