Review: Bubblegum Peeps (A So Good Exclusive) & YAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN C’mon Now, NBA/NHL…

Junk Food Nation, I am a sports fan, through and through.  Readers of this blog know this.  And I have aged a good 3-4 years over the last week and a half because of the NHL and NBA playoffs. The Stanley Cup has had three overtime games, with last Wednesday’s Game 1 going into TRIPLE OVER TIME.  The NBA Finals have had blowouts, close ones, and Tuesday’s heart thumper in OT to force a Game 7. I HAVEN’T SLEPT MORE THAN FOUR HOURS A NIGHT HERE.

I nodded off during OT of the hockey game last night, and I might have a coronary during tonight’s Game 7 between the Heat and Spurs.  Sports fans – I know you hear me.  Tonight’s game starting at 9:00pm pretty much guarantees I will be a zombie at work tomorrow.

So thanks, NBA and NHL.  You’ve captured a nation’s attention…and you are slowly, slowly killing me.

Today’s junk food is something I reviewed over on So Good earlier this week: Bubblegum flavored Peeps!!  Read a preview here:


WHAT UP, So Good Readers!  Just your friendly neighborhood Junk Food Guy, here providing you with more amateur insight into some of the strangest snacks on shelves today!  Today’s sampling: Bubblegum Peeps!

Bubblegum Peeps

You know what I REALLY don’t like?  Things that taste like bubblegum that AREN’T bubblegum.  I’m talking bubblegum ice cream, bubblegum flavored frosting – yick.  So of course, when I saw these Bubblegum Peeps, I was IMMEDIATELY drawn to them.  Because why NOT just make bad decisions for myself?  It’s a living. (Sidenote: It’s not a living.)


You know the drill – head on over to So Good Blog to read the rest!

  1. The only thing worse than Peeps is something that has been flavored using artificial bubble gum. I can’t imagine how awful those are.

  2. Kenneth says:

    Believe it or not, I actually found these on clearance for 44 cents. I thought they were way too bland, the bubblegum flavor felt very toned down.

  3. Shorneys says:

    Whenever I’m presented with something that’s supposed to taste like bubblegum, I have the urge to spit it out, because when I was growing up, things that tasted like bubblegum, ie, bubblegum, were things you chewed for a while AND THEN SPIT OUT. Awful.

Marvo knows what's on shelves before anyone. ANYONE. Our trusty leader on The Nosh Show.

Ryan is the fast food guru. His soft dulcet tones will make you want to eat french fries, immediately.

Dubba is an ice cream wizard. He's got two spoons and he's not afraid to use them. Unless it's something spicy.

Chris is an IG god, and knows his stuff. Plus, he's from Maryland. What's not to like?
