What are they?
More new Peeps for Easter in flavors that I’ve never thought of as “Easter” or “Spring.” One has lemon sherbet flavored marshmallow dipped in decadent creme flavored fudge. And the other has everything the previous sentence has, except replace “lemon” with “orange.” The fudge is what makes them “Delights.” It also makes them messy to eat on an unusually warm spring day.
How are they?
First of all, don’t eat the marshmallow part by itself, which means biting off the head. There are two reasons why you shouldn’t do that. One, I don’t taste much of either the lemon or orange. Two, it freaks the crap out of the other Peeps sitting in the plastic tray.
The packaging says the fruity flavor is in the marshmallow, but why is it that nibble, lick, or scalp off the fudge and eat it, it has more fruitiness than the squishy mallow? But only weirdoes are going to nibble, lick, or scalp off the fudge and bite only the head off. When eaten whole, both Peeps taste very much like their respective sherbets. I even taste a bit of dairy.
Is there anything else I need to know?
The sherbet-ness sticks around in the mouth for many minutes after finishing either one. Also, as much as like them, I don’t feel compelled to buy them again. Maybe that’s the case with all Peeps and why the brand keep coming out with new Peeps for Easter in flavors that I’ve never thought of as “Easter” or “Spring.”
It’s eerie how well Peeps replicated lemon and orange sherbet. They’re both really good and definitely worth a purchase. They’re only available for a limited time and who knows if they’ll be back next year. So enjoy them while you can.
