L.A. Burdick's Campaign Chocolates

It’s about time someone engaged in meaningful political discussion. Candidates today are so consumed with the economy and war that they are neglecting some of the most important issues out there, i.e., candy. Thanks to L.A. Burdick’s chocolates, confection is now playing an important roll in our country’s future.

Burdick is offering quarter and half-pound boxes of bonbons, each designed for the two major candidates running in November’s election. Boxes are adorned with their respective party’s seal and a color-coordinated ribbon. Within each box are four flavors inspired by the background and likes of the two candidates. Team Obama is sporting Hawaiian-Pineapple, Kenyan Coffee, Kansas Corn Crunch, and Tennessee Sour Mash. Meanwhile, the McCain end includes Arizona Citrus, Hot Pepper Tequila, Peanut Butter, and Kentucky Rye.

For every box you purchase, a vote will be cast for that party’s assortment. Though the results are still preliminary, and boxes will be sold until the November election, Obama has jumped out in front to command the early lead. Are you happy about this? If not, buy a box or two or fourteen to throw your support to the McCain team. Could the promise of Kenyan Coffee be alluring enough to get even the most die-hard Republican to vote Democrat in this case? Remember, democracy only works if everyone participates (and in this instance, it costs between $15-28 per vote).

I think Burdick is really onto something here, and I would be a staunch supporter of this method of voting becoming the official manner in which everyone voted. In their words, “Vote Early, Vote Often!”

    I think the makers of the candy may be a little biased because the Obama flavors sound much tastier than the McCain ones. But maybe that’s just me. And what about the independent parties? They should get a box, too.

    I totally agree with you. Either the McCain flavor is so pedestrian (just regular peanut butter?) or its vague (Tennessee rye). I’m sure they’re both good, but I if I could only choose one, I’d go with the Obama assortment. If they gave all the independent boxes, then we’d need Green Party, Libertarian, etc… maybe they could just make one collective third-party box of about 10 flavors each encompassing the vast array. Dark Chocolate spearmint for the Green Party anyone?
