*Careful Peeps Oreo has been known to turn your tongue hot pink! Eat at your own risk.* Let’s be honest, no one really likes Peeps. I’m confident that no one on Earth would qualify it as their favorite candy. But if anyone could get people to like Peeps, it would be Oreo. Oreo is coming […]
I hope you all had a lovely Easter with a fruitful post-Easter candy sale haul! If you stocked up on Peeps, you can get a head start on next year’s Washington Post Peeps diorama contest. This year’s winners are up online. A black-and-white rendition of MLK’s “I have a dream” speech took the top prize. […]
The Washington Post has an annual Peeps diorama contest every Easter, and it’s pretty great. People get so creative with their Peeps! This year, the contest closes March 17th, so hurry and get your artsy-fartsy on!
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.
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 […]
Easter is just around the corner – as are post-Easter candy sales! If you choose to load up on Peeps next Monday, check out this Serious Eats post with ideas for what to do with them.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
