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).
Enjoy. And if you want the physical goods, either wait until they’re rolled out close to Easter, or buy them in milk or dark chocolate – by the box.
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.
