The Foodnited States of America: Delicious and Punny Mashups of Food and U.S. States
What’s your home state? Somewhere out west, like Kale-ifornia? Or do you hail from an eastern state like New Jerky? Perhaps you come from the Midwest like Swiss-consin.
No matter what your state, it’s bound to be a delicious one, thanks to a father and his clever son. Creator of food culture website foodiggity.com Chris Durso and his eight-year-old son came up with “Foodnited States of America,” a fantastic collection of food puns for all 50 states.
It began innocently enough with, ‘Dad, what if you made States, but like, they were made of food?’ My response was something along the lines of, ‘That’s been done to death already, son… Go to bed.’ Then, the heir to the Foodiggity empire added, ‘But what if they like had funny names like New Pork or New Jerky, like?’ Now, we were on to something.
