Pumpkin Spice Peeps. I tried these little guys and well, they were not what I was expecting. I didn’t read the fine print at the bottom that says “Flavored Marshmallow Dipped in White Fudge.” Do they do this with regular peeps that arrive around Easter time? After I took a look at the Peeps website, I discovered that some Peeps are, indeed, dipped although I don’t think I’ve ever had a Peep dipped in anything. Also, special Peeps are released for several different holidays.
It wasn’t what I expected, but, I liked them. I thought they tasted a lot like one would imagine pumpkin spice to taste. My husband thought they tasted more like a chai sort of treat. Either way, they were good and the white fudge was a nice touch. Three of my friends sent info about these over to me starting in mid-August (Thank you Tamara, TR and Heather!) and I have been curious about them. They were released August 31 exclusively at Target and sold in packs of three, as shown. I’m not sure how I feel about Easter candy in the fall, but, bottom line, Pumpkin Spice Peeps are sweet, sugary and delicious.
