So I think me and everyone else involved is on their "pre-market slim down". So there is no candy. There is no cake. There are no sweets. There is no joy.
But I have to tell you that working with Castle Peeps is like eating candy all day long with all of the benefits and none of the side effects!!!
I think that most candy is probably more visually satisfying than it is actually satiating. Never do you eat a gummy lifesavor or Midnight Milky Way and feel satisfied. NO. You need more. But yuck. After you eat 2x your cats weight in Reeses Pieces you want to die! It makes me feel like candy might not actually be meant for human consumption.
I think for the most part, candy is linked to nostalgic memories of summer, class parties, holidays, and things like that. I actually find now that most candy for me is strictly emotional. We did some serious damage at Target for Easter just because of the memories/happiness it evoked. Knowing better, we shipped everything off to siblings and friends in need of Easter cheer.
Candy case in point: I buy a bag of circus peanuts because I remember how happy/silly they seem to me... I do not buy a bag of circus peanuts because they taste like inflated banana styrofoam.
So honestly. Castle Peeps fills that need for inverted sugar and colorful memories, without ever having to feel nauseous.
Here is a pic of Finn cooperating with me. Castle Peeps would go well with children, but all I've got is Finn.
also, if you know that you are going to need it/ love it/ use it/ hoard it, go ahead and join the Castle Peeps Flickr Group!
