PEEPS and Company "Sweet Gear" Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.




There is no denying that I am a huge fans of PEEPS.  If you follow my blog, then you probably remember seeing posts this past Easter about ways to incorporate marshmallow PEEPS into recipes, DIY home decor, centerpieces and more.  These posts were not only share through the PEEPS social media channels, but were some of my most read posts of all time.  So, it is safe to assume that I am not alone when it comes to loving these delicious tasting marshmallow PEEPS.  :-)

Right now, I am thinking about the PEEPS that will be available for both Halloween and Christmas. Mmm, I am getting hungry just thinking about them.  




Santa already knows that I would be a happy girl if I woke up on Christmas morning and found a stocking full of flavored PEEPS. :-)  


How about you?  Do you have a favorite PEEPS flavor?  Up until last week, my favorite PEEPS flavor was their Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Crème Flavored Chicks.


These marshmallow flavored PEEPS are out of this world.  With the pairing of sweet strawberries with creme, and then dipped in creamy milk and dark chocolate, this is one ooey gooey treat I don't mind getting my fingers sticky enjoying. :-)  But, like I said, this was my favorite flavor up until recently.  Now, I am a fan of their two new flavors, introduced this summer, Sweet Lemonade Flavored Marshmallow Chicks and Bubble Gum Flavored Marshmallow Chicks. 

"NEW Sweet Lemonade Flavored Marshmallow Chicks  blend sweet, fluffy marshmallow with the taste of fresh squeezed lemonade for a truly refreshing summer treat. And, with every purchase, you can help us support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.."

 

"NEW Bubble Gum Flavored Marshmallow Chicks combine classic bubble gum taste with scrumptious marshmallow to create the perfect
treat that you can chew anytime. And, it's not only OK to swallow Bubble Gum PEEPS®, its encouraged."


Have you stumbled upon these in stores, picked up and tried a pack?  If so, what did you think?  I would never have thought about creating a bubble gum flavored PEEPS, let alone a lemonade one.  But, thanks to samples that were recently sent to me from the folks at PEEPS and CO., along with some fun PEEPS swag for the family, I was able to try these two new flavors, and fall in love with them. ;-)  The Bubble Gum flavored Chicks tasted just like a piece of chewing bubble gum, except it was in a marshmallow type consistency.  As for the lemonade flavored chicks, the lemonade flavor was not overpowering by any means.  Yes, you may pucker for the first few bites, as you are not expecting a lemon flavor.  But, after that, you will find yourself reaching for another, then another, until they are all gone.

Out of the two new summer flavors sent from the folks at PEEPS and Co. to try, I have to say that my favorite was the lemonade one, while my girls were fans of the bubble gum chicks. And, when we weren't sneaking these tasty flavored marshmallow PEEPS, the girls and I were enjoying the fun Peeps and Co. swag sent from the Peeps® Pop Art collection, which included:

PEEPS® GIANT ERASERPEEPS® ART MICROBEAD PILLOW 16X16PEEPS® ART JERSEY PANTS

-          New PEEPS® GIANT ERASER
-          New PEEPS® ART MICROBEAD PILLOW
-          New PEEPS® ART JERSEY YOUTH PANTS


Even though I had ordered the smallest youth size in the PEEPS Art pants, they were still a little bit big for Savannah.  But, that didn't stop her from wanting to wear them.  She kept having me roll up the pant legs, as she lounged around the house with them.  I have to say, after feeling these lounge pants, I can see why she didn't want to take them off.  They felt so soft, and looked like they would be comfy to wear.  I guess I will be asking Santa for an adult size pair for Christmas.  :-)  But, out of the three PEEPS Art items set, the girls couldn't get enough of the 16"x16" microbead pillow, which was covered with Andy Warhol inspired chicks design.  Savannah kept pointing to the different chicks and telling me and Arabella what the colors were.  And, when she wasn't pointing out the colors, the girls were taking turns (a big surprise as they don't like to share), and cuddling and laying on this squishy pillow.  



Again, Santa will have to bring another PEEPS® ART MICROBEAD PILLOW so that the girls will each have one. :-)  As for the giant PEEPS eraser, it really is big.  This 4" in height bright yellow PEEPS chick will be a fun item to add to your child's back to school pencil case.  It definitely brings a smile to your face when you hold this oversized eraser.  To me, it is just too cute to use and get dirty with pencil marks.  But, the girls went to town with it, as they doodled with the pencil and then erased their markings with durable eraser.
