They come out in late February, usually right after Valentine’s Day. They stare at me with their little black eyes, willing me to reach out and grab them. It takes so much willpower to say no, so much self control to walk away.
“They’ll be around for weeks!” I tell myself, leaving them on the shelf. “I’ll get some next time I’m here.”
Even without buying any I can taste the crunchy sweet yellow sugar on my tongue. I can feel the soft marshmallow under my teeth. I could almost forgo the tiny pleasure, but what would be the fun in that?
Easter is almost here, their season is almost over. I’d better get my hands on some Peeps before it’s too late.
