    I bought some at a local grocery store the other day.
    I had never heard of it before.
    It was quite tasty.

    If you like to play with your food I guess chess pie would be fitting. You might even be able to make some brilliant food combinations with it.

    Not sure how it got the name chess, though.

    From wikipedia. I didn't realize you can use coffee to offset sweet foods.

    "Chess pie is a particularly sugary dessert characteristic of Southern U.S. cuisine. Recipes vary, but are generally similar in that they call for the preparation of a single crust and a filling composed of eggs, butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. What sets chess pie apart from many other custard pies is the substitution of corn meal for flour. Some recipes also call for corn syrup, which tends to create a more gelatinous consistency. The pie is then baked. The result is very sweet and is often consumed with coffee to offset this."

    Coffee is great with sweet foods. Eat something rich with your cup of coffee. Or like, coffee and doughnuts. The sugar compliments the bitterness in coffee. I really like coffee. There is always good information here in the chess forum? LOL
