Sweet Politics

by Matt B on September 10th, 2008

No matter what your beliefs, politics can be a nasty business. Max and Benny's in Northbrook is featuring the sweet side of the Presidential race.

obama cookiesThe suburban bakery is selling cookies bearing the faces of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John McCain, and Sarah Palin. You can show your support by featuring these tasty treats at your next get-together. Or take out your frustrations with the other political party by taking a fierce (and delicious) bite into the opponent's head.

Each cookie is just under $3, and you can order them in person, by phone, or online. And if you'd rather get someone else's face on a cookie (or even your own), that can be arranged too.

So, just which cookie is more popular? Well, this is Illinois after all, Obama's home state, so Obama cookies are outselling the McCain cookies 20-to-1.

And if you have a taste for the not-so-sweet side of politics, check out fellow b5media blog, Sirened.
