With Easter right around the corner, it’s no surprise that my sweet tooth has already started craving things like chocolate bunnies and Cadbury eggs. One of my favorite Easter treats has always been those sugary marshmallow Peeps, which I tend to eat every year until I get a stomachache, and then just keep on eating more. But this holiday season, we’ll see a special new treat that combines two of the most addictive substances known on Earth: Peeps and Minecraft.
That’s right, you can now buy marshmallow Peeps that are modeled after the Creeps in Minecraft, and officially licensed by Mojang. There are four slender green Creeps in each pack, and they look to provide the optimal sugar rush that most of us need when crafting awesome new worlds at home or on the go. This is the perfect basket-stuffer for Minecraft fans this Easter, and you can buy the deliciously awesome treats right over at ThinkGeek. Tell me this idea is nothing short of genius.
You’ll also get some additional fun information on the Creeps product page. For instance, did you know that sugary Easter sweets have beta testing just like some of our favorite video games? It’s true! And ThinkGeek has an important message for beta testers about the change with Creeps formula 1.0: “As you know, the first batch of Creeps came coated with a fine layer of sulfur. While totally authentic, the taste was… Well, let’s just say it was an acquired taste. As a result of your feedback, we’ve replaced the sulfur coating with coarse grain sugar.”
