His remarks on having a deep fondness for coffee ice cream and cream puffs have sparked loads of political jokes, Twitter hash tags, and hilarious re-tweets. The former president has admitted to buying up to 100g of cream puffs on mornings when his cup of coffee is feeling especially lonely and devoid of creamy sugariness.
