Pope Mohammed sells a sugar-free candy product. He’s on the road every day of the year beating the pavement searching for buyers.

You could say, with some bit of hyperbole, that Pope Mohammed appears to be everywhere all the time.

Lots of people say they like it, but what customers really think is unknown. It’s forbidden to talk about Pope Mohammed’s candy negatively.

There’s a growing number people complaining about Pope Mohammed’s candy. The collective voice of candy customers are all raising their index fingers to their lips saying, “Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! You’ll hurt Pope Mohammed’s feelings.”

The growing number of dissenters prefer candy sweetened with sugar and cocoa.

What’s that, you say? What does Pope Mohammed call his widely-purchased sugar-free treat?

Why he calls his candy Heaven.
