      You really need to contact their marketing department and tell them this year was a missed opportunity, but Easter is a yearly event.

      I’m guessing you’d stop at one.

      If you try them, they’re really not too bad. They did a good job.

    God: “How dare you!?”

    You: “Yeah but… this thing.”

    God: “Oh. Yeah. Good point, I guess. Carry on then.”

    Easter candy is easily the best seasonal candy of the year.

    But this? This is a crime.

    They’re surprisingly good. I stopped liking peeps a long time ago, but these are very good.

        Oh is it used like that too? My bad then, Im not a native speaker, just sounded wrong to me.

          No worries. It’s not like even a native speaker would necessarily know that and there are plenty of non-native speakers here.

    Never realized these aren’t all that high calorie. I need to stop feeling so guilty after eating a couple packs of these.

        The absolute upper limit on the number of Peeps I can eat before I go into a diabetic coma is two.

        And I’m sure as hell not wasting my two on Dr. Pepper Peeps.

      They still contain Red Dye 3. At least until Easter is over. So…heads up. I’d stay away until then.

      Shit is is super carcinogenic.

        After your comment, I looked it up and there is very little information about red dye 3 causing cancer. The only thing that I found was it caused cancer in extremely high doses in lab rats, which means absolutely nothing if there has been no studies on humans. Also, these peeps do not contain red dye 3. They contain Red Lake 40 which is apparently safer than Red 3.

          It’s banned in cosmetics and declared by the FDA to be carcinogenic. I’d rather not take my chances with anything containing it.

          Good to hear these peeps don’t have it. I think the pink ones still do though.

    Last year they had Hot Tamales peeps. They were terrible.

    Maybe I’m just getting old, but these “special” flavors are just ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with regular old peeps. You want extreme peeps? Go play Pudgy Bunny and try not to choke; no special flavors required.
