    Food shaped like states could be worth a lot of money

    Two sisters from Virginia sold their Illinois-shaped corn flake on eBay Friday night for $1,350.

    Copycat items have popped up on eBay, including corn flakes shaped like Hawaii and Virginia. There's also been a potato chip shaped like Florida, and Illinois corn flake paraphernalia, including T-shirts and buttons.

    Check out the photo of the Illinois shaped corn flake at the following link:

    I told my wife this morning I was selling some peanut butter captain crunch on Ebay as being shaped like the earth.

    This thread made me think about the piece of French toast that people claimed to see the image of the Virgin Mary in it. A casino paid $28,000 for it on ebay:

    Yes...thanks for clarifying. If a piece of burnt cheese is more attractive than I am...then there is a problem.

    Re: Food shaped like states could be worth a lot of money

    i should go to walmart with a map and see how many pieces of food i can find that looks like a state then buy a box of cornflakes and dump them out on the table...

    seriously tho why would ppl pay that much for a CORNFLAKE!!!


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I have a Cheeto that is shaped like the ISU logo. The old one that is. I'm selling for $100. PM me with some bids.

    If it was the new logo, I'd buy it. But I don't want to spend $100 on an out-of-date Cheeto logo.

    I had one not too long ago. After eating it, I crapped out a Hawkeye. Go figure.
