Waiting for the New PEEP

It has been awhile since a PEEP stepped down.  

At the beginning of history The Just Born Candy company announced the First Peep.

It was , what is now known as the Tradtional , Yellow Peep.  However,   White and Pink Peeps soon followed.

Most Peeps are conservative and prefer the traditional Easter Basket calling it home. 

In 1998 the BLUE peep was voted in as the world watched and white smoke poured from the factories. 

As recently as 2002 a chocolate Peep was voted in to Candyland.  

While black smoke can occur when Peeps are used around campfires in the non-traditional mode of 
S'mores making.....
no smoke at all is preferred.  


So we watch and we wait in this Season of hope....
for the announcement of our new Peep.  

Some feel it is time for a more radical Peep.   Many candylovers have left the Basket in recent years
turning to the Cadbury caramel egg, for comfort and solace.  

IF the PEEP is to continue to lead the world in sweetness, let the leaders choose a bold new Papa Peep carefully.
Afterall there is nothing worse than a stale Peep.  
The advent of nutrasweet has tainted the candy world.   
THe new PEEP must be fresh and willing to inpsire a world weary of Biggest Losers and counting calories. 

Will it be an another Italian Peep?  With so many sweet followers in the Latino Community one wonders if the 
new Peep should replace the Pepito....
sqaushing the gourd followers altogether.    

So we wait and we watch and we wonder  
Surely the New Peep will greet the world before Easter....
sweetening the hearts of all its followers.

I am not a Peep fan, but I am so glad for all of you who are. You are quite creative this morning aren't you?

A timely post on two fronts! ;oD

I never was a Peep fan because of the outer texture. I read last week that a Peep has a shelf life of over a year without getting stale.

when my kids were little I showed them how to blow up peeps in the microwave. Now they get peeps in their basket just to do that. They only abuse candy animals. And yes - hopefully the new Peep will be announced before Easter. g

Very clever!! I got a kick out of this post! I find the news coverage of the appointment of the next Peep to be very interesting.

Although I am not a fan of Peeps, I thoroughly enjoyed your report of their status :-)

I don't care for Peeps at all, but I always buy the new style/color for MJ. She loves them.

This post made me laugh out loud.

I think all Peeps should be yellow. Having said that, I also think that Halloween Peeps, Christmas Peeps, etc. are WRONG. I'm a holiday lover, but have my own personal set of rules as to what is acceptable ...

Katherine said...

I agree with Dee, stale or fresh Peeps rule!! I am waiting for an orange Peep. I think it would have to taste sweet and citrusy. There would be white smoke!!

I ask you, what's not to love about a sweet little lump of pure sugar shaped like a little chick?

geeky Heather said...

LOL!! Peeps are way better once they're blown up in the microwave and collapsed!

Hilarious! I can't do without my peeps for Easter. I admit they are nasty to eat but aren't they just the cutest. The Washington Post holds a very popular Peeps diorama contest every year. Wanna bet we see lots of Pope Peeps this year?

elns said...

Oh Kathy, the appreciation of the peep is a fantastical thing. I am one who prefers to have them around more than actually eat them. Are you familiar w/the Peep diorama contest?

Can't get enough Peeps! The traditionalist in me says only yellow, but I'd never turn a Peep down - never. Thanks for the read!

Jennifer said...

Too funny! I was surprised at how quickly a new Peep was elected. I expected them to deliberate much longer...

My boys like to put the Peeps in the microwave and watch them expand.

I've also heard that Peeps make great s'mores!

Lynneb said...

I can't stop laughing! In fact, I laughed so hard I almost peeped my pants!
Oh, kathyb. I love you so.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE PEEPS! Waynesville, OH has a PEEP Show every spring. The businesses display dioramas of PEEPS in the shops. They are so cute! I saw a diorama of Papal PEEPS online recently. You can see them here - http://dragonlane.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/marshmallow-papal-peeps-conclave
