What is the International Delight Limited Edition Peeps Creamer?
Born to delight caffeine-addicts everywhere, this creamer without borders exists to bring the cuteness of Just Born’s famous springtime chicks into your drab and dreary cup o’ joe.
How is it?
Crazy premise aside, this concept isn’t as insane as it sounds. Peeps, divisive as they are, are basically super-sweet marshmallows, and the addition of marshmallows to any hot beverage is a definite plus in my book.
On its own, the creamer tastes reminiscent of the fluffy treats, with predominant flavors of sugar and vanilla coming through. Even so, I didn’t get a distinctly “Peeps” vibe while I was sipping on it, and I think I know why. Without their characteristic dusting of sugar, Peeps aren’t much different from Kraft Jet-Puffed. Lacking that signature coating, this is just a green, marshmallow-flavored creamer.
The Peeps theme became even more lost when I added it to an actual cup of coffee. While good, it didn’t really taste like marshmallows anymore, and I could have easily mistaken it for French Vanilla if I hadn’t known better.
Besides the packaging itself, I’m not so sure on how this is supposed to make my coffee cuter, since it didn’t impact its appearance any differently than my typical addition of almond milk does. What’s more, I found its slightly greenish hue to be quite unsettling at first, and I actually sniffed the bottle before tasting it to make sure I hadn’t grabbed an expired bottle on accident.
Is there anything else you need to know?
I liked adding this to hot chocolate more than I did in coffee. Hot chocolate + liquid marshmallow + mini marshmallows on top = liquid bliss!
Although the marketing at play here is probably more unique than the actual product is, I would say that this is still worth picking up if you’re on the hunt for a decent coffee add-in. Just close your eyes while you pour it out so you won’t think about the color.
