What is "Sweet Corn"?

Chowdahhead | May 29, 2006 01:12 AM

I notice that most out-of-towners add the word "sweet" to run-of-the-mill, everyday, canned corn. What is this to distinguish it from? Corn is corn. Indian corn, popcorn, candy corn, creamed corn, etc. need adjectives, but the default is obvious to us here.

For the rest of you, what does "corn" refer to in the absense of the word "sweet"?
