A single corn flake just sold on eBay for $1,350. Obviously, it's no ordinary flake. It's shaped like the state of Illinois.

Two sisters from Virginia put it up for sale.

The winning bidder is the owner of a trivia Web site who apparently wants to add American pop culture to his traveling museum.

The sale has inspired copy cats. Now, eBay also has a corn flake shaped like Florida and a potato chip shaped like Hawaii.
