Show Your #PEEPSONALITY This Valentine's Day

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Back when I was a youngster, I anxiously awaited Easter time to get my hands on the marshmallow goodness of PEEPS. It seemed like that's the only time they were available. Fast forward a few years and now you can get PEEPS in several variations and flavors all throughout the year.  With Valentine's Day coming up, there's a great assortment of PEEPS Valentine's offerings to decorate with or gift to a loved one.

The only thing that makes strawberries, cherries and chocolate sweeter is the addition of marshmallows and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, what better way to show your loved ones how sweet you can be, than by incorporating adorable and fun PEEPS® marshmallow treats into your gifts?

PEEPS® come in a variety of shapes and seasonally-inspired flavors to satisfy your Valentine’s sweet tooth. In addition to serving as a savory token of affection, PEEPS® Valentine’s Day products also make adorable accents to baked goods and even recipe ingredients.

Because we are a family of PEEPS fans, we tend to eat them right out of the package.  And they don't last long!  I couldn't deny that privilege to my family this year either, so we dove into the goodness of the soft sweet marshmallow confections.  Some varieties we'd had before, while others were new to us. 
With some of the PEEPS, I added an extra decorative touch and put them in vases and wine glasses with red, white, and pink chocolates.  Although the decorations weren't extra expensive or extra fancy, it added a festive Valentine's touch.

PEEPS® Valentine’s offerings include:
•Pink Marshmallow Chicks (5 ct and 10 ct)
•Pink Marshmallow Bunnies (4 ct and 12 ct)
•Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Crème Flavored Chicks (3 ct)
•Marshmallow Hearts (3 ct or 6 ct)
•Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate (3 ct)
•Chocolate Covered Raspberry Flavored Hearts (individually wrapped)
•Strawberry Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)
•Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)

 I love that the classic iconic PEEPS keeps coming out with new additions, without compromising the already great taste. PEEPS can serve as colorful additions to baked goods, adorable accents to art projects and decorations, or just as a delicious treat right out of the package.
What's your favorite PEEPS product? Which Valentine's variety are you most excited to try?

I don't remember ever seeing such a variety of Peeps for valentines day. I probably won't try any this year because sweets taste too sweet now.

When I saw chocolate covered peeps I thought ew, but the fact that they are strawberry and cherry flavored made me re-think it.I may pick a pack up next shopping trip. Also, your family movie night looked like great fun!

One of the radio shows here in Houston plays a game called "chubby bunny" where you have to stuff peeps in your mouth and then say a "chubby bunny" whoever gets the most peeps in their mouth and can still clearly say "chubby bunny" wins!
