I don’t know why I keep punishing myself. I am not a fan of Peeps, but like many people around the holidays, I get lured into eating all kinds of junk that I wouldn’t normally eat just because it has some festive gimmick flavor.
Case in point:
Candy cane-flavor Peeps.
Let me spare you the effort of buying them yourself and tell you that they are gross and don’t taste anything like candy cane or peppermint. They taste like regular Peeps. That is, cheap, rapidly dissolving marshmallows that have been rolled in sugar.
They smell like peppermint though. Or at least the packaging does. When I sniff the Peeps themselves, they have no scent. Yet when I sniff the package, there’s definitely a Scope mint mouthwash aroma going on.
This product fails because it doesn’t taste like candy canes, it doesn’t smell like candy canes and it’s Peeps.
