I know, it’s hard to believe I was around in 1977.  You know what has kept me looking so young? Probably all the Peeps® I ate and played with as a kid.  Please don’t laugh. I have to make my self feel a little better somehow.  The summertime blues are hitting me and I like to think that I still look a little younger than I am.  Peeps® have been around since 1953 I believe so they have a few years on me.

Something that I remember getting every year for Easter is Peeps®.  No, not the kind that our kids think of.. friends, but the delicious sugar covered, marshmallow kind.  My sister and I weren’t allowed to eat many sweets as kids so imagine our excitement when Easter, Valentine’s Day, and Halloween came around every year.

I wouldn’t just eat the Peeps® though.  Oh no.  I got creative with Peeps®.  I put on shows with the little Peeps® bunnies and chicks like you wouldn’t believe.  “Quack” said the mommy Peep.  “Hop to the Mulberry Store to get your school supplies” mommy Peep said as little Peep hopped off into my mouth.  No kidding.  I LOVED everything about Peeps®.  The colors, the texture, the sweetness, the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of the little chicks.  Goodness, those were good days.  Then I went several years sans Peeps®.  You know, the childless years.  When my son was about almost 3 years old, I gave him his first Peeps® and what did he do? He played with them!

I’m sure you are saying something like, “Alicia, it’s not Easter.  Why are you talking about Peeps®?”.  Well, Peeps® are amazing all year round!  Easter, Valentine’s Day, for Teacher Appreciation Day, Birthdays, Christmas, and just any ordinary day.  You can order Peeps® online 24/7.  Whatcha waiting for?
