Struggling to explain God's ways to your Sunday school class?
Nothing says "atonement" like sugar tinted with Red Dye No. 3.
The Salvation Candy Tube, produced by the company Bible Candy, helps the
scriptural medicine go down. Kids use squeeze bottles of colored sugars
to fill the tubes, designing their own sweet salvation. "Each
Salvation Color is a different yummy flavor," says the Web site.
The "green growth" of Jesse's shoot has the flavor of
little green apples. "Jesus' blood" is sweet as cherries.
And "heaven" tastes exactly like it sounds--cool lemonade on a
hot, hot day. Leftovers? How about sprinkles for sanctified cupcakes?
(The tubes are available in English and Spanish to meet the spiritual
needs of a varied demographic.)
