If the States Were Food Puns, What Would They Be?

If you like food, design, and puns that are so bad, they’re good, then you’ve come to the right place. It’s rare when something checks all three of those boxes, so I was excited when I stumbled across the map of the “Foodnited States of America”. The work of creative professional, food satirist and Foodiggity creator Chris Durso, this beautifully constructed, terribly punned photo series sprung from the artist’s fourth profession: father.

Durso wrote, “In addition to being the creator of Foodiggity.com, I’m also the father of an eight-year-old. And, when most of the material covered on your site could best be described as ‘juvenile food-related nonsense,’ a curious youngster is gonna wanna get involved.

“It began innocently enough with, ‘Dad… What if you made States, but like, they were made of food, like?’ 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.

“So, with an idea set forth by an eight year-old, and contributions from Dad and others […],” Durso, a few friends and the inventive eight-year-old behind the whole thing went to work.
