4 Wild New Peeps Flavors

Peeps are absolutely losing their mind, and I love every second of it.

Peeps were once seen as bland, stale, sugary marshmallows. But, now? They’re brave innovators. They take risks. Peeps flavors like Pepsi, Sour Watermelon, Root Beer Float, and Fruit Punch have all pierced the Easter candy zeitgeist. This is what we love about Peeps. They’re a menace. Next year I wouldn’t put it past them to roll out a Chicago hot dog flavor.

I tried some new flavors for 2022 (and a few from 2021) to give you the Peeps scoop.

Original Donut Shop Coffee

This tastes like those little cups of Keurig coffee, which, to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of. It’s less like donut shop coffee and more like the coffee you get in a styrofoam cup when you’re waiting for the mechanic to fix your transmission.

Chocolate Pudding

This does actually taste like chocolate pudding, and I’m a fan. There’s a good chocolaty flavor with some creaminess in there too. It’s interesting.

Party Cake

Yes. This is a vanilla birthday cake with marshmallows on it. It’s kind of artificial in flavor, but in a good way. Birthday cake is great because it’s cheap and sugary. That’s what Peeps are. Good pairing.

Hot Tamale

Does it taste like a Hot Tamale? Yes. Is it better than a Hot Tamale? Absolutely not. I left this taste test thinking, “Why are these Hot Tamales marshmallows?” Swing and a miss, but a fun swing and a miss. Way to take a chance. This is why we love Peeps. They’re brave.

  • There’s a cotton candy type I had recently that was pretty legit. Got some “Tropical Burst” ones on the counter waiting to be opened…
