Have you tried them this year? I mean, any of you who have kids, and have done some early Easter Bunny shopping, and bought a pack, and they accidentally ripped open, so you tried one of those
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO THE PEEPS?
Usually the bunny PEEPS are just right. So soft. So sweet. With just the right texture, a bit rough, a tiny crunch of sugar when chewing their marshmallowy goodness. BUT NOT NOW! It's like the PEEPS have undergone a makeover. And nobody is telling us about it. They are too thin-skinned now. The PEEPS, not the makers who are withholding information. Try one. Or more. The sugar is like a spray-on tan. Thin. No crystals.Whereas the PEEP used to feel grainy and coarse, like manly man's skin after playing a rousing game of beach volleyball...it now feels soft as a baby's bottom. I DON'T WANT TO CHOMP INTO A BABY'S BOTTOM!
Yes, indeed. Something has gone amiss with this year's bunny PEEPS. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody is counting our calories for us. Or saving money on the cost of sugar or shipping. If only a PEEPS aficionado had a PEEP or two left over from last year's stash, under the sink, maybe, letting them harden like I've heard some folks enjoy them, and could compare this year's batch to last year's.
Something is rotten in the state of JustBorn.
Which doesn't mean that I will stop eating PEEPS.
