Peeps: The Movie

Post by Dacey » April 6th, 2021, 7:48 pm

Grab your peepers! This ain't your average chick flick! It's going to be a real peep show!

Described as "Trolls meets Smurfs"...isn't that like saying "James Bond meets Mission: Impossible" or "Burger King meets McDonald's"?
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift--that is why it's called the present."

We don’t have, or I have never heard of, these...so I opened that link VERY tentatively!

Oh, you don't have those over there? Over here, Peeps has been merchandising its brand name as THE "Easter candy", and March/April is "all Peeps" for product tie-ins the way October/November is Pumpkin Spice.
(And just as nonsensically tied in to every imaginable product, food or otherwise.)

Given the timing, I can only assume the movie deal was part of it. And I am fighting down the urge to try limited-edition Peeps Pepsi, even out of curiosity.

I suspect if we don’t already have it (and we may do, but I just haven’t been in a store in over a year!), then we will do by the time the movie is released here. Peeps everywhere!

Funny enough, I just bought a bunch yesterday for the after Easter sale! Coconut, yum. Love Peeps!

The Pepsi collaboration is by sweepstakes only, not a general release. Given the opportunity, heck yeah I would go for it! I'm always up for new mash-ups. The most recent one I've tried was Lady Gaga Oreos. They were actually pretty good.

Always take with a grain of salt...

There's a bunch of auctions currently on eBay, the highest one being $300! Clearly we're not the only ones who want Peepsi! ;)
