Full disclosure: the product featured here was sent to me by a friend.
Fuller disclosure: he wasn’t asking me to blog about these at all. He just had some inside information about the latest Peeps product and knew I loved this kind of stuff. I’m really just blogging it for fun. And since the product’s so new, there’s barely any content out there and I figured it’d be fun being among the first.
After all that, the post’s pretty short. A friend sent me a box of new dark chocolate covered marshmallow peeps. I ate too many. I gave some out at EventCamp NYC 2010. I didn’t have enough to share them with my office. They’re very good – they don’t quite replace the normal Peeps covered in sugar crystals (I still love those), but they are a great complement.
But before all the destruction was done, I photographed and shot video of the experience. I’ve embedded the Flickr and YouTube versions below. Since it was a box of them, the YouTube one counts as an ‘unboxing’ (the meme of shooting a video of opening a new product – usually associated with tech gadgets like an iPhone or Wii).
Final disclosure: I like milk chocolate even better, which of course figures since it’s not as ‘good for you’ as dark chocolate. But these dark chocolate ones were pretty damn good.
