I look forward to Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews-flavored Peeps Marshmallows from Just Born now that it has gotten Hot Tamales and Mike and Ike flavors out of the way. (Spotted by Robbie at Target.)
This Walmart-exclusive flavor of the Easter perennial brings the classic soda into marshmallow form.
It has probably been two decades since I last drank Dr Pepper, but when I smelled the carton of burgundy chicks, I could almost feel the carbonation in my mouth. Yep, that’s a Dr Pepper scent!
When I eat them, the flavor is diluted. It still tastes like Dr Pepper, but marshmallow is more prominent. Oh, and if you’re wondering, there’s no caffeine in the ingredients.
Dr Pepper diehards (and there are a lot of them) will probably want a stronger flavor. However, these are tame and safe enough that you could put them in Easter baskets for the whole family and everyone would be pleased with them. (As long as they like Peeps in general, that is.)
Back in 2018, I reviewed Peeps mystery flavors, and I guessed with 30 percent confidence that one of the flavors was Dr Pepper. I was wrong (it was blue raspberry), but I can’t help but wonder if my review gave Just Born the idea for this year’s product.
Dr Pepper is a worthy addition to the selection of flavored Peeps, even if the flavor could be stronger.
