In this 60th year of the Peep, two billion will come into existence. The New York Times Magazine had an exposé last spring that got into the trenches on how industrial Peep farming makes that possible. Turn a blind eye, though. Be thankful for the bounty and use it to its fullest.
- Nicole Weston at Baking Bites stole the hearts and sensibilities of the Internet this week with "How to Make Peep-Infused Vodka."
- Consider a mildly inspiring Peep sunflower cake.
- Or a very inspiring Trojan Peep cake, 200 times the size of a normal Peep and containing multitudes. Everyone will be horrified.
- Peep sushi
- Peep latte
- Or, as the Los Angeles Times suggests, crawl out from under the industrial thumb of Big Peep and make your own Peep-ish mallow phoenixes.
Finally, even though we are in an era of confectionary abundance and make light of it, remember that there are seven billion people in the world. For every person who has a Peep, there are 2.5 people who do not.
