The chocolate Easter bunny is still pretty much the chocolate Easter bunny. But not so for Peeps. I remember when they were one color, one species.
Maybe pink also, but most definitely not blue, orange, green and purple as they are today. And there were only the creatures that “peep,” you know, little chickies. No other sounds like rabbits and whatever else the Peeps factory is churning out. Probably even real human Peeps someday.
I’d say Peeps are to Easter what Rudolph is to Christmas — not the main attraction (commercially speaking) but very, very important.
And the poor chocolate Easter bunny? Just the butt (no pun intended) of a joke.

Easter Sunday used to be my best opportunity for throwing a magnificent, Oscar-worthy tantrum.
If I couldn’t find every single egg and fill my basket to overflowing I would scream and yell and cry until someone would sneak up behind me and magically fill it with eggs, jelly beans and of course Peeps.
Hope you have a very happy Easter. After all, I won’t be there to throw a tantrum and ruin it.
