The results of a week long Olathe Sweet Corn survey have been compiled and here’s what it revealed about Grand Junction’s corn on the cob preferences.

The survey questions asked people how they cook, top and eat Olathe Sweet corn.

Two of the questions, cooking, and eating gave respondents popular choices. The third question about toppings was open to any response.
