not as garlicy as I had hoped. Kind of dry also. I think if i was to make it again i would save the garlic butter I had rolled the corn in and pour a bit over the corn before eating. also make it would help to put the garlic in a food processor to mince it instead of crushing it. this would bring out more of the garlic flavor in my opinion
