Munching on Merkel
Phil Goods’ team knew this was a memorable silhouette, though probably not an easy one to digest.
When Angela Merkel announced she had shed a few pounds—having cut down on cookies—she’d never have guessed that someone would come up with an ingeniously simple idea: to make a cookie-cutter in the shape of her head. The company, Phil Goods, has created a mold for the very thing the chancellor had given up, or, in other words, provided the world with the chance to enjoy homemade Merkel cookies. The company had prior experience in the cookie-cutter world, with a ‘celebrity portfolio’ already featuring Mozart, Wagner and Beethoven. Fans from across the globe have now turned Phil Goods into a huge success, leading the company to move from its classical music repertoire into the always ‘out of tune’ field of politics. For the pleasure of munching on Merkel (phil-goods.com).
