There is nothin' like Valentine PEEPS

I'm thrilled that PEEPS have such a broad selection of candies for Valentines Day. I admit it -- I love PEEPS.  I have to have them for every holiday.

But this year, there are some really special PEEPS out there -- I've found them readily available at the local Mega Mart, CVS, and grocery stores. The wonderful makers of PEEPS sent me a beautiful selection to try. I've been carefully hoarding them for Friday (and since we're in the throes of an ice storm, they will come in handy).

• Sugar-free PEEPS: Crunchy and meltable, these don't spike blood sugar or cause gastric distress. For me, a major PEEP lover, these are a special treat. It means I have a Valentine's basket for myself!

• Beautiful dark-chocolate dipped PEEPS. Raspberry dipped in chocolate. It's going to be a treat in my Valentine's basket!

• Lovely big hearts, lovely little chocolate mousse bears. Such a yummy treat.

Here's a description from the maker of PEEPS:
