Sour Watermelon Peeps

This might be my new favorite candy! (At least my favorite peeps) The sour watermelon flavor is subtle and honestly not very sour, but that is not bad in this case. It’s what I consider “delightfully tangy”. The chick itself is a light pink marshmallow coated in a bright green sugar. A perfect peep.

Blue Raspberry Peeps

These, contrary to the packaging, are the actual sour candy of the two flavors. However, I do not consider this to be good. The flavor is a little to tart for my tastes, but sour lovers should celebrate Blue Raspberry Peeps arrival. Bonus: The bright blue marshmallow and sugar coating turns your tongue blue in seconds!

My Rating: StarsStarsStarsStars

Next time: Mystery peeps 1 & 2.
