I've eaten grits! Its like porridge but made with fine grain (maybe a bit like a breakfast version of ...damn...what's that white grainy stuff that used to be used for puddings...mind totally gone... I know...sago) and eaten with syrup. Possibly its even more tasteless than porridge.

I had it at a hotel in Atlanta.
