I'm not ashamed.................

to admit that I love Peeps!

I don't eat many sweets, but this time of year, I really crave these sugary little treats.
When I was young, I'd trade all of my chocolate bunnies and eggs from my Easter basket for my sister's Peeps. Of course, I always thought I got the best of that deal.
My favorite are yellow chicks, but they have to be fresh (if you touch their little head and it bounces back, they're good!)

So funny! My mother-in-law LOVES Peeps and every time i see them i think of her! And my nephew calls my father-in-law "Peep".
I am a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg freak :)!

I always wondered if anybody actually ate those things LOL. They don't do anything for me...though they do look really cute.

Give me a big ol' chocolate bunny to nibble away at the ears any day!

LoL I didn't think anyone ate those either! Hey but I will GLADLY trade you mine for the chocolate bunny!!

They are really cute though. So do you bite the heads off first? :(

hehe...I go for the ears on the bunnies.

Nancy, Love your new banner! Just beautiful!
I want to find the tiny bird egg jelly beans that we used to get when I was little! I don't remember peeps back then, but those really weird, giant, not really jelly beans, but egg shaped candies always seemed to pop up in our baskets and we would try to trade them away every year...Lol.

Hope you're feeling better and better every day!
