So Tasty You Can Eat Him All Gone

obama cookiesMax and Benny's (461 Waukegan Road, Brookside Plaza, Northbrook, IL 60062) is selling these handsomely tasty cookies. They also have cookies for McCain and have confirmed that starting next week they'll be carrying cookies with the faces of the Veeps on them to in case you'd prefer to sink your teeth into one of them. And these cookies don't just look good, they taste good, too. The icing isn't too sweet and the cookie isn't too dense. Much better than anything presidential you can get a chain bakery counter, lemme tellya. And I can say from personal experience that Obama tastes great with a glass of milk -- vanilla soy in my case, but I'm sure he'd go great with chocolate milk, too.

Each cookie is $2.95 and can be picked up at the restaurant, ordered over the phone (847-272-9490), or through their website. And if you're more inclined to get your face on a cookie, they'll do custom orders. You could always get some with your face, some with Obama's face, and then spend a tasty week eating cookies and drowning your sorrows that you got passed over for Biden.

Love these cookies. I wrote about them too. They now have McCain and Biden, and Sarah Palin is on the way! Too cute!
