Three Brothers Bakery: This Houston institution is bringing back its Presidential Cookie Poll, where customers can vote for their favorite candidate by buying one of three cookies (all $4.99): a Trump cookie, a Biden cookie, or a Gingy cookie — a candidate you may not have heard of before. "Vote" here.
"We are already having some controversy," said co-owner Janice Jucker in an email. "We reused the caricature from 2016 for Trump, and folks loved it back in 2016. Now we have received complaints that he is not smiling because Biden is smiling (Gingy doesn’t smile because he does not have a mouth). It’s not politics; it’s cookies. We have been accused of favoritism, but really we just wanted to save some money, and our bias is always toward Gingy."
