Review: Peeps Valentine's Day Treats!

Back in December I shared with you that we love Peeps! Then we tried Peeps dipped in Chocolate... consider our lives changed!!!

Peeps Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Crème Flavored Chicks are probably one of the best treats I've ever tasted. You get the sugary taste of strawberry & Peep marshmallow mixed with the sweetness of dark chocolate. Let's just say my husband and I were fighting over these!!!  We had even more fun when friends came over this weekend and I brought out a sampling of these new treats. Our friends (who also declared themselves Peep fans) were blown away by the combination of marshmallow and chocolate. And at or around $2 - this would be a great Valentine's Day (or any day treat!)

 One of our other favorites, is the individually wrapped Peeps Chocolate Covered Raspberry Hearts. These were similar to the chocolate dipped strawberry creme chicks but with more of a chocolate kick. Each bite is of raspberry marshmallow and chocolate combined into one perfectly sweet treat.  So delicious! These retail for under $1, but looks and taste much more expensive!

 We also like the Peeps Chocolate Mousse Marshmallow Bears - these are a traditional marshmallow Peep but with a chocolate flavor twist. It was a nice sweet treat - and would look so cute on top of a cup of hot cocoa! Not into chocolate? Try the Peeps Marshmallow hearts! These fluffy, pink sugared hearts are your quintessential Peep variety. Pastel & sweet, and a perfect treat!

We were thrilled by all of Peeps Valentine's Day Selections - I also love that the different shapes, flavors and styles for each holiday are a perfect way to dress up your holiday treats. Why not add a peep to your cupcakes (as shown below) or skewer a bunch of peeps and make a beautiful (and delicious) Valentine's Day bouquet or centerpiece! How cute would that look for a party or special dinner at home?!

Other fun Peeps Valentine's Day Treats:
  • Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate (3 ct)
  • Strawberry Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)
  • Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)
  • Sugar-Free Marshmallow Hearts (3ct)
Valentine's Day Peeps are a new and delicious treat ! Why not skip the traditional box of chocolates and try something new?! I have seen these in many grocery & drugstores this year, and I may have to pick up a couple more before the holiday is over!
