DE PERE (WKOW) -- A bakery in De Pere is getting a head start on the presidential election by selling sugar cookies featuring both the Republican and Democratic candidates.
Uncle Mike's Bake Shoppe started selling Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton cookies at both its De Pere and Suamico locations about a week ago. Owner Mike Vande Walle says they usually make cookies for every presidential election, but they began selling them early this year.
“There’s excitement in the air with both candidates,” he said. “It seems like there’s a lot more bantering with other people.”
The bakery keeps track of which cookies sell better. Right now, Trump is winning, Vande Walle said. Uncle Mike’s will sell the cookies through the November election.
“It creates a fun thing with the election,” Vande Walle said. “Hopefully people have fun taking them into the office. Some who like the candidates put the cookies on other’s desks to tease them. It’s fun back and forth.”
