That's Lafayette French Pastry, 26 Greenwich Ave, NYC, (212) 242-7580. According to a commenter at one site, "Ted likes to answer his own phone."
I wonder if Ted sells Obama Waffles too?
Every president's image gets commodified, but with Barack Obama's image, race enters the picture. I can't think of a product with Bush's image on it that had anything to do with his whiteness. Can you? It's almost as if the previous white presidents didn't have a race.
Obama Waffles and Drunken Negro Head cookies are presented by their makers as harmless humor or satire, but they're clearly racist to others, including me. Is it possible to make food with Obama's image that isn't racist? What about, for instance, "choc-O-bama," which is described by its makers as "change you can sink your teeth into"?
The writing on the box: “After many months of hard work towards CHANGE, the time has finally arrived. We all HOPE the future tastes as smooth as this fine choc-O-bama. If you do not believe that one person or one piece of chocolate could make a difference, stop and think again. “YES WE CAN!”
