Running With My Peeps. Literally.

Recently I found a box of marshmallow Peeps in the back of a cupboard. After rejoycing in my good fortune, I decided to take them out on the trail for a mid-run snack. Against the background of the red mountains, the Peeps are bright enough to burn your retinas.

It was fine with me that the peeps had become a little crunchy. No matter how long these heavenly morsels sit in the cupboard, you can't kill delicious.

I would like to meet the person who thought "You know what? Marshmallows look so boring! Lets get creative and shape the marshmallow like a bird. And you know what? Marshmallows aren't sweet enough. Lets cover them with a coating of dyed sugar." I think this person deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.

  1. I just finished my last box of Peeps last week! The staler the better, I say :)

  2. Can't say that I've ever really indulged in these things but they are awfully pretty in that red rock setting. They kind of look like they are ready to melt too.

  3. I am not big on candy or sugar, but Peeps are my favorite food. :) AND, I always slit the packages so they get stale, because while I love them fresh, I love them even more stale. Mmmmmmm peeps. ;)

  4. Susette, you've never had Peeps?! They are the BEST! Especially when crunchy. My siblings and I would always open our Peeps packages at Easter and leave them to aerate for a few days. That's the only way to eat them.

    Well, either that or nuke them for 15 seconds.

  6. Genius comes in so many forms. I just never would have thought it would come in the form of a yellow marshmallow duck.

  8. You have no idea how jealous I am right now! Hard peeps are quite possibly the next best invention after putting peanut butter and chocolate together to create the reeses. Yum!
