Will Ferrell Most Resembles a Peep

According to a survey released by Just Born (so you have to imagine that the results might be a bit biased), the celebrity that most resembles a Peep (“either in physique, colorful attire, or sweet nature/personality”) is Will Ferrell. I wonder what criteria people thought of when they chose Will? The female celebrity who most resembles a Peep is Jessica Simpson. I don’t really see that at all. Will Ferrell, yes. Jessica, not so much.

Additional interesting Peeps facts, according to the survey:

  • 59% of voters prefer the Peep Chick over the Peep Bunny
  • Most people prefer eating their Peeps head-first
  • Most people also prefer eating their Peeps fresh from the package, instead of stale [sacrilege!]
  • People think that President Bush and Britney Spears are most in need of Peeps

So what does everyone think? How do you enjoy your Peeps? (or do you?)

Easter Candy Review: New Peeps Products

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Holiday Candy,New Candy,Soft Candy

Just Born, the makers of Peeps, the holy grail of Easter candy, are on the fast track to cornering all the holidays. Peeps are now available in various colors and shapes to accommodate a variety of holidays. Did you ever think you’d be able to buy Peeps in every season? Well, Easter is the ultimate holiday for Peeps, and to celebrate this Easter, Just Born introduced several new items.

Marshmallow Peeps in green

Let’s start with the classic Peep, but hello, here they are in a lovely grass green! A few years ago Peeps started coming out in brighter hues. I remember being thrilled and yet a little frightened when I first spied the turquoise and bright lavender Peeps. I think this new green shade is very spring-like and festive.

Valentine’s-Themed Peeps

Once upon a time, Just Born’s Marshmallow Peeps were strictly an Easter candy, and they garnered a huge following, as evidenced by the amount of websites and articles devoted to them. Naturally, Candy Addict has already collected a lot of those links. Within the past few years, Peeps have been popping up all over the place. There are ghost and black cat Peeps for Halloween, stars and tree Peeps for Christmas, even patriotic Peeps for the Fourth of July. And there are Valentine’s Day Peeps for February 14th. If you’re looking for something a little different to give to your sweetie, then Peeps might be a good alternative to the standard box of chocolates.

This year, they have Vanilla and Strawberry Creme flavored Hearts, regular marshmallow Pink Hearts, and a Decorating Kit, where you can personalize 4 Peep Hearts with cake icing. But what really impressed me this year is their offer of recipes and craft projects with Peeps as major ingredients. Check out the Peeps I Love You Bouquet, Sweetheart Lollipops, and Strawberry Cupcakes.

Valentine's Day Peeps Craft Projects

Complete details are on their website, but as the entire thing is in Flash, I can’t link directly to the actual page. Just click on Valentine’s Day or check out the Featured Recipes and Crafts section for full instructions on how to make those nifty Valentine’s Day gifts.

Giant Yellow Peep Drop and Peep Research

There is a celebration on New Year’s Eve called First Night that occurs all across the country and celebrates the new year in a family, non-alcoholic way (which sound totally weird to me, but to each his own). They celebrate by dropping all kinds of things in much the same way as the ball drops in NYC. For example, here in the Raleigh, NC area, they drop a huge acorn (don’t ask me why). This year, in Bethelehem, PA, they dropped a huge yellow Peep. For those that don’t know, a Peep is a marshmallow candy found mostly at Easter time.

The Peep they dropped was four feet tall and made of fibergalss – it was 200 times larger than a normal size Peep. The company that makes Peeps, Just Born even “donated Peeps for roasting at charcoal fires on the plaza.” I never even considered roasting Peeps. I need to try that sometime. Peeps, on the whole, just don’t do it for me really.

Speaking of Peeps, stop by Peep Research sometime for a good chuckle. At Peep Research, they conducted lots of scientific tests on Peeps and documented everything. They analyze their reaction to cold, heat, and low-pressure environments. They do solubility testing on Peeps and even delve into subjects like “Investigating the effects of smoking and alcohol on Peep health”, “Quintuplet Peep siblings, conjoined at birth, have been separated through this daring application of modern medicine”, and they discover what causes the Fear Response in Peeps. Funny stuff.
