Happy Passover. Eappy Easter
from Big Head Balloons

On the way to the parking garage as I was leaving town, luggage in hand….I had to stop and take a photo.

There is a Balloon Banksy at work (although the article says he’s retired) Joel Klein has been in the ballon biz for more than 40 years and runs Big Head Balloons and you can see his creations on Instagram bigheadballoons.

Peeps. Yes or No?

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.”
