These are a candy entirely new to the market this year: Peeps Peepsters. I first say this bag and was confused at first. I had no idea what these things were. So I ended up buying a bag and taking them home to start a tasting session. I do have to commend the designers of the packaging for this candy. They did a marvelous job of keeping the look of the Marshmallow Peeps packaging and style into a bag candy. It feels Eastery and fun.
So, these Peepsters are individually wrapped in colorful foil wrappers in the bag. They’re a little larger than a Rolo. The base is about the size of a quarter and there chocolate has a peep stamped on the top. Again, the candy is very eye-catching.
They smell very sweet and marshmallowy for a lack of a better word. It’s a sweet smell with hints of vanilla and cotton candy.
So as you can see in the photo, these Peepsters have a interior of marshmallow. The chocolate walls are thick, and the marshmallow interior is rather small. The flavor of it, however, permeates throughout the candy. It has this wonderful, creamy vanilla flavor that blends beautifully with the smooth and sweet chocolate. So this candy has a very sweet flavor, so it’s not for everyone. But it does do a great job of blending chocolate, marshmallow together. It’s funny because you don’t really get marshmallow texture at all, just flavor. And it’s wonderful mix of chocolate/vanilla for the taste.
I’m a fan of these, and when I shared them with my boyfriend, so was he. So much so in fact that he’s finished off the first bag pictured here, and went out and bought another bag of the milk and one of the dark (yes, these come in dark chocolate too, and they’re also really good). I liked to have a few of these with a cup of coffee since they’re so sweet. So in short, big fan of these. Bravo Just Born.
