Bake-Off: Obama and Romney Loaves Go Head-to-Head in Alameda

Posted By on Fri, Oct 19, 2012 at 12:10 PM

If you're the type who'd rather be caught dead than drinking 7-Eleven coffee, but still want to show your support for your favorite presidential candidate (the convenience store chain claims that their unofficial coffee cup poll has successfully predicted the presidency in the last three elections), you're in luck: The Laughing Squid discovered that Feel Good Bakery in Alameda is selling loaves of sourdough bread stenciled with the likenesses of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

The bakery makes their own stencils cut from thick paper, and then dust on cocoa powder before the bread bakes to bake in the design. In the past they've stenciled on Giants and A's logos, and say that they're open to customers bringing in their own stencils for a surcharge. Now the candidates' breads sit side by side, next to a hand-written slogan, "May the best loaf win!"

And in case you were wondering: Obama bread is currently outselling Romney bread.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
