Dear Corn Kid, we also really really really like corn.

In this week’s edition of, “The Cutest Thing We Saw on the Internet,” we’re taking some time to offer up an ode to Corn Kid.

Yes, Corn Kid, the beloved YouTube and TikTok sensation who just. loves. corn! It is, after all, “a big lump with knobs” that “has the juice.” And when you add butter, “everything” changes.

“I can’t imagine a more beautiful thing,” says Corn Kid, who also believes “everyone has to try it.”

We agree.

To get you started, we rounded up some of our favorite corn recipes, from a quick and easy avocado salad to grilled Korean cheesy corn and grains. We’ve got variations on elote and Israeli-style grilled corn—even corn ribs and tofu—all of them are sure to make you do Corn Kid’s signature dance alongside your “corn friends.”

And for a delicious twist, we’ve also included a few new masa recipes straight from Jorge Gaviria, the founder of Masienda, a purveyor of masa and masa harina for restaurants across the West and beyond.

Here’s to corn, the delightful wonder; just don’t forget to add butter!
