Workers at a chocolate company have discovered a five-centimetre-tall column of chocolate drippings they believe bears a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary.
Since the discovery of the drippings under a vat Monday, employees of Bodega Chocolates have spent much of their time hovering over the tiny figure, praying and placing rose petals and candles around it.
“I was raised to believe in the Virgin Mary but this still gives me the chills,” company co-owner Martucci Angiano said as she balanced the dark brown figure in her hand during an interview Thursday.
“Everyone should see this.”
Maybe it’s just my skepticism speaking, but this lump of chocolate resembles something much more earthy to me. As earthy as money, which Bodega chocolates will probably scoop in more of after this chance incident. Besides, if you want a Virgin Mary chocolate to really appear, then why not do the job right and get yourself a Virgin Mary chocolate candy mold? A miracle can be yours, for only $2.49 plus shipping!
