Duguay and his wife, Amy, discovered the orange candy a little over a week ago, after the new parents hit the Rite Aid in Auburn for snacks. Duguay said he ate a few of the gummy candies, felt the funny piece in his hand and showed it to his wife. On a lark, they nicknamed it “The Holy Dot” and listed it on eBay.
In a post titled, “A virgin dot? We think not!”, CorporateMal.com skeptically compared the Duguay’s photo to a small Virgin Mary candy mold sold on eBay by A World of Moulds in the United Kingdom.
The write-up was good for a laugh, but it wasn’t so, Duguay said.
“I bought the box unopened,” he said. “I have no idea if or how it could have been placed there . . . We did not modify the Dot one bit.”
In 42 bids, the auction was up to $215. If you were not the lucky buyer, now you know how to make one of your own, anyhow. Link to Dots candy information here.
