Photo a day 89: Chocolate cross


Went on a late night trip to Wal-Mart for a few items. While there I fought temptation while passing bags and bags of Easter candy displayed in almost every isle. Then at checkout I saw this chocolate cross produced by Hershey.

I mean it seems the most logical of all confectionary creations for a holiday marking the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ – more so than sugar coated marshmallow chicks. Still, this wall of chocolate crosses at the checkout line gave me pause, and I decided I had to purchase one.

I’m not sure if I can bring myself to eat it. It just doesn’t feel right. My nerdier side also wonders if a chocolate cross would ward off vampires as well as any other type of cross. (I know, I am not right in the head.)
