Peeps-My Favorite Moments!


In honor of the new Peeps and Company online store, SocialMoms and Peeps that asks I share my favorite PEEPS moments!

Where do I start? As long as I can remember I have been eating Peeps~as my grandmother was the first one to introduce me to my first Peep! She bought them all the time and way back when{Yes I am old}~they only came in the basic yellow and were chicks. I used to sit and eat them with her in her room before dinner and she never snitched on me one time..LOL As she lived with us when I was a child so we shared many talks over Peeps~just her and I.



Then there was another Peeps lover that ate them all thru the year~and that would be my Mother.She loved Peeps to no end. Imagine her excitement when they not only came in yellow but purple~pink and blue! We had all of these in every room in the house and also in the freezer.Mom could be seen with a Peep in the dead of winter~only one on the block too!

 I must get my love of Peeps from them~as I have to admit that these are one of my favorite things about Easter! I love the sweet~marshmallow taste of them.I was so excited when I saw that they were in so many colors and had rabbits and chicks!


I have been getting Peeps since I was a little girl~and I personally think that my dad got the naughty ones because look at the picture I found in my parents things~
Good thing that I was the one to find that..What would my Mother have thought?! LOL

Not only are Peeps good just to eat out of the package~did you know that there are many recipes to make with them?!? This year I am going to make these for the grandchildren~
