You’ve Been Eating Corn on the Cob All Wrong


BY Michele Debczak, Mental Floss

Corn on the cob is a staple at most American backyard barbecues. But the way we consume it leaves much room for improvement, according to a recent viral Tweet. As Buzzfeed reports, a Twitter user from Japan has revealed an alternative way to eat corn that leaves less of it on the cob and in your teeth.

He claims to have discovered the hack after moving to Hokkaido. There, corn lovers apparently remove each kernel from the cob by hand. To follow their example, you start by cooking an ear of corn and digging out the kernels from one row with your fingers. After the messy part is over, you have room to break off entire lines of corn at once by laying your thumb on a row and bending it towards the empty space.


This method requires a bit more effort than simply eating corn off the cob with your teeth, but if you want to make the most of your meal it’s well worth it. Here’s what a cob looks like when all the corn has been picked off the Hokkaido way.
