Every so often a product comes along that I know that I will hate, though I still have to take a bite of the thing, spit it out and wax eloquently about my thoughts and feelings regarding what I just experienced.

This is one of those times.

First of all, I honestly really don’t know why a product like this exists. Did some individual say, “Hey, I want to enjoy the convenience of fast food with none of the actual original flavor but instead a mass of sugary, fruity gelatinous marshmallow?” because that’s the only reason I could legitimately see. Nope, it looks like this it just one of the candies that exists solely as a quirky novelty. Read the rest of this entry »

I vividly remember my first time attending summer camp, experiencing a entire week away from the comforts of home. On the second night, the counselors summoned all of us to the fire pit for what I assumed would be an innocent campfire session with singing and stories about murdering children. Everyone was silent as the counselors decided our fate. We all gasped as they tore open the bags of smuggled, white puffy contraband and proclaimed, “We’re going to be playing a little game of Chubby Bunny.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the term, I’ll let Urban Dictionary do the honors:

“A game played by two or more players. One person at a time places a marshmallow in their mouths and then says “Chubby Bunny”. This is repeated, one marshmallow at a time, repeating “Chubby Bunny” each time. Players turn is over when they can no longer say “Chubby Bunny” or spit out the marshmallow.” Read the rest of this entry »

You can’t see the forest for the Peeps.

You know in romantic comedies when the leading man focuses in on the dream girl, time slows down and you know that’s the girl he’s going marry? That was me with Peeps (sadly, I cannot marry a Peep). I knew I would review them sometime within the life of this blog, but just didn’t know when. I feel they’re they’re a perfect candidate for Clearance Cuisine – holidays come and go, but hundreds of Peeps remain on stores shelves, waiting to be eaten.

Now, I’ve eaten lots of Peeps in my life. I know what they taste like. But they’re just something like a marshmallow coated in colored, granulated sugar and manufactured into a different shape for every major holiday that’s just downright endearing.

I wasn’t planning on buying any in the near future until the “90% OFF ALL HOLIDAY MERCHANDISE” sign caught my eye at Big Lots. Coupled with my 20% off coupon, this brought each box to 8 cents a piece. I grabbed the six remaining boxes and the box that they cam in and hauled my bounty to the cash register.
