In honor of the talk on candy I’m giving next week (for more info, go here) and the fact that Marshmallow Peeps will soon start appearing on store shelves, I’ve busted out this little piece of ephemera from 2006. I hosted a party at my home at which I made a dozen different types of marshmallows. Inspired by my love of Peeps, I decided to try out some “new” potential peep flavors.
I invited a panel of my friends over and had them vote on their favorites: they used a scale from one to five, with one being the worst and five being the best. This above participant was rather kind; on other ballots Saffron and Curry peeps didn’t fare so well, while Honey, Maple and Rosewater scored consistently high.
