For the Fourth of July, Google wants you to play with your food.

The newest Google Doodle lets you play baseball, that classic American pastime, with a bunch of "characters" based on our nation's favorite foods. They include a hot dog ("H-Dog"), popcorn ("Power Pop"), and a corn on the cob ("Cobbra").
