The rap on President Barack Obama is that he doesn't show enough emotion. But on Wednesday, a pastry made him happy.

En route to a town hall event on the economy, Obama made a surprise detour to O&H Danish Bakery, purveyor of a delicacy called a kringle – a large round flat pastry with a hole in the middle.

Obama walked in with his jacket off and sleeves rolled up and shook hands with the dozen patrons in the store. He sampled a pecan kringle, proclaimed it "outstanding" and added: "It makes you happy."

He ordered one pecan and one cherry. A saleswoman recommended the cheese as well, so he said, "Let's get a third!" He insisted on paying full price – $7.45 each.
