In a time of financial bailouts and political uncertainty 1-800-Bakery.com is joining 51 local bakeries in 23 states across America, from New York to California, in putting Barack Obama, Joseph Biden, John McCain and Sarah Palin in the cookie jar. 

With the hopes of adding some sugar, spice and things nice to a nasty and difficult election year 1-800-Bakery.com and the RBA members (Retail Bakers of America) have started promoting the 2008 National Cookie Polls

Gathering voter results over the last four weeks the Presidential Cookie Polls track closely with the more recognized 2008 Presidential polls run by CNN and Gallup Poll. The most recent Gallup Poll update shows Barack Obama at 50%, and John McCain at 42%, while the 2008 Presidential Cookie Polls have the Democratic Party ahead with 11,809 against the Republican Party’s 8,787 cookies sold, 57% to 43%.  

Award winning Chef and culinary pioneer, Chef Steve Pazyra, is doing his part to help lighten the country’s mood by offering the benefit of his online bakery delivery experience to the National Cookie Polls. Chef Steve, who bakes and ships unique birthday gifts through the U.S., believes that by limiting the flavors available to chose from customers will most likely pick who they are voting for and not the cookie they love most. He said, “in order to keep voters from voting for their favorite cookie instead of their favorite candidate the bakeries are doing away with more diverse flavors such as Macadamia nut and chocolate chip. Instead they are sticking to a traditional sugar cookie with an extra sweet icing on top.” 

To help spread the sweeter side of politics, Chef Steve decided to take his specialized online bakery website and jump feet first into the political fun. He has turned 1-800-Bakery.com into something of a live collection point where visitors can catch updates and information on the 2008 National Cookie Polls. Every Friday night cookie sales are tallied around the U.S. and reported back to the RBA. As votes come in curious observers can see the tallies on Chef Steve’s website. There is also a list available of all local bakeries acting as voting booths. 

You can visit 1-800-Bakery.com to find the bakery nearest you where you can cast as many of these sweet votes as you like. And if you don’t find a voting bakery in your area, Chef Steve has set up an online option voters can use to select their particular confectionary candidate.  “People are loving the idea and having a great time,” says Bonnie Headley of Costeaux French Bakery, Healdsburg, Calif.

Some of these editable art pieces are finished with a delicate icing technique leaving a real life impression of the candidates on the cookie’s face. Other cookies used to poll votes for this year’s political polls have very creative oversized caricatures resembling Barak Obama and John McCain on them. 

The 2008 National Cookie Polls close on Election Day November 4. You can participate today and learn more about the tastier side of politics by visiting with Chef Steve at 1-800-Bakery.com.
