17 Tins of Corn. 1 Winner
17 types of tinned corn in a Buenos Aires supermarket. I will test each one to declare a winner.

In Buenos Aires there is no real concept of political correctness, they just say it like they see it and claim no offence intended. So, if a local supermarket is run by people with Asian origins, it's known as "el chino". Every couple of blocks there is a "chino". Mine is literally 30m from my front door, and I'm in my local one pretty much every day buying stuff.

I often buy tinned sweetcorn, I use it a lot in cooking and salads and stuff. I like it. The other day I noticed that my local chino had rather a lot of different varieties of corn. I counted them. 17 different types of tinned corn. This needed investigation. How could they be differentiated? Surely all corn is born equal?

Over the next few weeks I intend to investigate this baffling level of variety and ultimately crown one lucky tin as the WINNER OF THE CORNWARS!

silly, and will make a fun read for a defined period of time.

Open it to the world, man, and get people to send you their countries. This could go on forever!

Country's. As in send them from other places. Damn typos.

I loathe tinned corn - but will support any ridiculous food project.

Remember to do one on pizza just like they do here in Japan. *sigh*

Better you than me, but I'll be watching to see which one wins.
