It took Stefan Nadelman (Tourist Pictures) three months to make this engrossing five minute film, a run-through of the U.S.'s post-WWI military entanglements "through the foods of the countries in conflict." There are no captions, so you'll need to think quickly to relate the nationalities to the wars. (Or look at the cheat sheet here.)
Nadelman used actual food, Photoshop and After Effects. As a side note, he says "The food in this film was consumed either by myself or my dog after shooting. None of the cast went to waste."
