Peeps Are Gross and Peep Donuts Are an AbominationKelly Faircloth3/28/14 4:45pmFiled to: gross nonfoodpeepsdunkin donutspeep donutscrimes against tastefood1008EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkJust in time for Easter, Dunkin Donuts is rolling out special donuts with Peeps parked in the center. This is the most disgusting thing I've heard all week, including that 16-inch rat. It is a crime against taste and it should not be permitted by civilized society. AdvertisementThe New York Daily News reports that the coffee chain will debut the seasonal offering on March 31, and it comes in two varieties: "green frosting with a pink drizzle, or a strawberry frosting with a green strip." Sure. "Strawberry." Look, I am a devoted drinker of Dunkin Donuts coffee because it's cheap and caffeinated and that's all I need. But let's face it—their donuts already taste some simulacrum of a donut from a far-future space dystopia where all food comes from 3D printers. And now they've chosen to combine that with Peeps, the most overrated of all Easter candies. Why is it that Peeps, which are just no-taste neon sugar-bombs, get so much love in a season that brings dozens and dozens of chocolate and pastel candy treats? They're best reserved for dioramas and microwave stunts, yet business is booming. This year the Yankee Candle Company will also sell limited edition Peep-scented candles.
