Fresh Peeps are Bad...Top 50, Part 5

Last night Claire and I had the pleasure of eating the Peeps that we cut open to get stale a full 2 weeks before Easter. They were wonderful. Fully of chewy goodness. I asked Claire why she thought stale Peeps were so much better than fresh ones...

Claire: "I don't know. I think it has to do with the airiness. Yea, that is probably it. They taste more airy."
Bogart: "Mmmm hummmm." Nodding in agreement. "And who does not like air."


If you have to know, they were yellow flavor just like the picture.


Driving in the car last week, my Goddaughter says to her mom:

Emma: "Mom, Bogart is the best....what is he again?"
Stace: "Bogart? What is he to you?"
Emma: "Yes, what is he to me?"
Stace: "He is your Godfather."
Emma: "Oh yea. Mom, Bogart is the best Godfather ever."

How frigg'n blessed am I?


Top 50, Part 5

As a disclaimer, these songs are my favorite. I don't necessarily consider them the best songs ever, but they are songs that I turn the radio up EVERY TIME they come on. I sing them loud. I know all the words. They make me happy.

30. The Girls in their Summer Dresses - Airborne Toxic this song from a friend of mine in LA (Now in Boston)...Big fan, so thanks!

29. Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland...We used to watch Wizard of Oz over and over and younger siblings could not get enough. I could not get enough of Judy...I just am sad that she produced such a weird off-spring. But I can forgive her b/c of this song.

28. She's Mine - Brett Dennen...My buddy Neil introduced me to Brett Dennen last year. I have been hooked ever since. Sure, his politics are VERY DIFFERENT than mine, but his voice has a certain quality that makes it hard for me not to enjoy his music.

27. You'll Accomp'ny Me - Bob Seger...I think his Greatest Hits album has gotten more rotation in my car CD player than any other CD. Yup, pretty sure of it.

26. Stolen - Dashboard Confessional...What? I dig sappy love songs. And, well, she has. (As an aside, I saw the video for the first time yesterday and it was filmed about 2 miles from where I lived in SD. I like it even more now!)

Every season I think it will be the one where I'll try Peeps. Then...nope. I just can't!

My roommate in college loved peeps and circus peanuts.

Don't harsh the mellow.

April said...

I'm not a big Peep fan, but I love me some Cadbury Cream Eggs. All that sweet, sugary chocolate goodness... Mmmmm, it's like a party in your mouth. In England they sell a Cadbury Cream Egg candy bar. Year round, my friend. If it weren't for the lack of good dental care, I would totally move there.

Katelin said...

Your goddaughter is precious! So cute.

Chardsy said...

Airy food is delish! Haha

Laura B. said...

I love peeps...but haven't eaten one in probably three years. I like them stale cause they get kinda crunchy on the outside and they're chewier.

Amy said...

I love the story about your goddaughter - so sweet! Stale peeps are great.

Becky said...

Never heard of stale-ing up the peeps...but we do enjoy a good microwaved peep explosion.

Peep enlarges, turns to goo, and begins to resemble the elephant man...and just then...ding..they are done! (Sadly, though, their eyes are gone.)


Oh...and April...I have several boxes of Cadbury cream eggs I have been saving for you since joke. (Or should I say no yoke.)

Becky, the maid

Douchegirl said...

I love Dashboard Confessional. Great choice!
What is it about peeps? I just can't bring myself to eat them. Ew.

Bogart in P Towne said...

DKG - gotta do it. just make sure they are stale.

RS27 - Circus Peanuts are nasty...but in a good way.

April - Cream Eggs are just too sweet. Sounds funny when I am powering through some stale peeps.

Katelin - Thanks.

Chard - No doubt.

Laura - Bring 'em back into your life.

Amy - Nothing but the best for me!

Becky - Don't have a microwave...can't blow stuff up any more.

Douche - Ever get that not so fresh feelings? Just wonder'n.

Ok, Where Was I? said...

I know one person who eats peeps that way, and I thought she was crazy. I had no idea there were others.
