Romney Leads Largo Cookie Poll
For the third presidential election Frida's Bakery is selling presidential candidate cookies.
Since 2004 Frida's Bakery has sold cookies with edible images of the presidential candidates.
The Ulmerton Road bakery keeps track of the number of cookies sold for each presidential candidate. And Largo cookie buyers have correctly predicted the presidential winner in the last two elections, said Bakery Owner Frida Aalipour.
This year with the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Frida's started cookie sales early. As of Wednesday, the poll showed 343 Romney cookies and 321 Obama cookies have sold.
With the RNC in Tampa, Romney cookie sales have increased. There's a lot of excitement about the Republican party coming into the area, Aalipour said.
The official cookie candidate poll will start in September once the Republican and Democratic conventions have officially nominated their candidates, Aalipour said.
