100 lb. Club - Peeps!! ~ I'm addicted!

View Full Version : Peeps!! ~ I'm addicted!

02-26-2003, 05:15 PM
Ok, so easter is coming and the stores are already filled to the brim with easter candy. I spy some peeps which are a newly found favorite, and I buy them. I carefully figure out that each peep is 32 calories and I vow that I will only eat them if they fit into my plan. Hmmm, if I only have 1/2 cup of rice, I can have 2 more peeps. I actually considered (for a moment) going over my calories and ruining my perfect month. After regaining my senses, I realized...I have issues. Peeps issues.

Am I alone??

Isn't amazing how addictive those :censored: things are?! Really, they're nothing but SUGAR...marshmallows are just corn syrup and the colored junk on the top is just pink (or yellow) sugar.

Maybe some visualization would help...every time you want to eat one of those things, picture yourself sitting on the floor with a spoon, eating out of a 5 lb. bag of sugar. Doesn't that sound gross? Doesn't it sound like it would make your teeth fall out and send you into a diabetic coma? Ugh.

I hate Peeps.

My parents used to buy them for me just to see what I would do with them. So, I invented Peeps Torture. Do you know with a little bit of water and a microwave, Peeps can grow into the size of a bowling ball? Did you know that I still have a perfectly formed 3 year old peep glued to my computer moniter and it shows NO SIGNS OF MOLD??? If that vision doesn't stop you from wanting to consume them, I don't know what will.

02-26-2003, 05:50 PM
Ok - 3 years old and no mold...hmmmmm. That vision might do it.

peeps...maybe not!!! :D

Aren't Peeps the cutest little sugar bombs ever??? If you're really interested, there is an official Peeps Website!


Maybe you could find info there about Peeps addiction?

Hello Everyone!

The peeps don't call to me ~ for me it is those blasted Cadbury cream eggs. There is one good thing about those, they are not available all year round ~ only at easter time.

If we're talking "limited time only"/ seasonal candy. I LOVE mint M&M's , only available during December. And this december I couldn't even find them!! I once ate a 2 pound bag of them by myself.

Sandi, boy I can relate. Those little yellow chicks are my absolute favorite Easter candy!!! I even noticed some around Christmas shaped like Snowmen. (didn't buy any though :) )

Jessica, don't you know that the best way to eat a Peep is STALE!!!! If I get too desperate this year (I'm not going to buy any), I may be asking you to FedEx that sucker off your computer!

I made it through Christmas without very much candy, so now I just need to make it through Easter! It can be done!

Any chance we can not go to a store for the next 2 months? :chin: I wish I could just avoid it but..........we'll see.

I hate Peeps (sorry)

But what I LOVE are the Reeses Peanut Butter Easter eggs! I've got to stay out of the candy section...

Anyone else like those?

02-26-2003, 07:47 PM
Peeps have to be the most repulsive thing ever invented (sorry :) )

Cadbury eggs on the other hand... pure heaven. They are already in all the gas stations, sitting right next to the cash register. It is PURE TORTURE every time I have to get gas. Good grief, I can't wait for this holiday to be over with! :lol:

02-26-2003, 08:20 PM
never tried peeps..

maybe it was that annoying commerical!

02-26-2003, 11:02 PM
Ugh. I can't stand Cadbury eggs....that sugar filling makes me physically ill! I LOVE those fruit and nut eggs, though!

Me! My favorite Easter Candy is the PB eggs. Peanut butter is my diet weakness food, and a big part of the reason I gained so much back after going off phentermine. Mmmm, peanut butter. :ink:

My other favorite is the Cadbury Mini-Eggs. :T Also, every Easter my aunt makes a cake in the shape of a lamb w/coconut sprinkled all over the frosting. And every year its head falls off. :lol:

I hate peeps. Although I have eaten peeps while drinking a Pepsi. Wooooooo!!!!! :high:

02-27-2003, 10:32 AM
Yes! The PB eggs are my favorite candy too. I also love the little white chocolate rabbits. It's so unfair, the stores just took out their Valentine's candy, and now they have the Easter candy out already. I think there's a conspiracy to keep me fat :D

Jo, that would be my conspiracy. If I can make the rest of the world fat, I would look skinney. :)

Yikes ... you guys are funny.

Personally, I never liked peeps ... I have a thing for the Russel Stover "coconut nests", but I pick out the three jelly beans (eggs) and toss those ... I'm not into sugary or fruity candy at all ... for me it's chocolate, nuts, coconut and peanut butter! (not ALL at the same time!)

03-03-2003, 12:45 AM
ok, so after having my fill (Saturday) I vowed not to buy them. Then at meijers, I am walking down the aisle and I come up to the biggest peeps display I have EVER seen. I swear they went all the way up to the ceiling. Yellow and pink and purple. I just stood there and stared. my husband had to drag me away, i just keep saying "look at all the peeps!" :dizzy:

And no, I did not buy any. :D

Congrats on leaving the peeps in the store, Sandi! :D
