How can you survive with no peeps?
What *are* peeps? Is this a delicious food that is found only in America?
. Opinions vary. You mean they aren't ubiquitous in Canada?
No, I've never seen them - although maybe they are in Canada, and I've missed the Peeps phenomenon entirely by not having kids. Cheery little website though!
Hmm. Lack of kids hasn't stopped me from encountering Peeps. And that would appear to be the case with Cristina as well. (Of course Cristina kind of is a kid.)
I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Cats.
They apparently are available in Canada
. Don't ask me where, though.
My introduction to peeps was purely scientific in nature, through http://www.peepresearch.org/
Thank goodness for Attackpoint, or I'd miss out on all kinds of cultural wonders! Maybe it's more than the lack of kids. Maybe it's being married to a dentist who insists that dark chocolate is the only junk food worth having around. (And believe me, we have a LOT.)
Eww, Ediie, I didn't like the cocoa ones at all! The powdery part, and the fact that it was only a very pale imitation of a chocolate substance....
Maybe it's being married to a dentist
Yeah -- I don't think Peeps would be high on his approved candies list! (Caramel-filled dark chocolate candies are my absolute favorite.)
I must admit, I've never had a Cocoa Cat. They just sounded funny.
Cristina, here's a chance to expand your scientific knowledge and your junk-food palate at the same time: T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S
I have to admit to doing a twinkies experiment in high school. We left a twinkie on the roof of the school for a few years to see what would happen to it. The answer: not much.
Bash, send me your address. I owe you a prize, and I have the perfect thing.
Are you trying to sabotage the athletic performance of our neighbors to the not-as-chilly-as-it-used-to-be north?
Look out, Bash. You're about to get all the un-eaten Cocoa Cats. :) Or maybe she just bit the heads off of them.
I'm a little nervous, but I will take the chance of sending my address to Valerie. Up to this point, she has seemed very trustworthy and, well, *nice*. But I'll alert the AP world if the truth turns out to be otherwise...
Well, Spike would say that the gift is not a good one, but maprunner would disagree. So, there you are - you'll have to make your own judgment.
I've eaten lots of strange stuff in my life - raw sheep aorta, rotten herring, fermented mares milk, etc. - and I'd put Peeps close to the least appetizing thing you can eat (not far from Candy Corn).
Uh oh, someone brought up candy corn. Thanks for ruining my appetite.
You got a problem with colored, sweetened wax? I can think of at least one woman who lists it as her favorite candy.
You got a problem with colored, sweetened wax?
Yes. It's disgusting. Haven't I mentioned my dislike of candy corn before? Maybe last October?
