Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Corporate States of America:


How about Chef Boyardee? Milton, PA opened factory in 1938 because that's where the tomatoes and mushrooms grew. What makes the Chef significant is they essentially exposed millions of Americans to Italian food for the first time in their lives, having donated millions of cans to feed US service men during the second world war.

Can you give us infinite granularity? I want to see the barn where Americone is made in Vermont.

Jahn Ghalt: Message received and understood here at bookofjoe World Headquarters®™©.

I have directed my Crack Research Team to cease and desist from ALL other activities and direct their attention to giving you what you — speaking for hundreds if not thousands or — even millions! (yo, joe, wait a sec, slow down, take it easy...) around the world — have asked for.

Stay tuned....

This strikes me as a fine, well-researched effort.

As an Alaskan, the Carrs reference is a good one - and probably the least well known to Americans at large.

For me "Gino's" (West VA) is the most obscure. If I resample the image a few times in Irfanview and zoom in I can make out Ben and Jerry's (Vermont), Timberland (NH), and Campbells (NJ). Sadly Rhode Island's and Delaware's entry can not be read.

This clearly deserves a larger image.
