Only ones that look like Jesus. Then I eat too many and they get 'ressurected'.

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.

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

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