It's breakfast time! The perfect time to try these Pancake and Syrup Peeps.
Using my excellent cooking skills, I made up a short stack of pancakes to try alongside these Peeps.
The Peeps are a brown color. Wonder if that's supposed to represent the pancakes or the syrup.
Alright Peeps, you've been messing with us on what color is inside. I thought perhaps a yellow this time. Ian and Theresa guessed white. Alli, knowing the last few have been a surprise, chose pink!
A look inside reveals just a regular brown.
According to the back of the package, Peeps and Pancakes is "the ultimate breakfast combo".
I've seen pancake art before. I don't have the right tools (squeeze bottles) easily available, but why not try to learn new things anyway. I dyed some batter yellow and poured it into the pan. I did learn some lessons for the next time I want to attempt this. First, the batter needs to be super smooth and a little bit runnier. Second, the pan needs to be a lot cooler, so as not to discolor the batter. Next time.
A chocolate chip for the eye and we're set.
Let's eat! Peeps first.
After the disaster that was Party Cake Peeps, I was hoping there wouldn't be too much of that flavor. And luckily, the only flavor I could taste was a light maple. A very light flavor again. Theresa actually mentioned that this might be why the kids are enjoying these so much. If it was a strong flavor there's higher chance they wouldn't like them.
Both kids gave them a thumbs up.
And the pancakes? Yes, of course they love pancakes. What's not to love about pancakes/syrup/butter (carbs/sugar/fat)?
Just a few more flavors to try before the ultimate Peeps showdown.
