Frozen Corn

This Thanksgiving I want everyone to be thankful for Frozen Corn.

Frozen Corn is EXTREMELY hard / near IMPOSSIBLE to find in Hamburg.

I seriously check for it every time I go into a grocery store. It's never there! It doesn't even have an empty spot where it should be, they just don't carry it.

This seems so stupid to me. They have every other kind of vegetable frozen... except for corn.

I know my mom is thinking right now, "They must have frozen corn." :)

...and I guess they do have it... or they did. Once. ...but I've never seen it since. Paul found it once and he filled a freezer drawer with it.

If I ever find it again I will buy it ALL, and I will do so without any regard for others who also want frozen corn. You all remember the "Dorito Incident"?

At first I thought I just had not found the special frozen corn grocery store. Just like any poor ex-pat, I know the sad reality of having to go to five different stores to get: rice krispies, hot dog buns, cheddar cheese, marshmallows, and sweet potatoes. (Which isn't that odd of a shopping list...)

I hadn't put too much effort into the corn until now. Now that I am aware of how silly-hard it is to find frozen corn, it's become my habit upon entering any grocery store. Pay one euro for cart, buy 12 liters of milk, look for frozen corn... sad, but true

I have two bags of frozen corn left from when Paul hit the Corn Jackpot a few months back. So no worries, this Thanksgiving we can eat corn. Phew!

I did fill a section of my freezer with turkeys though, because I know that soon enought they will be as elusive as frozen corn is...

No frozen corn in Amaterdam either! We suffered without for over a year. Thankfully they have it in Luxembourg!! Hhhmmm...how can I ship it to you??

OH. In Sweden we do have frozen corn. Promise. Maybe the moms from Århus can bring some...
Strange. But for a stupid Swede. Why doesn't Green Giant Corn in a can works?

All the 'cup of corn' sellers have it! :)

Ingrid, canned corn tastes different. I don't mind it, but it's just not as yummy.

KP, I'll have to come visit in the winter and transport frozen corn to my house on the roof of our car. :)

Hi Tara.

I just came across frozen corn at Netto. Not sure if you have any Netto stores in Hamburg, but thought of you when I came across them. I broke down and bought some for our belated Thanksgiving turkey feast tomorrow.
