Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds.

A slightly early “Happy Easter” to those of you that celebrate Easter. This is one of those years when Easter and Passover actually do coincide, so this is also a slightly early Happy Passover.

Easter weekend is also one of those days that marks an unofficial start of Spring, particularly for those who are in more northerly climes. By this time in Chicago, the flowers are out and the weather is warm. It’s also the point where the longer days really start to kick in.

In Anchorage, April is either “Breakup” or “Mud Season”, if not both. Breakup because the frozen waterways literally break up. And it’s very, very muddy.

In Atlanta, we had a very rainy weekend. After all, April Showers are another hallmark of the season.

I’m sure this wasn’t the first time, but we noticed that there are pre-colored Easter eggs available in the grocery store. This just feels like cheating to me. Even my mom helped me color Easter eggs, in spite of Easter not being our holiday! What is the world coming to? LOLOLOL

In closing, my annual peek into the strange phenomenon that is Peeps!

Jurassic Peeps!

  1. Peeps are the only marshmallow candy my kids don’t care for at all. Some people love them, some not so much.

  2. When in doubt as to why the Peeps are there, explain that it’s art– but add something a little esoteric and useless to it. Your delivery is key: you must be rather serious and a bit hushed.

    “It’s an art installation. I dunno… My TA told us to do something on temporality or something. I’m not done yet, though… NO– don’t touch it. …Don’t touch it.”

    “It’s op-art.”
    *long, blank stare*

    “It’s a think piece. That coffeehouse down on Fullerton is hosting an exhibit for the ‘holiday..'” *dramatic use of air quotes*

    “Jesus, I thought that you of all people would get it.”
    *scoff; walk away in disgust*

  3. Haha. Peeps are both disgusting and glorious at the same time. I used to look forward to having them show up at Easter, and they were especially good when the outside got slightly crunchy, but the inside still soft.
    ( Haven’t had one in eons since they’re not vegetarian.)

    Speaking of Jurassic Peeps, the Washington Post used to have an annual Peeps diorama contest. People were so creative and it was great. Sadly, it got cancelled after a decade. (It moved to a smaller local paper, but not the same.)

  4. “What ARE Peeps anyway? Are they food? A toy? An abomination? Tell us!” Peeps are an important addition to any diet of Moon Pies and Cream Soda.

  5. Food AND toy…but to one babysitter AGES ago, they were a microwaveable TIME BOMB! Seriously…I TOLD her not to microwave it, but I was little so what did I know. 😉

  6. Peeps are food…colored sugar coated marshmallows shaped like chicks. In more recent years there have been different shapes available of the Peeps but the most common are the chicks and the most common color is yellow.

  7. Peeps are a decoration. Something I buy every year for a basket and the kids eat one, put the rest in a baggie and they eventually go in the trash.

  8. I love marshmallows, but Peeps are not my favorites because of that weird consistency – almost crunchy due to that weird sugar coating.

  9. They are definitely toys, as evidenced by your pictures 🙂 And while you can, technically, eat them, I’m not sure I’d call them food 🙂
