Peep Things….

Ok…

Let’s talk Peeps… ya know, the squishy, marsh mellow-y things that used to only come out at Easter? Ya… the ones that are out for EVERY holiday now, in every color of the rainbow.

I used to get them for my son, who LOVED them, but now seems to have outgrown them..(hate how kids have to grow up! ) He loved to squish them in his fingers, and play with them..  everything but eat them.. till the very end, when they were just a squishy ball of goo.

Now the peep line seems to be expanding…to THESE..

OREO PEEP COOKIES!!! say it isn’t soooooooo!

Yes… I had to try them….

My first impression was that they were a very bright, pretty pink, but alas,  too sweet for these taste buds.

I must confess that I haven’t had much sugar of late, so that may have played into it..but I felt they were also a little gritty.which probably makes sense, considering regular Peeps have the sugar coating on them…,

BUT…..my daughter and husband LOVED them… sugar addicts that they are…..

So… not so much a fan, but I’m sure the sugar aholics of the world are rejoicing!

Long winter days…

What else is there to do when its been snowing and blowing for days? When wicked wind chills and mounds of snow are every where? Well, you play with skittles!
