I just now noticed that “analysis” could be thought of as having a prefix. Anyway, the ears on the left are from the Whole Foods Coop and the ones on the right are from the guy in the Pizza Hut parking lot on Central Entrance.
Co-op price was .99 each (or .89 with my membership). Pizza Hut price was $6/doz or .50 each.
A random co-op ear was 35 corns high and 18 corns around at the base and thus I approximate it as having 630 corns at $0.0014 per corn.
Pizza Hut Guy corn was 33 corns tall and 13 corns around at base. That’s 429 corns and $.0012 per corn. Still cheaper, but if I had a little more patience, I might count around the middle next time.
The co-op corn’s white appearance is outside of my childhood memories of what corn should look like, but it did yellow up after boiling.
They were both delicious, however, I found the co-op cob superior. It was fresher and juicier. Co-op corn also offered a better audio experience as the kernels popped when bitten into.
