  1. Yum!! – Did I read that right? “Peeps”, I say Peeps are a magical food? Ann!! What am I going to do with you?

    • Stale Peeps are one of my favorite foods, Didi! But I love them fresh too. Hubby bought me some Peep Valentine hearts, and I couldn’t wait for them to try out. I ate a sleeve every day until they were gone. O.o
