The Easter season is quickly approaching which means it's the season of Peeps!  The cute, edible treats are perfect for any Easter basket...except when they taste like hot tamales.  No joke.

Peeps recently announced their new flavors just in time for the Easter Bunny.  USA Today reports that the five new flavors introduced to the brand are Froot Loops, Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon, Raspberry Dipped in Crème Fudge, Root Beer Float and Chocolate Pudding bunnies.

A USA Today journalist spoke with the brand manager for Peeps, Caitlin Servian.  She states, " 'The Peeps Brand has become an icon in American pop culture, with its instantly recognizable colors, shapes and flavors holding a special place in the hearts of many for nearly seven decades.  We strive to meet the perfect balance of history and innovation by continuing to offer our classic Peeps Chicks and Bunnies, while also bringing new and exciting products to our fans.' "

I really don't know how I feel about these Peeps...the Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon Peeps probably scare me the most.  Maybe I'll try the Chocolate Pudding bunnies!

Will you try the new Peeps or will you take a pass?
