Heaps of Peeps

People love Peeps! The marshmallow chicks and bunnys (and other characters for other holidays) are made by Just Born to fill Easter baskets. But Peeps are not just for eating. You can make them dance or fight, experiment with them, take them on trips, and use them for decoration or pranks. Recreating miniature scenes from life, pop culture, literature, and movies is the area where Peeps really shine!

Am I horrible for laughing at this one? The Day The Marshmallow Died: a plane crash kills Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Peeper. It's from Great Scenes in Rock and Roll History, as re-enacted by marshmallow peeps.

Some people love Peeps so much, they eat them before any projects are completed. Others swear that they taste better after six months. Some can't stand the taste at all, but will use them for other purposes. How do you feel about Peeps?
