The Marshmallow Peeps are still alert in their jar during our vegan marshmallow challenge. Not that they needed the company, but they have been joined by Twinkies. Sadly one of them has almost disintegrated, but that was because of the elements. It looks as if they will make their third Easter, (this started in Easter 2011 and there will be no difference in their appearance Easter 2013) next year with nary a concern. What I want to know is, how much would I have to pay someone to sample one??? And so the vegan marshmallow challenge enters Day 595.
