I have never had a peep in my life but now just knowing I can't one until Easter makes me crave one.  I think it would be delishish in hot chocolate.

Every year I buy snowmen peeps and hot chocolate for teacher daughter to serve to her class. They love the special treat.

My mom absolutely loved Peeps....would open the package and let them dry out a little. Myself, never could acquire a taste for them.😊

Wow, sniff.  I take the yellow chicks as a sign of spring.  I don't actual eat them, but I like to see them.

Re: Alert: peep shortage, PAUSE IN PEEP PRODUCTION

I remember when there were just yellow peeps in the shape of chicks, and you saw them only at Eastertime.

 

I find these variations unsettling. It's like Kit-Kats. I love Kit-Kats, but then I stumbled on a site featuring all of these Kit-Kat variations made for the Japanese market. It was disconcerting. I think there was even Wasabi Kit-Kat.

 

If there's such a thing as Confectionary Alteration Dysphoria, I gots it.

To those of you who are against the candy company alerting us to this important shortage, would your rather they didn't make a Peep?
