For Hillary Clinton apparently nothing tastes as sweet as a Oliveburger from the Pickwick in Park Ridge, Illinois. In a 2008 article in Slate the Democratic nominee said there was nothing she liked more than to tuck into a six-ounce burger topped with chopped pimento-stuffed green olives and Dijon mustard.

Trump is a great believer in brand loyalty and loyalty to his own brand in particular. His former butler told the New York Times he liked a steak – a Trump streak – cooked until it was barely edible and cooked for so long "It would rock on the plate, it was so well done".
