Cookie lovers want to take a bite out of Romney

The all-natural bakery tells The Hill while in 2008, Obama outsold his then-opponent Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in baked good merchandise 10 to 1, the 2012 race is a totally different story. This election, Romney is outselling the commander in chief by 25 percent.

But Eleni Gianopulos, the company’s “baker in chief,” brings up a sweet point to ITK in an email — customers may be supporting their candidate of choice by buying up their pick for president, or they might want to chomp on the other guy: “Eleni’s New York is all about the ‘Conversation Cookie’ and what’s more fun than taking a bite out of Obama or Romney? Celebrating a national event with friends and family is more fun with cookie conversation. Who do you eat ... the candidate you like or dislike?”

Whether voters want to nibble on an opponent or get a sugar high from their favorite White House contender, the 15-year-old outlet says its Election Day delights can make it to D.C. in time for Nov. 6 festivities. Romney and Obama cookie packages start at $32 and candidate cupcakes start at $35 a dozen.
