We never thought we’d say this, but we were impressed… by Peeps. We didn't go into this with incredibly high expectations, but we found that the often polarizing treats were generally good, especially if you've got a quick-and-dirty sweet tooth.
Out of the three flavors, the pumpkin spice -- and all of its basic-ness -- is hands-down the best, and sure to please all the basic pumpkin spice latte slurping masses this fall. However, the caramel apple and candy corn Peeps are decent, as far as Peeps are concerned, for those who aren't into that pumpkin spice stuff. They'll all start hitting Target store shelves later this month, and the Peeps website. No need to wait until the day after Easter to nab these from the clearance rack.
