Huitlacoche, aka corn smut

Has anyone ever tried huitlacoche, also known as corn smut? When I lived in SoCal, I had heard of it but never was able to try it. Though I think I saw it once in a can. Now living in the midwest...corn country...I was wondering if it ever becomes available. I thought it was considered a delicacy like truffles.
