Candidate cookies are a quick look at the men and women who aspire to be President of the United States 2017-2020.


Mike Huckabee, an ex-Baptist minister, is one of the presidential candidates who is a proponent of “family values,” as he defines them. On his website he makes it clear that he will not apologize for his faith nor his values. Some of the positions he takes are Biblical positions, as he interprets them. 

Some of the criticism that he’s taken during this election cycle ties directly to his religious views. For example, when he said that Josh Duggar should be forgiven for his teenage sexual transgressions against five girls, including his sisters. He did not condone Duggar’s behavior; he said that this was inexcusable. He meant unforgivable in a greater sense. He said also that those who talked about these deeds, suggesting that they were enjoying someone else’s difficulty, “revealed their own insensitive bloodthirst.” Fiery language. 

Mike Huckabee is the candidate who once said, “Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire?Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire?”

Huckabee’s cookie contains cinnamon, cinnamon candy pieces, and a dash of cayenne.  These spicy mix-ins represent fire. They also represent the fire that he believes should be applied to the United States tax system, burning it down to the ground.
