Peeps with splenda are not worth it

Posted on: March 15, 2009

While I was out running errands on Saturday morning I decided to pick up some candy for my Easter baskets.  As I was eying all the little chocolate bunnies all I could think was how I would love to bite off their heads, fill the hollow bunny with peanut butter, stick it in the freezer and then enjoy it as my own homemade version of a peanut butter bunny!

I then remembered that I gave up chocolate for lent and headed to the peeps and bunnies marshmallow section.  Four peeps are only two points and I think that is a pretty good snack if you are having a sugar attack.  Since I enjoy peeps, I was excited when I saw sugar free peeps with splenda, thinking that I could then eat more for less points!

Warning!  Do NOT Buy!

Warning! Do NOT Buy!

I do not normally eat splenda so purchased the peeps not really knowing what I was in for.  Well…I got home and ripped the packaging open because I was so excited. I was quickly disappointed when I bit the little peeps head off.  It tasted like a blander version of the original.  I know that weight watchers is a life change and it is not supposed to be a diet.  I made a decision that I will never change over to anything that contains splenda. Pure sugar it is for me.

Don’t worry.  Later than day I purchased the real sugar version of peeps over at Stop & Shop.  We used the scan it and bag it.  Have you looked into that yet?

Random facts about Peeps:

1. It takes 6 minutes to make one Peeps chick.

2. Original Peeps have a shelf life of 2 years.

3. More than 5 million Peeps are produced each day.

4. Peeps have been the most popular nonchocolate Easter candy in the U.S. for more than a decade.  Take that, jelly beans!

ROFL @ I bit the little peeps head off. I guess you’re another victim of the Weight Watchers backlash.. It happened to me too.. but we live and we learn.. Just when we try to cheat the system.. it somehow manages to get back at us. =P

Hi Angeluh,

I am so excited that people (other than the people I force to) are reading my blog. How did you stumble upon it?
