Beyoncé Shouts Out A Michigan Made Product On Cowboy Carter: Jiffy Cornbread

Beyoncé opens with her song, 'Sweet Honey Buckin’ with the following lyrics:

“Jiffy cornbread, booty cornfed
Body rolls at the rodeo
I'm coming home, ooh
Ridin' through just to put my eyes on you
You are the superstar
Everybody drivin' all-new cars
Turn a bad night to a good time
On the trail ride to the zydeco
I'm coming home”

Did you notice the Michigan connection yet?


Did you know that Jiffy cornbread is made in Michigan?

Howdy Holmes, Chelsea Milling Company president and CEO shared that Jiffy is truly Michigan through and through.

“We’re Michiganders. We try to support local."

Absolutely! But I will take it!
