What's better, Peeps or Cadbury Eggs? Katharine Shilcutt broke it down for us today. But reader "Shut Up & Eat" felt that the Peeps didn't get a fair shake:
Peeps are like a fine wine.
One can't just snatch them right off the shelf as soon as they hit the stores. You've got to let them age in a low-humidity setting - that's when they're at their best. A month or two in the pantry should be sufficient to bring out their full character.
Perhaps we'll revisit the issue this summer. And speaking of Peeps, if you haven't seen the "Peep Torture" video over at Art Attack, you are missing out.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
