BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich. — Adventist parents everywhere are desperately trying to console their children amid cries of rage and great disappointment. At the counsel of the General Conference Children’s Ministries department, Adventist parents used carob eggs for Easter egg hunts this year, a move that has appeared to have completely backfired.
Andrews University child psychology professor Esperanza Dulce reported that she had received a stream of calls from parents expressing guilt from “crushing their little ones’ dreams with what we all know is a massively inferior chocolate subsititute.”
“Children set out to hunt for chocolate eggs, their faces aglow with excitement only to bite into a mouthful of disappointment,” said Dulce who attended a carob Easter egg hunt in Berrien Springs earlier today. “From the looks of their faces they could just as well have eaten mud.”
