Peep Show!

Dear Sillies,

Since I'm not doing the A-Z Challenge this year, I thought I'd attract new followers through a suggestive post title. And could there be a more sacred week for a Peep Show? Passover starts on Monday night, 4/10. This celebration of freedom, with a focus on compassion for the oppressed, lasts for eight days. So Passover overlaps this year with Good Friday and Easter. Woohoo!

Now, the real reason for this post: chocolate samplings.
There's a chocolate covered Peep on the left, and a chocolate dipped macaroon* on the right. (*coconut cookie that's a traditional Passover dessert)

Adults tend to either hate or really hate Peeps. Aside from the outrageously loud, carcinogenic-like coloring and the annoyingly sweet, sticky innards, what's there to hate? I loved my Peep.
I devoured my Peep. The milk chocolate covering was yummy, as was the bright yellow marshmallow chick. And then it was gone. 

Next, the macaroon. The coconut, which I typically dislike, was fresh and rich and nicely textured and light and semi-sweet. I only wished it had been dipped in more chocolate. A LOT more chocolate. I barely tasted the chocolate, and this made me sad. 

I give the chocolate dipped Peep an 8, and the chocolate dipped macaroon a 7. With a total of 15 on a 1-10 scale, you're bound to have an extra sweet and sacred holiday week.

The minions on my placemats insisted on joining the Peep Show. (Not to worry, photo was taken before eating was completed.)

WARNING: The following Peep Show cannot be unseen. Please do not see it if you do not have a strong constitution. And for all of us in the United States, the constitution is weakening by the minute, so I suggest you close your eyes and move on. I'm posting this more for the Boycott American Women guy who's been trolling blogland for at least 6+ years and has 2 followers. Two!

I'm also posting this for all the people who drop by and say "Visit me" numerous times in various languages. Yet they never follow my blog or buy my books, which I'm kind enough to inform them of numerous times. However, they tend to praise me for my informative posts. Granted, I take credit for my achievements, but an educational blog is not one of them.

Have a great week, dears. Okay, you've been warned...

This one's for you, creepster peeps.

  1. We don't have peeps over here. For which I am probably grateful.
    This week my chocolate indulgence has been smothered over dried mango. Two of my favourite things. Together.
    Have a wonderful week - and year(s) to come.

    1. Mango is one of Mother Nature's best.
      A wonderful week plus to you too, EC. Thank you.

  2. I might try a Peep that was covered in black chocolate. I prefer it black and bitter, like Spike Lee. The Boycott American Women guy has left comments on my blog too! Always the same damned irritating comment.

    1. He can't think of more than one comment in 6+ years, GB.

      I prefer my chocolate dark, like my men. Wink.

  3. Chocolate marshmallow Peeps! None to be found here. We just taught some friends about "Peeps." Macaroons are popular here but I don't know if I can find my favorite chocolate macaroons dipped in chocolate.

    1. It's funny, Diane. I thought of you when I took the photo and I think of you when I think of the Minions. It's a compliment - to the Minions. =)

  5. I don't like peeps either but maybe covered in chocolate. I always love the choc covered marshmallow eggs/candy so maybe this would be basically the same.

    1. Egg candies are even better, JoJo. You're fine sticking with those.

  6. Well! The peep show was worth it, I must say!

  7. I love peeps unconditionally.
    I love them when they are fresh and fluffy.
    I love them when they are stale and chewy.
    I love them when are tough and squashed together.
    I love them whether they are yellow or pink or blue.
    I love them almost as much as I love you.

    1. That kind of peep is never good.
      It'd make you barf, it's understood.

  9. I've never had a chocolate-covered peep, but I bet I'd like it. There's something about that glittery grittery sugar that I love. Combine it with chocolate? Oh, yes. I enjoyed peeping at you, too.

    Love,
    Janie

  10. I don't care much for Peeps, but maybe I would like them better if they were coated in chocolate. The macaroon sounds yummy too. And I agree, more chocolate couldn't help but make anything better.

  14. My Mothernlaw loves peeps! I always get her the unusual flavors that they come up with every year. She likes to heat them on a fork over the stove and make smores from them.
    I am not a fan really but would be willing to try the chocolate ones for sure! Super cute peepshow CHicky! Happy Passover

  15. The chocolate dipped macaroon looks tasty. As soon as I get over the plague and get my sense of taste back I am going to find one. I used to buy the occasional coconut just to have a tasty snack now and then. I'm too lazy now to process one.

    1. It's a lot of work. The macaroon form is much more user friendly. =)
      Be well, Jono, and Happy Easter.

    1. Hand over hand? An eye for an eye? How nosey of them. They kneed-ed to. Do you think they split hairs over it? Did any of them get foot in mouth disease? Oh, Al, look what you started.

  17. I have always liked peeps! Everyone else in my family hates them.
    That "boycott american women" idiot, has left several comments on my blog over the last 2-3 years. I've never published any, but he sure is persistent. Oh, thanks for the "peeps."

    1. It's funny that he's still around. Now, relative to the greater scene, he's a benign annoyance. And over all these years, he has 2 twitter followers. (DT and Bannon, perhaps?).
      Thanks and you're welcome, Pat.

  18. When I was very little, living on a medieval Portuguese truck farm, I would announce to my grandma,"Preciso ir peeps!", and be excused to the bathroom. This new definition is going to take some getting used to.

    1. Haha. I'm glad someone caught Trump's grope. Or I'm glad someone was bold enough to praise him for it. You make me laugh, Anthony. Thank you!
