I know that some people really don't like peeps, but I do! I LOVE them. According to the Peeps Official website: http://www.marshmallowpeeps.com/ enough Peeps are sold each year to cover the Earth twice. So, I can't be only one that likes them. But I really only like the Easter ones, not the fake ones that they make for all the other random holidays (although I'll still eat the other ones cause I love all sugar). There is just something about little sugar covered marshmallow birds and bunnies that I crave.
However, I don't like them right our of the package. I like them when they are what I call "ripe." Ripe basically equals stale. As soon as I get peeps I open the package, so they can ripen. Once they are good and hard (but not too hard - its a fine balance) I can enjoy them! I recommend that everyone try peeps like this, they are simply amazing. (This method is also recommended by the Peeps Website). The Peeps website also recommends freezing them, which I might just have to try!
Happy Peeps Season Everyone, Enjoy!
