Chocolate crosses

Chocolate crosses

There’s been a big to-do the last couple of days over a candy company selling chocolate crosses. I have to confess, I don’t understand what the big deal is.

I’ve seen and eaten chocolate crosses since I was a kid, along with chocolate paschal lambs, cross-shaped bread, rolls, and desserts. In fact, food bearing Christian imagery, including the cross, has been part of Catholic culture for centuries. I would think we’d be happy that a secular company like Russell Stover was putting the Christ back in Easter. Frankly, I’d rather see kids getting chocolate crosses on Easter morning over chocolate bunnies.
