Chocolate Mousse Peeps

It’s no secret I like Peeps. In fact, I think they’re close to candy perfection – sugary marshmallow interior plus granulated sugar exterior… how can one go wrong? It goes without saying that when I saw the Just Born booth at the All Candy Expo I made sure to make a pilgrimage into those hallowed environs.

When I arrived at the booth, I saw something that intrigued me – brown squares which looked quite marshmallow-y yet carried a distinctive brown hue. What was this? Something new? I had to know!

I was served one of the brown squares on a napkin, took a bite, and was immediately transported to another dimension of yumminess. Oh. My. God. These were so good! Unbelievably soft, full of chocolate flavor… I had to have more! I immediately asked if they had any samples to take home, and was presented with a coveted pre-release package of brown bear shaped marshmallow goodness.

Once real life calmed down enough to allow me to devote the attention these deserved, I broke open the package and settled back to enjoy the experience. The first thing I notice is the smell – strongly chocolate, a bit like the smell you get when you open a container of chocolate milk powder. The first bite is an absolute delight – these are much softer than a regular Peep, not as thick but with a much more satisfying feeling in the mouth. The brown coloring is seen throughout the marshmallow guts of the bear as well as the sugar coating, which lends a very strong chocolate flavor to the entire confection, rather than just the exterior.

As for the flavor, what can I say? It’s awesome. It tastes a lot like the aforementioned chocolate milk powder, but since I can eat that stuff by the spoonful, you can see how that’s a bonus in my book. Oooh man, these are good. Soft, supple marshmallow infused with serious chocolate goodness….

After wiping the drool from my chin and the tears from my eyes (the six-bear package seems woefully inadequate), I check to see when I’ll be able to buy these beauties at my local store. That causes a sad little whimper, as they won’t be released until around Valentine’s Day. Still, at least that means I’ll have something to look forward to from that hideous love-fest holiday! Bring on the Peeps!

    Sounds yummy! I’m surprised that Just Born isn’t releasing more generic shapes like bears year round though.

    I hope you’ve had a chance to toast them, I really think that brings out the “chocolatey milk” experience.

    I have turn my boy scout troop on to ROASTED PEEPS over the campfire. The sugar carmalizes and get a crust on it. The scout way to eat the chicks is to bite the tops of their heads off and to suck the marshmellow out, then eat the shell. We have been doing this for years. When I found the chocolate mousse bears THIS WAS HAPPENING!!!

    I can’t wait for the cats this halloween.
