Grav says it’s good, though the kernels don’t get as firm and fluffy as what you find with regular roasted or boiled corn. The flavor is fine, thanks to the complicated batter Calico County uses. It’s buttery and it’s warm and it’s kinda neat looking, so I can’t fault them on the side.
I hear Dixie Café also offers the golden cylinders of fried-ness. There are likely others. What do you think about it?
