A PEEP-tastic year in review

For those of you who don’t know, I’m crazy about PEEPS® marshmallow treats. In case you need proof:

  • Each holiday, PEEPS are always among my favorite treats, and I always seek them out–from the pumpkin PEEPS during the fall to the gingerbread Peeps during the winter, and the traditional chicks and bunnies during spring
  • I stockpile PEEPS from various holidays–my snack drawer in the kitchen still has a few packs of gravestone-shaped PEEPS left over from Halloween
  • In addition to just bringing home the marshmallow treats, I also have PEEPS decorations in my house for the following holidays: Easter, Halloween, and Christmas
  • I actually feel a twinge of guilt when I bite off one of the cute PEEPS bunnies’ ears. (Yeah, I’m a softie.)
  • I’m proud to be from the same state as PEEPS–let’s hear it for Pennsylvania!
  • I love finding PEEPS treats or merchandise in places you might not expect, like the store Five Below and the Zulily website (I recently bought PEEPS women’s socks and a holiday-themed PEEPS mug from the latter)

Thankfully, PEEPS are gluten-free. (Important note: The only PEEPS treat I’ve come across that isn’t gluten-free are the PEEPS on wooden kebab-like sticks that you can find at Target. The allergen information on that nutritional label indicates it may contain wheat, so if you’re gluten-free for medical reasons like I am, avoid that one. But the PEEPS in the boxes–the bunnies, chicks, dipped chicks, and seasonal shapes for holidays–are gluten-free.) They’re also delicious, inexpensive, and over the years the flavors–especially around the holidays–have become really innovative.

As I work my way through a box of snowman-shaped PEEPS, I wanted to share with you some fun pictures the PEEPS team shared with me–a PEEPS-themed “year in review” for 2015. Enjoy the sweet walk through memory lane!

There was lots of controversy about a dress (for the record, I thought it was blue/black)…
