Empty calories: Introducing the chocolate Obama with salted caramel icing

That was a headline we wish we’d never had to write.

Forget “please-don’t-report-on-Benghazi donuts” for the White House press corps. There’s a new frosted charm offensive in town if you’re in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Behold “The Obama”:

Jim Treacher calls it the “perfect pastry” to honor the president: “sugar-coated, bad for you, and empty inside.”

More on the Obama donut from the Julie Darling Donuts Facebook page:

In honor of President Obama coming to town we are creating a chocolate donut with salted caramel icing…we’ve heard it’s a flavor he likes in candy. Come try the OBAMA donut, we will be saving him one on Tuesday!

President Obama will be in Chattanooga next week, but for now, Julie Davis of Julie Darling Donuts is bringing The Obama home.
