EASTER TIME.........PEEPS


Some things just seem to hang around forever. In this case...I would be glad to see these go! Oh, I suppose they are not too bad...32 calories and 0 fat grams each. But,I have come to find that some people really love them. In fact, several years ago...my Mom said one day when we were in the grocery store together,"I could eat every one of those." She was referring to a box that contained 4 colors of the strange little animal...24 total. I had no idea! I had never seen her eat one. So, we began getting her Peeps at Easter. And, did you know...they are available as ghosts and bats at Halloween. Also, as pumpkins at Thanksgiving, and bells and reindeer at Christmas. We would always surprise her with a new kind! But, lots of adults seem to like them, too! That's a surprise to me!

There is now a Peeps Store, and by the looks of it, a Peeps car!



Some folks are even using them in their hot chocolate instead of marshmallows! YUCK!



Please, Oh, Please, do NOT let me find a PEEP inside my hollow chocolate egg!


Can you believe this? Now it is possible to get CHOCOLATE COVERED PEEPS! What a waste of good chocolate!



Maybe all you need is just the tiniest taste...here you go! Just lick your lips!



If your desire is to impress...here's a 'peep' of an idea!



And, should you think that just because you need to avoid the sugar, you are bound to be 'peep-less', NEVER FEAR...here's SUGAR FREE PEEPS!



This, my friends, is as close as I want to get to a PEEP!

What a cute (and informative) post, Tonja! I can't imagine eating that little Peep floating in the hot chocolate. He looks like he needs to be rescued ... lol

Thank you for sharing these with us ... I never realized there were so many kinds of Peeps.

I agree with you - the peeps are adorable, but I don't like them at all. The only way I like marshmallow is when I toast one over the fire and it gets all black on the outside!

I have a string of Peep lights.
I don't buy them much anymore but I do like them. Maybe I will have to try the sugar free ones! I like the idea of them in the hot chocolate!

Dearest Tonja, where ever do you find such useful information? You are amazing!

I am one of those adults who like peeps, but only when they are stale. My DIL bought them last year as soon as she saw them, opened the package and let them dry out and put them in my Easter basket. What a sweetheart! I actually got Peeps chapstick for my birthday but have not tried it yet.

YUCK I hate peeps too! My sister loves them... for all holidays! I did have a ghoul peep in my hot chocolate for halloween once, and then it wasn't bad cause it melted away!

Hmmmm....I actually like them. Just a few though and then I've had enough. I saw some just yesterday and was tempted, but didn't give in. Yet, anyway. LOL

Hugs!
