Should you eat Peeps fresh or stale? - 04-20


Peeps may “always be in season,” but they are an Easter candy staple. Every spring, yellow, pink, purple and blue chicks and bunnies line the shelves like sparkling figurines, waiting anxiously to be taken home. Most Peeps fans prefer to eat each of their chicks immediately after opening the package—a marshmallow is best when fresh. Others say that like a fine wine, Peeps are best enjoyed after they’ve aged a bit, preferring them stale. What do you think?
