Obamitas are Obama cookies, chocolate cookies with white frosting shaped in the likeness of the American President. These Obama cookies brought to us from Spanish company Neos Brand.
As the President’s popularity plummets at home it’s nice to see that abroad Obama remains quite well-liked. Some are a little concerned that the chocolate Obama cookies might be perceived a racist but we think the smiling, cheerful Obama cookies are meant to carry out the man’s message of hope (that the Obama cookies are tasty) and change (that they start being sold stateside). A 150 grams package of retails for $13 while the larger box (250 g) is $19.
