Snack of the Week: Peeps Crispy Rice Marshmallow Treats

It was only a matter of time before a group of people sitting around a conference table at Peeps, Inc. started thinking "Hey, we make all of these delicious marshmallow treats. We should make Rice Krispie Treats."

And they did.

A few of these arrived in package from my sisters. I was not quite prepared for how boldly colored the treats would be.

The have the same scent (and flavor, I would imagine) as the premade Rice Krispie treats you can buy at the store.

Have you spotted any new Peeps treats this year?

Snack of the Week is a weekly feature where I profile the best snack that I am eating. Equal parts healthy and indulgent are how I aspire (and sometimes fail) to eat my way through life and I try to reflect in these snacks. All snacking is done with a budget-friendly mindset as well.

If you have any suggestions for snacks you would like me to try and profile, please email me at Unless it is super weird or expensive, I will probably try it.


  1. that blue peep is scary looking! Like nuclear radiation scary!

  2. Those are pretty vivid!

  3. When I pulled the blue Peep out of the wrapper, I might have gasped. Totally brighter than I ever expected.

  4. Vivid is putting it mildly! ;-)
