Hold onto them until next year. The shelf-life of those suckers is measured in years, not months.

If you are truly a serious sugar addict, you could make a Dr. Peeper float. Or not?

Lol. At the library I worked we had Peep Diorama contests. I did a War of the Worlds with Peeps on sticks and general mayhem all around my shoe box and I got to burn and melt a few. They harden nicely and I made trophies for winners by spray painting a few of those dried up mini monsters gold and silver. The kids were very creative using book titles etc. like Harry Peeper.

Peeps are best when left to go stale. They get nice and chewy! Watermelon is my fav!

My wife is a wonderful person. I love her dearly. But she *likes* peeps. To eat.

And Gato is encouraging her. Inconceivable!

Sticky food things in the wrong places is one of my great minor horrors. That pincushion is the worst of a nice little gallery of distress.

But imaginative--yes, full marks for that!

It seems most of you guys are heathens, you don't like Peeps? How are you going to get your daily dose of Red Dye #3?

Float a peep on you cup of hot chocolate. You don't need to buy cocoa mix with mini marshmallows afterall. How about peep s'mores? MORE SUGAR!

Would you feel differently about peeps if they looked like gatos?

All but the last are the only valid types of uses for Peeps. They certainly cannot be considered "tasty " ,and " edible " is only relative. Foxglove and Nightshade are " edible " but I'd also advise against it...

My kids still laugh... my mother-in-law thought peeps were cute and something humans would actually eat, so she gave them to all our kids. The kids obviously wouldn't have anything to do with them, so naturally, they gave one to the dog. He sniffed at it and turned away. Called back and offered it again, he felt he had to be polite, so he took it gingerly between his front teeth. Then, he wandered over to the woods next to the yard, dug a hole, dropped it in, and buried it. Like you do with inedible garbage. A year later, the exact same result.
