Same thing with corn. The past couple of years I have been very pleased with the sweet corn that Giant sells. It has been very sweet especially if you are lucky enough to be shopping when they are putting out the new ears from the crates. But this year the corn has been inconsistent and generally less sweet. Is it the dry conditions? I have tried corn from 4 different stores and even bought some a a roadside stand on the Eastern Shore. Nothing so far has been like the corn I have purchased at Giant in previous years.
At least the crabs have been good this year.
