Candy Cane Peeps, With or Without Chocolate


Last season Just Born released Candy Cane Peeps dipped in Chocolate. I was way into them. The marshmallow is still the traditional vanilla, but fine candy cane dust adheres to the facade. This adds just enough crunch to add some substance to the marshmallow- really nice. The candy cane flavor is present but subtle- also nice. The final bite of chocolate sets off the mint crunch perfectly. These are some of my very favorite Peeps. This year Just Born re-released the chocolate dipped chicks as well as a series of the candy cane chicks without the chocolate. These are tasty and fun for all the reasons listed above, but they do lack that final pizzazz that the chocolate lends. I'd still go for the chocolate-dipped any day.

* Special note: as mentioned in the previous post, I received these samples from Just Born, the makers of Peeps. Thanks, Just Born! Although I review the Peeps above, I do not give numbered scores to free samples so as to avoid any possibility of unfair scoring.
