Ryke's Bakery is giving you a chance for your voice to be heard and your sweet tooth to be satisfied. Visit Ryke's starting October 1st through Election Day, November 6th and participate in a nationwide cookie poll.
Retail Baker's of America has the half-baked idea of undertaking a national campaign of cookie candidates. Bakeries across the nation will be recording your votes. Will the hearts of American voters follow their stomachs? This is the third election for which RBA members have held the cookie poll. The first was in 2004, when RBA accurately predicted the next president as George W. Bush. In 2008, RBA predicted a 59% to 41% lead for Obama through nationwide cookie sales. Over 74,000 cookies were sold!Ryke's tally will be posted daily in the store and on their Facebook page.
Ryke's is serving up sugar cookies iced in their signature Butter Cream decorated with an Obama or Romney Caricature. Make your choice and vote your appetite…er…conscience. Remember, unlike the "real" election, you can vote as many times as you want in this poll. So, have fun with it! Buy some Obama cookies for all the Republicans at work. Or cast some Romney votes for all your Democratic friends in your book club. Challenge your friends, have your kids vote, keep a tally in your office, let your voice be heard!
