How To Find The Speed Of Light Using Peeps

peeps-speed-of-light

Peeps owe their color, gelatinousness, and very existence to science. So, it only makes sense that they pay it back, by lending themselves to a scientific experiment.

Finding The Speed of Light with Peeps, by NPR’s Skunk Bear, is a very fun way to come up with how fast light travels. It’s actually quite simple, and a fun little project that you can do with the kids… if they don’t eat all the Peeps first. Science!!

Chocolate Easter Bunny Jello Shots Will Help Make Easter Tolerable

If you’ve ever wondered why they make chocolate Easter bunnies hollow — besides to provide crushing disappointment after a successful egg hunt — Oh, Bite It! has the answer.

Chocolate Easter Bunny Jello Shots are here to help make Easter a success… for the adults. While the kids are off looking for brightly-colored eggs, parents can relax and throw back a few boozy bunnies.

The best part, is that you won’t have to raid the kids’ Easter basket later — as you’ll already have your sugar fix, and will probably be passed out by then. Recipe here.

Peeps-Flavored Milk Exists

peepsproduct-1

Just when you thought that Peeps-related madness had reached its apex, along comes Peeps-Flavored Milk.

No longer will we be limited to our Peeps consumption in gelatinous form. This Easter, we shall use our marshmallow chicks to wash down our Cadbury Creme Eggs and other egg-shaped fare.

The folks responsible for this, Prairie Farms Dairy, is releasing Peeps-flavored milk in three varieties — chocolate marshmallow, marshmallow and Easter eggnog. So far, there will only be limited release of Peeps Milk in the midwestern U.S.

For those lucky enough to get their hands on this, and would like to go beyond simply drinking it, there are some Peeps recipes provided on the carton. Lucky midwesterners!!

Dunkin’ Donuts Will Unleash Peeps Donuts for Easter

Peeps season is upon us. And, if you happen to run on Dunkin’, a cute little Peep could be staring back at you while you ingest your morning coffee and donuts.

Dunkin’ Donuts will release two varieties of Peeps Donuts, just in time for Easter. One with a standard-issue yellow Peep, pink frosting, and green stripes — the other with a pink peep, green icing, and pink stripes.

Even though they were given an official release date of March 31st, the Peep-laden donuts have already been spotted on DD shelves. And, it looks as much like a psychedelic chicken coop as you’d expect.
