CHICAGO (AP) -- Two sisters from Virginia who are trying to sell a corn flake shaped like the state of Illinois on eBay have been forced to rework their auction.

The Web site canceled their first listing because the sisters say the company told them it violated their food policy.

The flake is now back online in the form of a coupon. The winning bidder will be able to redeem the coupon for the actual flake.

Copycat items have popped up on eBay, including corn flakes shaped like Hawaii and Virginia and a potato chip that bears a resemblance to Florida.

Bidding on the Illinois flake ends tomorrow. The top bid early this morning was more than $116.
