Peeps have been around for years. I remember them in my Easter basket as a child, though I was never really a fan. I was all about jelly beans (no black ones, please) and all things sugary. I was not really interested in chocolate at that point in my life. Sure I would eat it if it was put in front of me, but I was a fan of all things gummy. I also remember these marshmallowy eggs with a hard candy coating – have no idea what they were called or if they are still made, but they were awesome!
Peeps are gluten-free, so I thought that maybe I would try them again and actually like them as an adult. I was wrong. I still don’t particularly care for them. They have new varieties, too, chocolate covered, chocolate dipped, multiple shapes & colors and they are offered pretty much year round and not just during the Easter season. The chocolate covered Peeps aren’t bad, but not something I would go out of my way to find. True Peeps fans & followers may disagree.
So, Peeps – Thumbs up or thumbs down in your book?
