Peeps. Yes or no?
The 2012 NY Times slide show showing how peeps are manufactured is still available. I ate one tonight. 32 calories. I could not detect any flavor other than sweet.
I bought them on sale post-Easter sale for just 99 cents at the fabric store
Since 1953, Peeps.
Turns out this is my FOURTH post about Peeps.
There are Peep Haters says Julie Bosman in NYTimes 2012 article . “But for such an innocent, marshmallow-and-sugar pastel candy, the Peep is surprisingly polarizing. Peeps-hater Web sites show pictures of Peeps dipped in liquid nitrogen and smashed with hammers. Admirers dress them in costumes and arm them with plastic swords. Matthew Beals, director of the 2009 documentary ”The Power of the Peep,” said their appeal endures because ”they coexist as both cute and horrible.”
(What Will One Admit to Eating When No One is Watching ?)
My sister sent this photo of some marzipan pigs.
Almond paste confections taste good to me, but I know a lot of people who pass, no matter what shape or color the marzipan takes.
I’m sure you’ve seen fruits and vegetables, animals, or marzipan incorporated into a pastry at a bakery. Some people find it gross.
Marzipan, yes or no?
Philadelphia. Reading Terminal Market And yes, they do mail order.
Chocolate Covered Onions- Yes or No?
The iconic Necco conversation hearts are no longer made.😢
My sister sent out the Brach’s version to the grandkids. I tasted one and spit it out in the trash but I will say she warned me prior to my putting it in my mouth.
Missing the chalky taste and flavors of the original.
But they looked festive so I photographed them along with the cinnamon hearts she mailed.
The little yellow marshmallow chicks wrapped in cellophane showed up in 1953. They used to appear on store shelves at Easter time. Now you can get them year round in other holiday shapes. Information on the history and detailed categories such as “alleged indestructibility“ and Peeps “Recipes” at Wikipedia. There are contests and ingredients listed at that link, too. Yes, people microwave Peeps. That’s a lot of food color, isn’t it? Perhaps you ate them as a child but wouldn’t think of biting off a head of one now.
Here’s the question. Would you eat one? And if you did, would you want the Peep stale or fresh?
There are “Peeps haters” in the world-Julie Bosman wrote in a 2012 article in the New York Times. She states that Peeps are “polarizing”
Something about Peeps must intrigue me as here are two previous blog posts about them
This past week I’ve asked how you feel about eating Cilantro and Rhubarb. What tastes are pleasing to your palate?
Here’s another distinctive flavor.
Licorice-Yes or no?
Meet Menno, from Holland, who has a stand on Saturdays at Winterfeldplatz Market, selling all kinds of licorice. Some with salt. Some with a lot of salt My eldest son likes licorice. I do, too But without the salt for me, please. Here is Menno’s website http://www.lecker-lakritz.de
Above- The brochure listing all the varieties And the assortment I selected for Mark
Somewhere in the archives I have photos of my sister eating a licorice ice cream cone in Twisp Washington. And of course Menno has sold pure licorice powder to our favorite Berlin ice cream store, Kiez Eis, for licorice ice cream. You know I asked.
Erika’s cousin Shannon captured the store exploring we did. I missed National Sloth Day last month.
I captured the “found grocery list” in the cart.
What fun to find and read other people’s grocery lists
first time seeing Peatos
