Peeps now available covered in chocolate


Totally scoured the Easter candy wall at the Midtown Rainbow for the new chocolate covered Peeps, but no go. Not yet at least. They'll be coming in both milk and dark chocolate flavors, apparently in chick version only. The Huffington Post compiled a couple early reviews, one of which sums it up as "not that far off from eating a Valomilk, Mallo Cup, or another cheap drugstore candy," and another that characterizes them as "far lighter and less latexy than I experience with Peeps." Mmm, latexy. We have just one question: Will the Pi Press (and the Washington Post) allow them entry into their annual Peeps diorama contests?

Anyone out there seen the little guys in the cities yet?
