In order to get the full depth of the story I have to go back if you years.
My story starts on Christmas day in 2013. I was on the phone with my then boyfriend, and we got on the subject of Easter. He told me
“Is it sad that the only reason I like Easter is because of the poops?”
I had no idea what he was talking about so I asked him to elaborate.
His response was, “poops, you know those sugary things that are shaped like chicks! They’re all marshmallow and stuff.”
I then proceeded to laugh for about 15 minutes straight before I could compose myself enough to explain to him that the proper term for that candy was peeps.
Fast forward to a few months ago. I explained this story to my current partner and he had no idea what peepps were. So I bought some for him to try this weekend.
I excitedly ran up to him with an unopened box of peeps for him to try. I open the box and handed him one, he ate them and then exclaimed, “I haven’t had these in years! I thought they were called puffs!”
I was speechless, I had no idea what to say. My mother thinks I pick very deprived people to bring home LOL my question still stands, what is the proper name for these delicious candies, the world may never know.
