President Obama expressed interest in committing a “sin” on Halloween — and he got his wish in the form of a “devilish” Death by Chocolate cake.
The commander in chief, in Rhode Island to deliver a speech on the economy, made an unannounced pit stop Friday at Gregg’s Restaurant & Pub in Providence with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gina Raimondo in tow.
{mosads}Obama walked up to the eatery’s counter, according to a White House press pool report, and declared, “The word is that the chocolate-layer cake here is deadly and it’s devilish, and so for Halloween, this is the kind of sin that we want to commit.”
The White House resident picked up the tab for the $38.99 dessert, leaving a tip of more than $20.
He was later seen posing with the cocoa-filled confection, and reportedly remarked on its ghoulish name.

“Death by chocolate. That’s kind of scary … yeah, that’s deadly.” He then added, “By the way, has everybody voted?”
In a surreal scene, Obama was eyed taking snapshots with diners who were dressed in Halloween costumes. After posing for photos with customers dressed as the Flintstones, Obama chatted with a 9-year-old boy about what the now-teenage first daughters, Sasha and Malia, used to like to wear on Halloween.
“They always wanted to be princesses,” he said. “Even when they were witches, they were witch princesses. And I was like, ‘You know what, you’ve got to be scary. Maybe some blood.’ ”
