If you had to assign one piece of food to represent each state, which item would you pick? For the good people at Foodiggity, the answer is whatever is punniest.

Armed with a set of state-shaped cookie cutters and a love of wordplay, the team set out to make each state out of a food. The series, called The Foodnited States of America, features all 50 states.

The project came about when Foodiggity founder Chris Durso's young son suggested they make states out of food. Durso almost dismissed the idea, until his son added, “But what if they like had funny names like New Pork or New Jerky?" Durso understood the value of a good pun and took on the task of shoving mashed potatoes into metal shapes. You can see the full collection below, or follow Foodiggity on Instagram
