Is it just me or does anyone else have problems grasping the concept of sugar free Peeps? I mean, isn't that what Peeps are... sugar? That almost makes as much sense as marketing dehydrated water (just add water!).
We got a case of the Just Born sugar free confections in the store today with the Easter shipment and I opened it to read the label. I couldn't imagine what sugar free Peeps could possibly be made of. Maltitol, Isomalt, Polyglycitol, Sorbitol, Gelatin, Calcium Chloride, Flavors, Yellow #2, Sucralose, Potassium Sorbate and Carnauba Wax. It looks more like an EPA warning label than candy ingredients. All this for a savings of 12 calories per Peep (Sugar Free 20 vs. Regular 32).
But hey, my broken scale says I'm down to 140 pounds so I don't need to count calories. I'll have the original sugary Peep in yellow please.
Don't know why but for some reason while I was researching sugar free Peeps, I kept hearing a voice in the back of my head whispering "Soylent green is people!"
Even more random: Ever notice how Peeps look like Big Bird took a dump in Bert's Easter basket after over dosing on sugar? Even with that thought in mind I still have to have my Peeps fix every Easter.
