They're surprisingly good. I stopped liking peeps a long time ago, but these are very good.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago

Fuck it. I’m curious and I’m buying them.

I’ma do what I want.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

Easter candy is easily the best seasonal candy of the year.

But this? This is a crime.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

Well thanks. Now I'm going to have to look for these in the store

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

If you try them, they're really not too bad. They did a good job.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Maybe I'm just getting old, but these "special" flavors are just ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with regular old peeps. You want extreme peeps? Go play Pudgy Bunny and try not to choke; no special flavors required.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 month ago

If you're old then you should know that you are not obligated to purchase these and that them existing does not affect you whatsoever.

Lol age doesn't equal wisdom.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Last year they had Hot Tamales peeps. They were terrible.

[-] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

I imagine, but how could they not be terrible?

This is why Jesus don't come back

God: "How dare you!?"

You: "Yeah but... this thing."

God: "Oh. Yeah. Good point, I guess. Carry on then."

Can I thank him for the cancer in babies before he leaves?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Sure, go for it.:-)


[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

I don't particularly like Peeps but I would try one of these.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

I'm guessing you'd stop at one.

You really need to contact their marketing department and tell them this year was a missed opportunity, but Easter is a yearly event.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Never realized these aren't all that high calorie. I need to stop feeling so guilty after eating a couple packs of these.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Bet you could eat a hundred of them.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

The absolute upper limit on the number of Peeps I can eat before I go into a diabetic coma is two.

And I'm sure as hell not wasting my two on Dr. Pepper Peeps.

They still contain Red Dye 3. At least until Easter is over. So....heads up. I'd stay away until then.

Shit is is super carcinogenic.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

After your comment, I looked it up and there is very little information about red dye 3 causing cancer. The only thing that I found was it caused cancer in extremely high doses in lab rats, which means absolutely nothing if there has been no studies on humans. Also, these peeps do not contain red dye 3. They contain Red Lake 40 which is apparently safer than Red 3.

[-] [email protected] -2 points 1 month ago

It's banned in cosmetics and declared by the FDA to be carcinogenic. I'd rather not take my chances with anything containing it.

Good to hear these peeps don't have it. I think the pink ones still do though.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

I think its called 'in hindsight'

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

If you like, but they mean the same thing.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Oh is it used like that too? My bad then, Im not a native speaker, just sounded wrong to me.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

No worries. It's not like even a native speaker would necessarily know that and there are plenty of non-native speakers here.
