“I’m giving up spelling and chocolate for Lindt”

Many Christians give up chocolate for Lent. “Lent” shouldn’t be confused with “Lindt” (a Swiss chocolatier and confectionery company), but there are jokes.
     
“hahaha RT @SimonNRicketts: I’m giving up cheap chocolate for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by Jayne McCartney on March 9, 2011. (The original tweet is no longer available.) “As is the family tradition I shall again be giving up cheap Chocolate for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by Clive Chenery on February 17, 2015. The joke implies that Lindt is expensive chocolate.
   
“I’m giving up spelling and chocolate for lindt. http://bit.ly/hkQLb2” was posted on Twitter by Sickipedia_Feed on March 10, 2011. The joke originated on the Sickipedia website.
     
“Balancing addiction and religion can be difficult, so this year I gave up Cadbury’s chocolate for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by “I Loves The ‘Diff” on July 21, 2011. “I’m going to give up Cadbury’s chocolate for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by Michael Bateman on February 21, 2012. “I’m giving up Cadbury’s chocolate for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by Gee Aitch Cee on February 13, 2013. “I’m giving up Cadburys chocolates for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by Castaignede on March 4, 2014.
     
“Today I will be giving up chocolate for Lindt #AshWednesday” was posted on Twitter by Anthony Brennand on February 18, 2015. “I think I will give up Chocolate for Lindt. #ashwednesday” was posted on Twitter by Stevie Vegas (Steve the Juggler) on March 1, 2017. “I’ve got a Lent pun lined up for tomorrow’s #LunchPun, so I’ll recycle an old one here & say I’m giving up chocolate for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by ChrisP on February 16, 2021. “Time for my annual ‘I’m giving up chocolate for Lindt’ tweet #Lent” was posted on Twitter by Matt Dunn on March 2, 2022. The joke implies that Lindt is so bad (or good) that it’s not chocolate.
   
“Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. This year I’m giving up Hershey chocolates for Lindt…” was posted on Twitter by John Noonan on March 5, 2019. “Again this year, I’m giving up Hershey’s chocolates for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by oLoVeLy on March 6, 2022. “Again this year, I’m giving up Hershey’s chocolates for Lindt” was posted on Twitter by mariana Z on March 18, 2011. “Just like last year, I’m giving up Hershey’s chocolates for Lindt” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on March 20, 2022.
   
       
Wikipedia: Lindt
Chocoladefabriken Lindt & Sprüngli AG, more commonly known simply as Lindt, is a Swiss chocolatier and confectionery company founded in 1845 and known for its chocolate truffles and chocolate bars, among other sweets. It is based in Kilchberg, where its main factory and museum are located.
 
Wikipedia: Lent
Lent (Latin: Quadragesima, ‘Fortieth’ ) is a solemn religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar commemorating the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, before beginning his public ministry, during which he endured temptation by Satan. Lent is observed in the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, Oriental Orthodox, Reformed (including Presbyterian and Congregationalist), United Protestant and Roman Catholic Churches.
