Bake-Off: Obama and Romney Loaves Go Head-to-Head in Alameda
If you're the type who'd rather be caught dead than drinking 7-Eleven coffee, but still want to show your support for your favorite presidential candidate (the convenience store chain claims that their unofficial coffee cup poll has successfully predicted the presidency in the last three elections), you're in luck: The Laughing Squid discovered that Feel Good Bakery in Alameda is selling loaves of sourdough bread stenciled with the likenesses of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
The bakery makes their own stencils cut from thick paper, and then dust on cocoa powder before the bread bakes to bake in the design. In the past they've stenciled on Giants and A's logos, and say that they're open to customers bringing in their own stencils for a surcharge. Now the candidates' breads sit side by side, next to a hand-written slogan, "May the best loaf win!"
And in case you were wondering: Obama bread is currently outselling Romney bread.
