Another myth exposed - Easter JellyBeans do not come from Peeps.

R_I..are you catching whats going on?

as for peeps, skip the peeps, just take the marshmallow creme right out of the jar, apply to the tail of long hair creatures dancing on your lawn, then send them home.Apply Easter grass or let nature takes it's course. Listen for the screeches throughout the day. Easter fun for the whole family.

That is one long line of nasty you got going there wgo.

Peeps -- yuck.

And to the dude who answered "Sweets are not good for you," I say, answer the question! It is a yes or no question, not looking for your opinion on sweets in general. geez

Steve Ortiz is the Chairman of the Tribal Council of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation. He has a job and is good at it. He is very well respected.

I don't like them...it is a texture thing for me. But my sister adored them. And I had great fun poking thru the plastic to smoosh her peeps before she got a chance to enjoy that sugary hot mess.

Anyway, Steve just made that up. Oh, he's a chairman alright. He straightens out the chairs down at City Hall after the Commision meetings.

I'm applying for a job as Chairman Doula of the Easter Peep Committee. Because I need a job. That's need, not want.

I always buy a box but never even open them. They're up there with Circus Peanuts in my book (not a valid candy).

A friend of mine used to 'peep' her friends. Getting peeped was when you woke up and found all of your car windows completely covered with Easter Peeps. They stick to glass pretty well if you get them damp. Don't put them on the painted surfaces, though...probably not good for the paint.

Thanks Bob! Great vid. I had a feeling that's what an Easter Peep was. Ret, you're right . Coffee makers are really skewed. Are they measuring in cups or shot glasses? I usually use a shot glass anyway. The metric system messed everything up. Instead of a fifth, my whiskey bottles all say 750ml. My coffee maker holds and exact fifth of whiskey. Do not ever put anything stronger than 100 proof whiskey in your coffee maker. I put some Everclear 180 proof in there once and KABOOM! I still have scars on the back of my scalp.

Everywhere in the world a cup = 8 oz. Except when it comes to coffee makers. Fill it to the 10 cup mark, and you only get 4 cups of coffee.

Gaw-- I didn't even like them when I was a kid! As disappointing, disgusting candy, they are in the same league with those hideous orange peanut-shaped candies (which, incongruously, lack any peanut flavor). Or those orange- and black-wrapped Halloween candies--the ones cheap people give out.

My favorite Easter candies: Cadbury's mini-eggs! These are simply a nice, smooth chocolate egg (maybe an inch long) with a thin, hard shell--specked blue, pink, yellow, and white. They come in a purple bag. I also love Jelly Bellies (sans licorice!), but never much cared for "regular" tasteless, sweet jellybeans.

OK, it would appear we have different concepts of just what a peep may or may not be. But what I want to know, is what does a chairman do? Just chairman? Not chairman of the board of party chairman....what?

Whipped corn syrup and refined sugar with yellow dye 13 just reminds me of what makes America great.

I just can't wait to bite into a crusty sticky sugar mess that sticks my insides together. It is like they could scrape the sides of the mixing bowl clean and add some stuff off the floor and it would be the same. Yuk. Have any of you ever seen the food channel's documentary of how those things are made?

Easter peeps are only in it for the ham. They won't even go fishing with you even if they are from Oklahoma.

I have no clue what an Easter peep is.

Not so much.
Too many peeps means drama overshadows the meaning of Ostara.

And BTW, censors. Don't EVEN start pinking people for straying off topic on this one. If you're gonna ask a yes or no question, at least don't make it a stupid one.

Yah, amazing. Are you ever gonna learn? If you're a rich hippie and you wanna shop at the Merc, cool. But quit asking the damn OTS question there. You will never, ever get diverse answers. These coffee-shop-cool people are of a oneness of mind, Much like the Hutaree and Hare Krishnas.

Wha? What the hell is an Easter Peep. I guess I'll say yes, but I'm much more of a window peeper. Is this about peeping in windows on Easter? Big deal. I'd be doing it anyway.
