It's the national cookie poll--would you pick a McCain cookie or an Obama cookie? As of Tuesday, the latest cookie poll at a local Tasty Pastry shop was McCain at 213 cookies and Obama at 234 cookies. And just like the general election, many people are putting a lot of thought into their cookie of choice.
Sean Everett, a Tallahassee resident said, "I was torn. I was 50/50 until I bought the Obama cookie and they charged more tax. I definitely got more tax on the Obama cookie. No doubt, ten percent more."
Some bakeries, including Tasty Pastry in Tallahassee, are taking part in a national cookie poll where they will eventually add all of their numbers together to see who wins the cookie poll.
