PEEPS Slurpees & PEEPS Lattes Are Now At 7-Eleven

Spring is here and we’re officially in Peeps season, folks. Love them or hate them, with the advent of Spring comes such a hype for these little animal-shaped marshmallows that continues to polarize both classrooms and offices alike. Almost as much as candy corn. Almost.

Leaning into the spirit of Peeps, 7-Eleven just released two new beverage options, both inspired by the prolific, ear-forward marshmallow treat.

The first is a Peeps-flavored Slurpee, which the brand has been teasing since February. This marks the first-ever marshmallow-flavored Slurpee from 7-Eleven (what were they waiting for??). Second, Peeps takes the form of a Peeps Latte that’s offered in the hot beverage dispensing machines.

Those looking for a sweet kick of marshmallow should be sure to give these drinks a taste!

Peeps lovers, you can check out these flavors at your local 7-Eleven throughout the month of April. You can also have them delivered for free through 7Now, 7-Eleven’s delivery service, with the promo code FREE4U.

Limited Edition Peeps Cereal Exists, And It’s The Fitting Easter Morning Breakfast

Whether you celebrate Easter for religious reasons or are just in it for the free candy, it’s definitely clear that Peeps are the modern telltale sign that the holiday is here. A better way to say that, to be honest, is that you know Easter is around the corner when everyone starts putting Peeps into everything.

This Peeps Cereal is definite proof of the iconic association the holiday and the treat now have. Created by Kellogg’s, this limited edition cereal is like a mixture of Froot Loops and Lucky Charms. It consists of multi-colored, marshmallow flavored cereal alongside plenty of actual mini marshmallows.

While there are no actual cereal pieces shaped like Peeps, the flavor and neon-colored cereal are meant to mimic the taste of the fluffy marshmallow chicks.

Kellogg’s created this Peeps Cereal as a limited-edition product, so it should hang around in stores like Walmart and Target nationwide for a little bit past Easter before it disappears from the shelves.

Tim Hortons Celebrates Easter With CADBURY EGG DONUTS

Easter is weeks away but Tim Hortons has already begun celebrating the spring holiday with the release of their newest donut. For fans of the time-honored Cadbury Mini Egg, this is a must-cop.

Tim Hortons locations across the United States have begun selling these new Cadbury Mini Egg Donuts.

The donuts are covered with white fondant, green sprinkles, and finished with a nest of three Cadbury Mini Eggs resting on top. Cadbury’s mini eggs are made with a rich and creamy milk chocolate and covered in a crispy candy shell that come in a variety of pastel colors.

Visually, it’s one of the coolest fast food donuts I’ve seen. Part of me, however, wishes these were also filled with Cadbury’s famous egg creme. But perhaps that’s a discussion for another Easter drop.

Those looking to sink their teeth into this Easter addition can find them at all Tim Hortons locations across the US through April 21.

Guy Documents Countless People Trying To Enter A Closed Chipotle On Easter Sunday

While many spent Easter Sunday at church, or conducting egg hunts, this guy chilled outside of a Chipotle and counted all the people walking up to the door then sadly walking away after realizing it was closed for Easter.

Ben Goodman jumped on his Snapchat and just waited by the closed Pennsylvania-area Chipotle. Little by little, people would walk up, tug on the door, and ultimately realize that they would not get to munch on their precious burritos that Sunday.

He ended up counting a total of 20 people, adding a little bit of funny commentary here and there, as he sat and ate at the restaurant next door.

That’s a lot of disappointed people, but they shouldn’t be eating Chipotle’s pseudo Mexican, garbage hipster burritos anyway.

This Is Most Likely The Wine Jesus Drank During The Last Supper

The Last Supper is probably the most famous dinner in history, and using clues from the Bible and historical analysis, you can get a pretty good idea of what Jesus Christ and his apostles consumed that night.

You probably could have guessed that wine was used to wash down the meal, but Vivino, “The World’s Largest Wine App,” brought together a group of experts to conclude that JC and the gang probably drank “something like a modern-day Amarone.”

The expertise in this group ranged from a professor of Theology and Scripture, to an adjunct professor of anthropology, who directs the Biomolecular Archaeology Project for Cuisine, Fermented Beverages and Health at the University of Pennsylvania Museum in Philadelphia.

They came to this conclusion with several factors involved, such as the history of wine-making in Jerusalem during that time period, the area’s taste for “rich, concentrated wine,” and the archaeological findings of wine, which lead researchers to believe winemakers would use dried out grapes to make a sweet, thick wine.

Another common wine-making procedure was adding pomegranates, mandrakes, saffron, and cinnamon to give wine a little more flavor.

A post shared by THE WINETELLER® (@wineteller) on

With all these procedures in mind, if you were to recreate that type of wine, it would come out to something resembling an Italian Amarone.

“If someone can find me the Holy Grail and send it to my lab, we could analyze it and tell you,” Dr. Patrick E. McGovern told Vivino.

Of course, it’s impossible to know for sure what they ate and drank, but there’s a pretty good chance that Jesus’ last drink consisted of wine, and it was probably a rich, sweet one at that.

The Internet Is Furious Over This Peeps Pizza

Easter is only a couple weeks away and we’re seeing a lot more Peeps pop up the closer we get. While some Peeps-inspired innovations can be pretty delicious, others have us second-guessing the concept of food fusion.

Like this Peeps Pizza.

A recent tweet from @AustinOnSocial showed the world that maybe not everything should be thrown onto a pizza, BroBible reported. In fact, his tweet was even bold enough to state this was better than pineapple pizza. While the topic of pineapples on pizza isn’t something we’d like to get into, it’s definitely more appetizing than this monstrosity.

This ‘Peepza’ drew the full ire of Twitter. Like with the rest of the Internet, users of the social media platform were not afraid to voice their opinions and concerns regarding this cheesy monster of Frankenstein.

While not his own creation, Austin is still sticking with his Peepy guns. We can respect that.

So how do you feel about a pizza that’s topped with melted Peeps?

4 Of The Cutest Ways To Get Drunk On Easter

“Adulting” is hard, there is no doubt about it. As contributing members of society we are expected to give up a lot of little pleasures in life, like, the 12-and-under-menu, a consistent nap schedule, and dino nuggets.

With Easter looming and only younger brother hyped for the holiday, I decided enough is enough..

While children spend the day eating various chocolates shaped like Bambi, parents with children see a day that consists of waking up at an (ironically) ungodly hour, to purposely make a mess of their house with strategically placed cheap plastic grass, and bright egg-shaped contraptions whose only purpose are to house various forms of sugar highs.

College students who live near home are stoked for the free meal, but not stoked about having to get their life together enough to be presentable in front of the ‘rents, if only for a day. And everyone who is not Christian is left out of yet another holiday.

The bottom line is, no one is really winning on Easter except the tiny humans partaking in the Easter egg sugar binge — until now.

From the adult who cant quite get their shit together, to the Pinterest enthusiast, there is a boozy Easter treat for everyone 21 and up, and I am bringing that list to you.

Cheers!
