"Eric entered the bakery with a mask on and then took off his mask to address his supporters. The secret service did not allow us to get near Mr. Trump to address him," the bakery said in a Facebook post.

The bakery was the talking point of much discussion lately, as a presidential cookie poll was making waves on social media.

At Oakmont Bakery, it's a tradition for the family-owned business to bake cookies with the candidates' faces in a presidential election year.

Whichever candidate "sells" the most cookies "wins" the race.
