Communion Wafer Snacks?!

Well, not exactly, but look closely at the products on the table. This enterprising church in Guanajuato has found a way to raise a little extra money by selling the “holey” wafer sheets left behind after the altar bread has been cut out.

We're not sure what the dark thing on the left is, but we hope it's some kind of spread. These wafers are about as flavorful as rice cakes.
