There was a bit of a commotion at dinner the other night when it was discovered — by way of unsolicited confession — that someone had absconded with a peep belonging to a different someone.
The marshmallow kind of peep, at once glittering seduction and sensory abomination.
It was snatched from the freezer, for holiday legend holds that the fluffy but phony chick’s most savory qualities are enhanced at temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. As the confession unfolded, we were asked to believe that preserving the confection in such a state of frigidity made resisting temptation impossible. In fact, there may have been a moral obligation imposed to sever the head, then the tail, of the perky hen masquerading as a sort of arts and craft project gone inedibly awry.
It was, as detailed in the brief, a matter of justice.
In a sweet twist of springtime fate, WordCandy has its own new line of Spring Sugar Peeps. No hidden ingredients. No strange chemicals. No worries that someone took the jar of glitter and Elmer’s glue to your bag of Jet Puff marshmallows. Just beautiful new springtime images paired with great quotes and poetry lines.
And if someone sneaks yours out of the freezer, you don’t have to retaliate by throwing jelly bird eggs. You can just pop (or hop) on back to WordCandy and grab yourself another. We have ready-made candies lined up behind our WordCandy Tumblr candy counter, or if you like the fun of building your own, visit us at WordCandy the App.
