They like you to call those "crunchies." :D

I wonder about any flavor differences with corn meal instead of whole or flaked corn.

I think there is a difference. Flakes have a little less in my experience.

Once a friend asked Ron Jefferies about the differences in wheat - Raw vs flaked vs malted. He talked for close to 10 minutes about the flavors and how to use them in beers. In retrospect, I should have had a pencil and paper in my hands and not the pint of beer.

I figure it would make a difference since most cornmeal has the husk and germ removed.

There is also the cereal mash that add some cooking. Jeff Renner makes his CAP these days often with polenta cereal mashed in a pressure cooker. That gives some more flavors due to the higher temp.
