It all started one year ago today with my Peeps wreath …
Did you hear of that teacher who left a Twinkie on the classroom windowsill for years …
and it didn’t rot, go bad, spoil or fall apart!
No, it weathered the test of time and remained unchanged through many mid terms, science experiments and proms.
I cringe to think of all of the preservative filled Twinkies (and Chocodiles) I happily consumed as a kid (and adult!).
Hey, I’ve got a sweet tooth and never met a Ho-Ho, Little Debbie or Hostess cupcake I didn’t like.
But I draw the lines at eating Peeps. I don’t like marshmallows.
During campouts, I would toss my marshmallows and graham crackers in the bushes and just eat the squares of Hershey’s chocolate. It’s amazing I wasn’t attacked by a roving grizzly!
Since I don’t eat Peeps, it was easy for me to whip up this wreath without even being temped to take a bite.
I made this Peep wreath last year.
She’s stood the test of time and is holding up remarkably well for having been stuffed inside a plastic garbage bag in my dark and dreary basement.
Preservatives – they’re a good thing.
P.S. Have you ever had a Chocodile?
