Retailles d’Hosties

  • Retailles d’Hosties

    Absolutely fantastic snack trivia! It seems the ever-sacrilege-loving Quebecois have turned leftover bits of unconsecrated communion wafers into “retailles d’hosties”, or “host cuttings” — a bag of snackable fragments:

    Unsurprisingly, not everyone is a fan of host cuttings. “People are snacking on hosts and host pieces like it’s candy,” one former Catholic missionary complained to the Globe and Mail. “They’re not distinguishing between the body of Christ and something you nibble on at home.”
