Washington Post Peeps Dioramas

March 28th, 2013 by Rosa

Every year, the Washington Post runs a fun Peeps Diorama contest. This year’s winners are up, and they’re great, as usual. Check them out here. There’s also a Peeple’s Choice contest for the public’s favorite diorama. I like the meta one about the human diorama contest in Peep land, and the pink slime one.

Peeps swag – WANT

May 17th, 2012 by Rosa

I’ve never been big on eating Peeps. I rarely buy them, even on sale after the holidays, and whenever I do eat one, it’s like, “eh, still tastes just like sugar, just like last time.” I do, however, love their look and their decorating possibilities. And as I learned last week, I love me some Peeps […]

Milk Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Peeps

May 3rd, 2010 by Rosa

In general, I don’t believe in buying seasonal treats when they’re actually in season. They taste great throughout the year, and they’re cheaper when you buy them in post-holiday sales! Just Born was the buzz of the candy/food blogosphere when they announced their chocolate-covered Peeps. I wasn’t going to review them since Easter is long […]

Got Leftover Peeps?

April 6th, 2010 by Rosa

If you have leftover Peeps from your Easter baskets, or if you’ve stocked up on them in post-Easter candy sales, why not turn them into Peepshi (Peeps sushi), Peeps Krispie Treats, or make them into a sandwich? Or save them for next year’s Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest. This year’s crop of winning entries was […]

Chocolate-Covered Peeps

November 12th, 2009 by Rosa

Candy cycles these days are ridiculous. Halloween candy coming out in August, Christmas candy showing up in early October, and now a Easter-related peeps announcement that actually came out in early October as well… it’s like fashion where they show you the next season’s line when the current season is just getting underway. Anywho, via […]

Peeps – Chocolate Mousse Marshmallow Cats

October 26th, 2009 by Rosa

Yet another treat from my NCA Halloween goodie bag: Chocolate Mousse Marshmallow Cat Peeps! I write about Peeps a lot, but I’ve never actually formally reviewed them. I feel like they’re a candy that’s so ubiquitous that people already know all about them. I decided to give these guys a review – if a short […]

Peeps!

July 23rd, 2009 by Rosa

I don’t especially love eating Peeps, though I will buy a pack or two if they’re on sale after Easter. I do, however, love the creativity that Peeps can unleash in people, as exemplified by the Washington Post’s Peeps Diorama contest. I made the following Peeps futball game to celebrate the Yale Concert Band’s then […]
