DE PERE (WLUK) -- One of America's most recognized doctors is being featured on something sweet.
Uncle Mike's Bakery is selling cookies with Dr. Anthony Fauci's face on them.
Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a doctor for the National Institute of Health. He's also had a presence at many White House briefings on the COVID-19 pandemic.
The bakery says it's its way of saying thank you for keeping Americans informed during this unprecedented time.
Bakery owner, Mike Vande Walle says he saw a New York bakery having success by putting Fauci's face on doughnuts and thought it would be a huge hit in Northeast Wisconsin.
“I thought whoa, that’s a good idea because everyone can really connect with the guy, you know, he’s honest, straightforward and so we started doing the cookies this morning and we sold several hundred already today and people are just swarming in, but I think everyone can connect with the guy is why the cookies are popular," Vande Walle said.
Uncle Mike's Bakery has three locations in Northeast Wisconsin: De Pere, Green Bay and Suamico.
All locations are open.
Customers can call ahead for curbside pickup or stop inside the stores.
