Poll: Are Marshmallow Peeps Delicious or Disgusting?

Patch readers share their favorite Easter Candies.

There may be no candy more contentious than the little Marshmallow Peep. Sugar crusted, soft and chewy, the Peep is a much-loved symbol of Easter on par with colored eggs and chocolate bunnies.

Some people hate them, while others adore them.

For those who love these yellow (at least traditionally) chicks, the debate doesn't end with a simple like or dislike. Some prefer their Peeps fresh, and others believe slightly stale is the best. Peeps even come chocolate dipped these days!

So you tell us, are Peeps the best, or the worst?

You'll have to tell us in comments how you prefer to eat your Peeps, because there are WAY too many ways to be able to post some sort of comprehensive list. If you hate Peeps, tell us what your favorite Easter candies are.

I like to open the package, then let them age for a couple of months. The nice thing is they are available for just about every holiday, so the Christmas ones would be ready just about now. When they're fresh, they're like eating a sponge. Gotta let 'em get a little 'al dente'.

I never liked Peeps, the sweetest of sweets. I do, however, like this article and opinion poll about a topic so innocuous, yet full of memories and fervent tastes.
