Chocolate in the news

Chocolate Virgin Mary image restores faith

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Excited workers in a California candy factory are claiming they witnessed a miracle when a glob of chocolate formed an image of the Virgin Mary.

"It's absolutely a miracle," said Jacinto Santacruz, 26, a Mexican-born Roman Catholic who found the 2-1/2 inch chunk of chocolate this week at Bodega Chocolates in Fountain Valley and saw in it a likeness of Our Lady of Guadalupe.


I have seen Jesus many times when eating chocolate, but usually it has to be really dark and very expensive, though even block Hershey Special will do in a pinch when the dark fever strikes.

Visitors to the candy statue have stated that the chocolate has renewed their faith.

I'm all for that -- we don't have near enough faith around here and that's a natural fact -- since there's no chocolate in the house obviously my faith needs renewing as well. Maybe I need to do a little prayin' up towards Saint Ethel M.

Man Trapped Waist-Deep In Chocolate

It might sound like a chocoholic's dream, but stepping into a vat of chocolate became a two-hour nightmare for a 21-year-old man Friday morning.

The man, an employee of a Kenosha company that supplies chocolate ingredients, told police he got into the tank at Debelis Corp. to unplug it and became trapped waist-deep in the chocolate.

"It was pretty thick. It was virtually like quicksand," said Police Capt. Randy Berner.


(Seriously, I'm glad he's okay.)

"You got people in my chocolate!"
