Happy Inauguration Day

I know that most folks are glued to their TVs, listening to the radio or viewing streaming versions on the web of this joyous inaugural.

Here’s a confectionery break. (And a break for me, but I’ll have a roundup from Fancy Food posted soon.)

  1. Love these.  Found some great Obama round chocolates at a compnay call Astor.  Nice label with eagle molded chocolate.  I ate the chocolate and kept the tin - ; )!

  2. Why on earth would you want Obama chocolates? He’s a man not a god.

  6. What’s it have to do with Michelle Obama?? These are just funny chocolates, it’s not to make him a Saint or anything…they’re just chocolates…relax people! They also have Oprah, Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Bono and Al Roker.
