First up, let me tell you that polenta is yellow corn grits. Grits is a Southern thing. They are more often a breakfast food. Generally speaking, Southerners do not use grits for emotional communication. However, these grits are made for just that. From the bottom: grits to forgive (pardon), grits to tell the truth, grits for a new stage in life and finally the best one–grits to say I love you.
So, if you need to tell someone something very important today, go find yourself a bag of grits.
