PA bakery: Cookie sales have predicted past presidential elections
The real winner of the 2020 election might be this Pennsylvania bakery.
A family-owned bakery in the town of Hatboro claims that its election-themed cookies — which are currently flying off the rack — have accurately predicted the outcome of the past three presidential elections.
So far, they say sales indicate a clear leader for the 2020 race, too.
Lochel’s Bakery, located in Montgomery County just north of Philadelphia, had launched its most recent “cookie poll” about six weeks back, offering both “Trump 2020” cookies and “Biden 2020” cookies in red and blue, respectively. This year’s sales, however, are unlike anything the bakery has seen during the last four election cycles.

“People are going crazy for them,” said bakery owner Kathleen Lochel in a statement to Fox News, adding that the shop usually only sells a few hundred each election.
Since debuting this year’s cookies, however, Lochel’s has already sold thousands of the treats — and demand doesn’t seem to be dwindling anytime soon. On Friday morning, Lochel’s announced on Facebook that the bakery sold out of its supply the previous day, forcing the shop to close early to “bake, recoup and stock.”
Trump is in the lead 3 to 1,” she told Fox News on Friday morning.
