Atomic Bombshell


March 27th, 2005

Though I would consider myself a Peeps purist, preferring the traditional yellow chicks, I am aware of other shapes and colors. Just Born makes more than 700 million of these squishy treats every Easter.

They say, “If you can’t eat em, study em” …So today I learned some interesting things about our long-time Easter friend, the humble Peep:

One of the most interesting Peeps-related finds was where they conducted scientific research on the resilience of these marshmallow treats… These people have way too much time.

Also previously unbeknownst to me, since 1997 “Peepaholics” have been gathering in Sacramento to enjoy their annual Peep-Off. Events include eating contests where psycho sugar fiends consume over a hundred Peeps in the span of a few minutes.

Did you know you can wear them, too? Yep, Peeps bunny necklaces were all the rage last year. Take a look at this huge inventory of Peeps-related links. Play some virtual chubby bunny by stuffing your brain full of marshmallowy goodness.

My favorite by far has to be David Ottogalli, and his “Peeps Show” containing pictures of an amazing shine he built in 2003. Fabricated entirely of Peeps, it’s eight feet tall, five feet wide, and three feet deep.

Happy Easter, and hey… What’s your favorite Easter candy?

    Oh man, my brother loves those too. I used to trade him my creme eggs for his peeps. It was a symbiotic relationship. šŸ™‚

    I love Peeps, but I’m becoming a fan of Godiva’s new offering
