Obama Serves His Term/ We Serve Dinner

As Obama continues to save the world, his latest target being lax food and drug safety regulations, the tributes in the form of comestibles continue to pour in.

From Germany, we now hear of Obama Fingers, "tender, juicy pieces of chicken breast, coated and fried," with a curry sauce.

Before anyone gets all upset about the reference to actual digits, realize that this might just be a marketing device.

The word "fingers" in the name refers to the fact that it is a finger food. "It's like hotdogs," said Judith Witting, sales manager for Sprehe, the company that makes all manner of frozen foods.

"No one would ever think they are actually from dogs."
Right. We know we aren't actually eating dogs.
Like some people.

Obama Beer

It seems that there is a real fascination with Obama/food.
MSNBC lists some foodies riding the Obama tide.

"D.C. home brewer Sam Chapple-Sokol was inspired to brew a special "InaugurAle" for the occasion called The Audacity of Hops. He asked his father to roast him a special blend of coffee, with beans from Hawaii, Indonesia and Kenya. He then combined the coffee ingredients with Victory malt and Liberty hops."

Gotta love the name.

But months after the Inauguration, and all the tribute treats that were created in his honor, we still find Obama food items.

Obama Snacks

So I detect a theme here, Obama imagery in food, from around the world.
These tasty snacks hail from Indonesia.

Anyone know of any other items?
