Easter Woes?  
So. Easter is coming up.

The good news? Lent will be over, and we can all eat the Cadbury Eggs and Reeses Peanut Butter Cup eggs and malted milk ball eggs that will be in our Easter baskets. And we can celebrate Jesus' ressurrection.

*waves to Jesus* Thanks!

The bad news?


In my experience, you either love these things, or the mere thought of these sugar encrusted marshmallow farm friends is enough to send you into a diabetic coma.

So which are you?

Poll #1371435 How do you feel about a PEEP?
This poll is closed.

How do you feel about a PEEP?

They're awful. An abomination.
They send up my gag reflex.
I lurrrrrrve them.
I think someone should tell PETA.
I think Carrie is a dork.

Oh, heh. Not to give away my position, but I found 100 ways to kill a PEEP.

And FYI? You run a BIG risk on an unfiltered computer when you do a google image search for peeps. That's all I'm sayin'. *covers eyes*

I'm kind of neutral on Peeps. In moderation they're okay - and it's kinda cool to microwave them - but I can get enough of them. My favorite Easter candy is the Cadbury Mini Eggs, although I'm a sucker for Cadbury's Dairy Milk year round, so that's not a big surprise.

Beci sent me mini eggs last month! *hugs Beci*


So that would mean that they EXPLODE?

My mother just sent me two trays of Peeps because I LOOOOOVED them....when I was 8. Times have changed, but the fact that Peeps now gross me out if I eat more than one a year seems to escape her. So I try and give them away. Unfortunately, not many people really like Peeps and few are willing to take the little suckers off my hands.

Little Orphan Peeps.

How sad.

When I was in grad school (eons ago), there was a web site on which some college students (I think from Texas somewhere, maybe Rice?) documented all sorts of experiments done on peeps. I can't remember the details, but microwaving came into it, and subjecting them to acid (I seem to remember that the eyes never disintegrated), and various other things. I would try to find it, but I think I'll heed your warning about the Google search and skip it. :) For the record, I like peep, at least in small quantities. Unfortunately, they only come in dozens, which is WAY too much peep!
Carrie Leigh: Evil bunniescarrie_leigh on March 25th, 2009 01:38 am (UTC)
WAAAAY too much peep. I agree. :)

If it's not chocolate, forget it!

I feel the same, sister!

You sadden me, Carrie.

That's all I'm sayin'...
Carrie Leigh: Laverne and Shirleycarrie_leigh on March 25th, 2009 01:37 am (UTC)

But this WHOLE post was to make you smile!

I would NEVER blow up a PEEP in the microwave. I would box them up and send them to YOU. :D

I'm reminded of Makani's drawing of Voldie saying Peeps are his natural allies... and the other of Lucius and Draco having a peep war.

Oooh! I remember that!

This has been floating around the interwebz for years, and it cracks me up.

"While these courageous pioneers of Peepdom fared the ammonia atmosphere of Venus without any ill effects, the temperature must have proved to much for even the heartiest marshmallow chicks."

Ewwww! That's all I'm saying. I don't even allow them in my house- unless it is to blow them up in the microwave. ;)

I'm not a fan, either, kelly. :)

You lost me at *waves to Jesus* - I snorted Diet Pepsi and now my nose hurts. I blame the peeps. *glares at them*
maureenmaureen on March 25th, 2009 02:36 am (UTC)
So add that to the small list of things we DON'T have in common. I love them. So does my stepdad. We both agree they are best when left (open or with holes punched) out a few days so they get nice and hard on the outside.

Mmmmm peeeeps.
sue_bridehead on March 25th, 2009 03:10 am (UTC)
I voted 'ewww'
But then, I don't like marshmallows unless they're melted and mixed with Rice Krispies. Then they're good.

For Easter, gimme chocolate!
Elizabethlittlebit_liz on March 25th, 2009 03:19 am (UTC)
I'm so torn about peeps! I always think I love them, and then I usually eat one and realize it was a bad idea :p Am definitely o excited for Reese's peanut butter cup eggs, though XD

*whispers* What are they? Because I am so not googling them if you've got your eyes covered ;P
Not a lady at all: pic: gartenzwergcosmo_jenny on March 25th, 2009 09:24 am (UTC)
Agreed and seconded.
Though we have some pretty bad easter candy here as well.
WolfStarwolfstar07 on March 25th, 2009 05:23 am (UTC)
I like them more now than when I was a kid, but they're really not that great. I can handle, maybe, one. When I was your kids ages, I hated getting them in my Easter basket. I was a strange little girl who didn't like pure sugar.
Numbaby: CedSkynumbaby on March 26th, 2009 03:58 am (UTC)
I had to vote the last one, as there's no "My hemisphere is peepless" option :P

When I get home from work, I'll see if I can find Fellowship of the Peeps for you - because re enacting LotR: FotR with these things is TEH AWESOME. (even if I imagine they taste icky)
