Robert and his friend Bruce have this "thing" going about PEEPS. Robert hosts a HUGE Easter open house event. Egg hunts. Easter Bonnet judging. Egg coloring. Guess how many Jelly Beans in the Jar. Gifts. Food, food, and more FOOD.

Bruce wrapped up a package of Purple Peeps and gifted to Robert the 1st year. Robert saved them, and re-gifted back to Bruce the 2nd year... Bruce ... regifted back the 3rd year...

Are 15 year old PEEPS properly stale?
I forgot who's giving and who's getting this year...

I think that hard as a rock qualifies them for pot scrubbers.

Well, that's a big disappointment. I will be cancelling my move to Canada! Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peeps

And of course, some people do more than eat them. From the annual diorama contest at the Washington Post: "Suddenly, There Was a Peep!"

They are made from marshmallow, sugar, gelatin, and [b]carnauba wax
Next time I need to wax the trailer, I'll just grab a PEEP and start rubbing

Canadians don't have Peeps? Oh... the humanity! We will send to you immediately!

Peeps are a silky marshmallow covered in crunchy sugar (Presumably, stuck on with wax ) They come in pink, yellow and purple and the traditional ones are shaped like little chicks, + they have bunnies..

They used to be just for Easter, but now there are Halloween Peeps shaped like cats and pumpkins. They aren't the same.

We have peeps in Ontario. They must have them in B.C. too. I'll check with my daughter who lives out there in lotus land.

I'm just going on what another camper told me. Byron said they were better than plain roasted mashmellows. If they aren't then maybe like the article we can have a peeps eating contest.

My geocaching buddies claim they're better than roasted marshmellows. I don't eat either so I can't say first hand. But it's more fun watching the peeps burn than it is watching marshmellows burn.

We just arrived at our friend's house and on the counter were several boxes of yellow peeps -- most were gone. Seems they had a dinner party earlier in the day that got out of hand. Someone had the idea to deep fry the poor peeps.

They admitted it was not a good experience.
