Ah yes, the sweet, manufactured colors of the delectable Easter candies, called Peeps.
Shaped like abstract baby chicks or simplified rabbits, these sugar encrusted, basket fillers, have made their way into the collective unconscious. We have even seen a TV documentary on the making of Peeps.
Not really a food, but a filler. Once you’ve eaten just one, the experience could last a lifetime.
But the visual and the name stick with you.
After you, or the young ones around you, have satisfied the traditional sugar enhanced rush of tasting the traditional Easter baskets bounty, then what?
Sit very still? Go for a run? Pass out on the couch?
Oh, no. Not if you have a mind like one of our readers, Carolyn A Hampton.
You think past the expected. You take on the challenge.
You reshape the historical meaning of Peeps, with photographs.
We just love her take on it.
Now, every culture around the world has their own iconic parts of this holiday. What’s yours?
Or has Peeps, seeped into your culture too?
Of course there are more photographic scenarios that Carolyn shot, but we wanted to share these, just to hopefully give you a little laugh.
And remind us all to always be thinking past what may appear to be the obvious.
