Yes we can

In Dar es Salaam, it is not unusual to turn a corner and find yourself staring at Barack Obama. Obama’s image adorns everything and anything, including kitenge fabric, clothing, backpacks, and lunch kits.

So far, my favourite Obama product is the Magic Obama strawberry flavoured bubblegum that I found at a market near our house.

Apparently, in Ghana there are also Obama cookies.

    Ottawa also sells Obama cookies in the Byward Market, in the shape of a maple leaf. Apparently President Obama walked into the store one day, commented on how much he loved the cookies, and we decided to name them after him. Go figure!
