Since this thread is about...not sure, I figured I'd say this here. It's about reminiscing, sort of.
I'm watching the NBC news broadcast just now and they do a piece on the 60th anniversary of a candy product in the shape of baby chicks called "Peeps." They showed all these people celebrating them and they're at the factory in Pa. where they make 4 million Peeps a day and talking about them and this and that. You know how they do.
Is it just me, I've never heard of Peeps? How did I miss them? Admittedly, I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I know about Snickers and Three Musketeers and Tootsie Rolls and M&Ms and Kit Kat and on and on. I can't recall ever seeing anybody with a box of Peeps, never seen them in a store, never got any on Halloween.
So, heard of Peeps or not?
Peeps are arguably the feature of the Easter basket you'd get as a kid. Cadbury eggs, jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and Peeps.
You were robbed of a proper childhood, Muzz. hehe
Hahah, you are correct. And I still continue that tradition to this day. My kids don't really care for them, however they eachget a big ol package of them (12 count) every single year in their basket, lol!! And year after year only a couple end up getting eaten by them so guess who ends up finishing all those wonderful sugar covered treats?
