Incidental warning: It occurred to me one day that a Peep could be skewered and roasted just like any marshmallow. This turns out to be a bad idea. The sugar coating becomes something like napalm, and quite uncomfortable to eat.

Have you tried extinguishing it before popping it into your mouth? That might affect the flavor profile.

It wasn't flaming, it was just the molten sugar coating.
Alcohol may have been involved.

As a kid I discovered I could get an effective fix for my off season Peeps jones with a jar of marshmallow creme, some colored sugar sprinkles, and a spoon.

Yeah, molten sugar plus skin makes for a blisteringly good time.

Of course it's not food. There's certainly no redeeming nutritional value to these things, they don't really even have a flavor to enjoy. It's just straight manipulation of our primal urges, which assume an energy scarcity that doesn't exist in the modern world.

I'm embarrassed by that reality.

1) throw away peeps
2) acquire better treat/candy

I actually like Food52, but making your own Peeps should only be something you do for fun.  It's going to cost you about 10 times as much to make your own and their going to taste pretty much just like the Peeps they sell for $.50 a case a Wal-Mart.

Pop 'em in the microwave.  It's like a live-action version of Akira.

Put them in an ambrosia salad then throw the whole thing away.

ideas of what to do with them to the right


Insulate your home?

Keep hostages from talking, but in a fun way?

Keep your car's floor mats from sliding around?

Peeps are gross. Every holiday seems to have it's gross food. Candy corn on Halloween... fruit cake on Christmas...

I hear you can melt candy corn to make home made butterfingers though. That might be nice.

Yes, sugar burns... What's more, it starts to drip, then when it hits something, it sticks and continues to burn. LOL, lucky you didn't drip some on you, would have burned like a motherfarker.

Stale peeps roasted over a campfire are heavenly!  Yes, let them cool, then it's like a creme brulee on a stick! Or a candy-coated roasted marshmallow. Sooo good!

Dry them out, put them into a sock and use the sock to beat someone up who has real candy.

I've never had a Cadburry (sp?) egg.  They kinda freak me out.

Phooey. If you make your own Peeps you don't get the classic rubbery, metallic flavor undertones of the industrially produced packaged product. It wouldn't be a Peep without the vaguely distressing chemical aftertaste.

As a kid I used to love those things.

As an adult, I fear that eating one will instantly give me mega-diabetes.

I am surprised that AMHBI is not a viable Fark acronym. I would like to suggest it.

Peep solubility research

"Conclusion:

Given enough time, the proper resources, and access to some really toxic stuff, one can probably dissolve just about anything except Peep eyes. "

It's the yellow and white goo that gets me.  Plus eating one looks like too much work.  What do you do?  Bite off the top and take the goo like a shot?  I'll just stay away.

To heck with the cream filled ones.  Go for the carmel filled ones..... sooo much better and more sugary.

What the hell is wrong with you peeple? Were you molested with a marshmallow when you were toddlers? They are literally marshmallows covered in sugar.

They're just sugar.
