Here’s some fun political sweet treat info for you this Halloween:
- Over at Jones Soda, the “Yes We Can” Cola is their best selling Campaign Cola with 13,902 bottles sold. The “Ron Paul Revolution Cola” is second with 6060 bottles bought; “Pure McCain Cola” third with 3492; and “Capitol Hillary Cola” comes in fourth with 2148 bottles bought. The votes are still being tallied with each bottle bought, so head over and cast your vote with purchase.
- You can shop Kai’s candy to get your own Obama or McCain (or a combo pack) lollies. Seriously, you can actually lick Obama’s …. face. What were you thinking?????
- Over at L.A. Burdick, they’re selling boxes of Obama and McCain chocolates. Obama’s chocolate box has Hawaiian-Pineapple, Kenyan Coffee, Kansas Corn Crunch, Tennessee Sour Mash. McCain’s box has Arizona Citrus, Hot Pepper Tequila, Peanut Butter, Kentucky Tye. So far, they’ve sold a ton more Obama boxes than McCain boxes, 3019 – 951. (I admit that I don’t understand some of the flavors. Care to explain Obama’s TN connection? McCain’s tequila? Anyone?)
- Not a sweet fact, but fun for Halloween nonetheless: according to Steven Silverstein, CEO of Spirit Halloween, a national costume chain, Obama masks are way outselling McCain masks for this holiday 65% – 34%, as of 10.15.08. Speaking of Obama masks:
Steve Kelley, The New Oreleans Times-Picayune, 10.24.08
Just a couple for you today. I’ll have a couple more tomorrow.
Look closely at this one, spend some time. There’s lots going on here.
