A Penny For Your Thoughts


By Nancy Whitaker


Do you remember eating your first Peep? Those sweet, sugary marshmallow chicks and bunnies that hops into stores every Easter are the most popular Easter candy next to chocolate.

An Easter basket would not be complete without these cute marshmallow candies. My own children loved the packages of the gooey, sugary, marshmallow treats and would always expect to find them in their baskets on Easter morning.

Even though Peeps were first made in 1953, it wasn’t until I had my own kids that I really paid attention to the chewy marshmallow treat. I love Peeps and I like to eat mine when they are stale and dried out, however, some people prefer their Peeps soft and fluffy.

When I think of a Peep, I think of the yellow chicks and pink rabbits. But, Peeps, just like everything else has progressed and today we see blue, pink, green and purple Peeps.
