Many of the 2016 presidential candidates have online stores connected to their campaigns from which supporters can buy t-shirts, buttons, bumper stickers, and the usual products with campaign logos and slogans.

Quite a few of the candidates are having a bit of fun, however, and offering non-traditional items for their supporters to enjoy.

Below, see some of the the most surprising things we found in the candidates’ stores, even if the most surprising thing is a basic t-shirt.

Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, and Lindsey Graham did not have online stores.

“Jeb and Columba love whipping up guacamole on Sunday Funday. Now, you can get in on the act with this ‘Guaca Bowle.’ Jeb’s secret guacamole recipe not included… yet.”
