Buy Peeps in packs of 4, 12 or ‘Invasion’!
No, this is not about ‘too many Facebook friends’ it’s about ‘Peeps’ – the luscious marshmallow confection I sink my dentures into. Yes, my originals were good soldiers & had to go!
Sugar, Corn Syrup, Marshmallow & Gelatin; what could go wrong?
When my grown son gave me stink-eye for eating 5 at one sitting – I didn’t feel so bad because I figured others were worse. There’s even a ‘Peep-off’ & in 2017 some guy from California won eating 255 Peeps in 5 minutes.
I heard he doesn’t walk; he bounces!
In the past, it was a long stretch between fixes; I had to go cold turkey after Easter. You wouldn’t want to see me during that time – it’s not pretty…
But since 2014, they sell ’em for all the holidays – but I guess I do need an Intervention; last Ground Hog Day I ate it twice in one day!
What can I say, I’m fascinated by the pillowy Pumpkins, Turkeys & Trump Hats that I see; I don’t know whether to buy it in packs of 4, 12 or ‘Invasion’!
And, I’m such a purist, I’ll only eat the original ‘chick yellow’; not purple, blue, green or plaid! I’m so in denial, I reason all the others are injected with Dye Numbers 2 thru 10!
I’m not proud of my before-every-holiday-addiction but why would the FDA put it out there to eat if it wasn’t good for you? And, like every addict; I hide them from myself for leaner times where my Jake Daniels used to be.
That’s right – sometimes I need to pull ’em out on Hump Wednesday!
For now, I’ll do the meetings & the 12 step & let my stomach do the talking; what’s another Bunny?
