There’s already at least one map of the United States done entirely in food, specifically corn. It’s part of a series of world maps that use foods commonly associated with a country or region to represent various countries and continents.
A father and son have set out to create their own food map of the U.S. with a twist. Instead of each state being represented by an associated food, the state’s names become food-related puns and are represented with a food that fit the state's name. Rhode Island becomes Rocky Road Island and South Dakota becomes South Dacocoa Puffs.
It’s clever, cute — and I bet Cameron Durso, the 9-year-old who started the project with is dad when he was 8 will always remember the shapes of his states too. Cameron’s dad, Chris Durso, is the voice behind the blog Foodiggity, and he’s been recording the progress on The Foodnited States of America map on his Instagram site.
Take a look at some of their cleverness:
