I eat a lot of candy and I don’t want to stop. On the other hand, I try to avoid drowning myself in sugar. Because of this sugar intake concern, I picked up “Sugar-Free Peeps with Splenda,” on my last trip to the drug store (because clearly these are the epitome of health). But, I was curious and wanted to try.
They are in the classic globular, chick formation (none of this bunnies or flower shaped nonsense) and come three in a pack. For those who are not avid Peep eaters, the regular peeps come in rows of five, so at first I felt cheated two peeps. Then read the back which warned that excessive consumption could have a laxative effect. So, perhaps the people at the Peep People know what they’re doing- at least in the quantity department.
Overall effect of the Splenda Peep Experience:
1. Like putting a sweet cotton ball in my mouth.
2. Greasy weirdness going on
3. NOT A PEEP NOT A PEEP!
4. Takes an uncomfortable amount of time swallow
5. CLEARLY I would not want more than three of these anyway
Moral of the Story: If you are able, stick with the real stuff and use self control.
