My Annual Parade o’ Peeps


I miss many things about being the Editorial Director for Maker Media. One of these would be the annual Peeps round-up I did on the MAKE website every year. No, seriously. I have something of an unhealthy fascination with these unholy food-colored, sugar-coated marshmallow death wads. And by the number of bizarre things that people choose to do with them (and brag about over the internet), I am not alone. I understand they can also be eaten.

Here are links to several of my previous-year Peeps pieces:

And fresh as a new rack o’ Peeps for 2014, here’s a video of a red-hot ball of nickel having its way with some Peeps. I can smell the toasted marshmallow from here.
