An Easter Candy Tragedy

I love peeps, really I do. There are many in the world who do not understand my obsession and that is ok, that means there are more peeps for ME!

Today as I was in Walgreens, I came across something that stopped me in my tracks. I was devastated and heartbroken that the Just Born company would take the most important ingredient (or at least one of the top two ingredients) out of the make-up of these time-honored treats. Just who could enjoy a Sugar-Free peep? I stood there in the aisle, wiping my eyes, wondering if I was hallucinating. No, it is true, they are selling sugar-free peeps. I considered for a very short second purchasing and trying these new treats but I couldn't be a traitor to my original sugar and marshmallow concoction. Instead I picked up a super size package of the orignal yellow colored bunnies and brough them home to enjoy.

Oh and a random thought for you, did you know that you can buy sugar-free peeps on ebay, tis true my friends, for a starting bid of $4.99 these lovely sugar-free friends could be yours!

As a person who isn't a fan of the Peeps, I do have to say I find this to be very disturbing...Sugar Free Peeps just...Aren't American!
