Eating Obama

Today is President's Day, and with Barack Obama on a roll for the Democratic nomination, it's a great time to ...  volunteer on a campaign? educate yourself? read up on your history? Nope. Eat chocolate.

Specifically, check out the delicious espresso-cognac nibble imprinted with Obama's mug, made nearby in Oakland by Cosmic Chocolate (which has one of the coolest websites ever). It's part of Cosmic's "Icons" series, which also includes Oprah (raspberry ganache), Madonna (red-hot cinnamon caramel), Bono (limoncello ginger) and, of course, Snoop Dogg (mint grapefruit).
