I don’t often say this about food, but I cannot stand to eat PEEPS.

Admit it you or either saying”Preach on Dave” or you are saying “Oh Dave, how could you not love the little marshmallow treats.

The last time I ate a peep was out of protest when I lost a bet!  LESSON LEARNED DON’T BET ON PEEPS!

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a peep or two or three … dozen.

I am not a Peep snob!

From Mental floss here are some Peep facts

  1. About five and a half million Peeps are made every day.  And in one year, enough Peeps are made to circle the globe twice.
  2. It used to take 27 hours to make a Peep.  Back in 1953, each chick was handmade with a pastry tube.  But the process was eventually automated, and now it takes just six minutes to make a Peep.
  3. Yellow chicks are the original, and still the favorite.  Yellow bunnies are the second most popular color and shape combination.  Pink is the second best-selling color.
  4. The vast majority of Peeps are consumed around Easter.  About 2 billion Peeps are produced each year . . . and 1.5 billion of them are eaten during the spring.
  5. The town where they’re made does a New Year’s Eve Peep drop.  The Peeps factory is in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  And on New Year’s Eve, they drop a giant 400-pound Peep chick at midnight instead of a ball.

It is an Easter tradition to Peep.  Not me I would rather POP!

Since it is Easter here are some Easter Stats

Almost two-thirds of Americans say they’ll either make or eat deviled eggs this Easter . . . 34% of people say their favorite Easter tradition is spending time with family . . . and three out of four people bite the EARS first when they’re eating a chocolate bunny.

And from the PR Newswire

A new survey asked people about their favorite and least favorite Easter candies, and we’ve got the results of the five we love the most . . . and the five we hate.

The top five Easter candies are:

Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs . . . pastel colored M&M’s . . . Jelly Belly jelly beans . . . Hershey’s chocolate bunnies . . . and Cadbury Crème Eggs.

And the five people hate the most are:

Marshmallow Peeps . . . generic jelly beans . . . coconut nests (also known as macaroons) . . . bubble gum eggs . . . and candy covered Jordan Almonds.

 

NO PEEPS FOR ME!  BUT THE DEVILED EGGS BEWARE!

Have a great Easter weekend
