Eat your favorite deity, the way to your heart (and soul) is through your stomach. Buddha, Ganesh, or even chocolate Jesus. These would even make for a nice dessert after supper. Tom Waits would be proud.

No Cthullu?

I'm pretty sure I once heard Tom Waits say, during a Letterman appearance, that his uncle was responsible for a candy called "Testa-Mints." These were/are (allegedly) small mint, hard candies. The wrappers, I think, each bore a different bible verse. (Collect them all! Assemble your own confectionery King James version!). I'd have assumed it was all a gag, except that a friend of mine said he'd once eaten a Testa-Mint.

Someone should really make this White Chocolate Jesus with Liquid Cherry Center. " could use a toothpick to add the stigmata yourself."

When you meet the Buddha on the road, eat the Buddha.

I've seen the Testa-mints in stores.

Er, perhaps a Communion Boy lollipop isn't the best of ideas, given recent events.

I'm kind of suprised that chocolate dieties became a double post. but here we are.

the tom waits nod was a nice touch, though.

This would be more amusing if their summaries of the different deities weren't so blasted wrong.

Ragnarok is upon us. The New Agers have managed to make chocolate offensive.

Hotei is not the Buddha. The Buddha is not a deity. (Not that it really matters, especially when you're just talking about chocolate.)

I should buy the Buddha one for my husband. It would go great with the soap on a rope I got him for Christmas.

Caramel-filled Jesus was a hot idea passed around(with something else) my college friends a couple years back...

Not too surprising that we never got around to producing the thing given the circumstances.
