Peepalicious

I really love Marshmallow Peeps. But what I love even more is STALE marshmallow peeps. Now, you may say that is crazy talk, but until you have tried stale peeps, you haven't lived. So Peeps used to be a special thing, only available at Easter... kind of like Girl Scout Cookies, you only got them once a year, and you had to wait until the next year for more ( Well, unless of course you froze the thin mint cookies and broke them out in November or something... but I digress). Despite the fact that peeps are now available in varying formations for many holidays, out of principle I only eat them around Easter. In fact, I think I'll go to Duane Reade after work and get some. And then cut a little sliver in the top (you know, like when you heat up a frozen dinner), let them sit around for a few days, and then... enjoy the glory. Not that just-opened-softness that is somewhat overwhelming, but the day-old slightly-firm yummy-ness. And yellow. Only yellow. I can't handle pink or purple, it's just... wrong. Keep it simple. Yellow. Stale. Peeps. Amazing.

You are SO right!!! Only yellow, and only stale, for real. That is BY FAR the best way to eat peeps. LOVE IT! :-)
