Pepperidge Farm says it does not know what caused unusual markings on a Goldfish cracker a Melbourne woman says is a sign from God.
Patti Burke found the unusual baked snack during Holy Week, part of the reason she thinks the details on the cracker’s side are something more than just a machine malfunction. She sees a cross and circle, a sign she says means God is present in everyday life.
Local 6 News partner Florida Today sent a photo of the fish to cracker maker Pepperidge Farm, prompting a response.
“Many of our loyal consumers believe our Goldfish crackers taste divine, and we’d like to thank Ms. Burke for her support of our brand. We aren’t sure how this cracker came to carry those markings, as it certainly doesn’t look like the crackers we bake every day. We had asked Ms Burke to send it to us as we don’t usually visit our consumers at home, even for such unique sightings, and hope she agrees to soon, so we can take a closer look.”
Burke hasn’t yet decided what to do with the cracker, and says it’s not likely she’ll give the little guy up long enough to send it to Pepperidge Farm.
When friends suggested she try and sell it on an online auction site, Burke, who calls herself old fashioned, replied: “I don’t even know how to get on eBay.”
