Peeps are my all-time favorite Easter treat. The one I so hoped would find their way into my Easter basket each year.
Somewhere along the way some of my Peeps got old and stale. No way was I going to throw a Peeps away and waste it. And SURPRISE!!!! I found that I liked them best that way. Since then, I've discovered there are many others out there that prefer their Peeps to be stale and kind of chewy.
I've been known to buy Peeps after Easter when they've already been on the store shelves for awhile, bring them home, put a tiny slit in the cellophane and then put the box into the cabinet to 'cure'. My oh my! Stale Peeps ROCK!
One year AD surprised me with my own Peeps Marshmallow Maker.
Another year a dear friend of mine presented me with Peeps lights.
I also have a stuffed Peeps chick and some Peeps pens.
This year Son called to tell me he found something new in the Peeps line at Walgreen's - chocolate covered Peeps!
So yesterday while AD and I were in town I had to drop in and check it out. AD and I shared a milk chocolate covered chick and it was very good. (Not to spoil it for anyone but when you bite into the chick, the inside is yellow.)
But this one - oh, my - DARK chocolate - this one is ALL mine. AD doesn't mind at all. He's not a fan of dark chocolate.
Do you like Peeps?
