Peeps are going Hollywood
April 6th, 2021 under Sweets. [ Comments: none ]

When we were kids, there was only yellow, pink, and blue Peeps. Now, they have different flavors, their own cereal, coffee creamer, Oreo cookie, milk, Pepsi, and so much more. Therefore, it would make sense that someone in Hollywood would decide to make a movie about them.

According to Deadline, Wonder Street bought the film and TV rights to the sugar-covered marshmallow candy, and they already have their first production in the works. It is an animated movie being described as “Trolls meets Smurfs.”

“Peeps Chicks and Bunnies have been ingrained in American pop culture for nearly seven decades due to their instantly recognizable shapes and fan-favorite marshmallow taste, making them the perfect characters to bring to life on the big screen,” said Keith Domalewski, Director of Marketing & Consumer Engagement at Just Born. “We hope the new Peeps film spreads sweetness to families across the country and provides inspiration for fans to express their ‘Peepsonality’ in new ways.”

Am I the only one who was hoping it would be a live-action Horror movie where they come to life and kill all the people who destroy them in microwaves, acid, and other torturous ways? Can you tell I spent the weekend watching the same five Easter Horror movies again? I want something new, and a scary Peeps film would be scrumptious!


Krispy Kreme gives us two Oreo Donuts
April 5th, 2021 under Sweets. [ Comments: none ]

Do you like Krispy Kreme Donuts and Oreo cookies? Well, the two have come together until April 18th with two different donuts.

OREO® Cookie Glazed Doughnut – the Original Glazed® Doughnut covered in rich OREO® Cookie Glaze, filled with Cookies and KREME™, and finished with an icing drizzle and OREO® Cookie pieces.

OREO® Cookie Over-the-Top Doughnut – an OREO® Cookie Glazed Doughnut topped with Cookies and KREME™ filling, drizzled with chocolate icing and finished with an OREO® Cookie wafer.

The two of them go well with OREO® Mocha Chiller, which is a frozen espresso mixed with crushed cookie bits and topped with whipped cream.

I don’t know about you, but I know where I am going to satisfy my sweet tooth today. Plus, I get a free glazed donut. I can’t wait to get my sugar high.


Pringles gets into the lip balm business
April 1st, 2021 under Sweets. [ Comments: none ]


There are so many yummy flavors of lip balms out there, but there is one that has been missing. Not anymore. That is because Pringles created a savory lip balm that tastes like Salt and Vinegar. I can’t wait to apply it, especially after I eat the real thing and the salt dries up my smackers.

Wait, there is another benefit to it. Now you can get the taste of potato chips without all of those calories and fat. I can’t wait for this to come out already. I just hope it tastes better than Mac & Cheese one.

While the latter exists, the former one is sadly just an April Fool’s Day joke. Maybe we can change their mind?


Would you drink Peepsi?

Yesterday, I saw a commercial for mango-flavored Pepsi, and I thought that sounded so gross. This morning I woke up to discover they are making a flavor that is even grosser than that.

“After what has been a very difficult year, many consumers are looking for new things to smile about. So, to celebrate the start of springtime, Pepsi collaborated with PEEPS® to develop a limited batch of its first-ever marshmallow cola. This PEPSI x PEEPS® collaboration will be available in three bright colors through a distinctive mini-can design and will most certainly have fans buzzing all season long,” said Todd Kaplan, VP Marketing – Pepsi. “We know our consumers love our limited product drops, and we believe that PEPSI x PEEPS® will deliver an iconic and delicious pairing that has the potential to become a fan favorite.”

Does this sound so good to you that you are going to run to the store to get it? Sit back down because it is only available via a contest for the time being. In order to enter, you need to send in a picture of yourself enjoying Peeps and send it to @PEPSI, and tag it with #HangingWithMyPEEPS and #PepsiSweepstakes on Twitter and Instagram by March 31st.

Maybe if enough people enter, they will decide to sell it so that we can all have a sip. We will need something to get rid of the taste of Pepsi Mango from our mouths.


Dunkin’ Donuts gets into the jellybean business
March 4th, 2021 under Fast Food, Sweets. [ Comments: none ]

Dunkin’ Donuts has been expanding its brand over the last few years. They have ventured into the cereal business, much to the delight of my belly, and now they are teaming up with Frankford Candy for jellybeans based on their iced coffee flavors.

Brian Gilbert, Vice President of Retail Business Development at Dunkin’, says, “Jelly beans are such a classic and popular part of the holiday and seasonal celebration. We are thrilled to team up with Frankford Candy, the leader in confections that have delighted Americans for decades, to create a fun and sweet new way for people to enjoy the great taste of Dunkin’.”

What flavors will be in the $3.49 bag that will be available at Walgreen’s and Rite-Aid? They will taste like Dunkin’s signature iced coffees like French Vanilla, Caramel Latte, Butter Pecan, Toasted Coconut, and Hazelnut.

My mouth is already wet with desire for them. Too bad we have to wait until Easter to eat them. Even sadder is that they will only be available for a limited time. Maybe if we eat enough of them; they will make it a permanent thing?
