I’m taking some liberties with the name. Primarily because Iowa doesn’t have deserts.
There’s such a thing as a corn desert, caused by birds fattening up to fly south; and Iowa has lots of corn; but you’d think a dessert named after that might have corn of some kind in it, wouldn’t you? Or is that just me?
From the box of D.W. from Cedar Falls, Iowa.
