Sweet Salvation

12:15 PM -- More theophagy from Boston.com:

    Workers at Angiano's gourmet chocolate company, Bodega Chocolates, discovered under a vat a 2-inch-tall column of chocolate drippings that they believe bears a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary.

    Since the discovery Monday, Angiano's employees have spent much of their time hovering over the tiny figure, praying and placing rose petals and candles around it...

    For Jacinto, the discovery came just in time. Raising a son on her own, she has struggled with marital problems for months and says she was about to lose her faith.

    "I have big problems right now, personally, and lately I've been saying that God doesn't exist," she said, pulling the dog-eared prayer card out of her pocket. "This has given me renewed faith."

re: Sweet Salvation Call me a cynic, but this sounds like a PR stunt. Chocolate sales usually drop during heat waves. It sounds like Bodega found a great way to get people into its Boston shop during one of the warmest summers on record.

You're right, the store is in Fountain Valley, in Southern California not far from where I grew up. The heat has been blistering there this summer as well.

It turns out the Chocolatier is, in fact, from the sunny and fruity state of California.
