What Happens When You Microwave a Peep?

Microwaved Peeps Revisited

This time last year, I let you in on the microwaved Peeps secret. OK, it really wasn't much of a secret, but some of you were surprised by how much they expand. The microwave we tested them in didn't have a see-through screen, so the results weren't that easy to document. Luckily for everyone who's interested, I've found a group of folks who have a camera inside their microwave. If you want to see what happens when you put three little peeps in the microwave — it's tragic! — then watch the video, just

1) Why would you waste 3 perfectly good Peeps? I agree with Misswills Peeps should die in the tummy. 2) I bet the person that made this video was a man. Once the filming was over, he shut the microwave and pretended the mess was never there. That's what my husband does. 3) I might go to my mom's house and try it in her microwave (see #2)

My husband is a physics teacher, and every year around Easter he puts a Peep or two in a vacuum tube. Apparently, they implode. :)

That was horrifying! My boyfriend's comment as he watched over my shoulder was "they should have died them red with food coloring." He's a very sick boy.

lol That had me laughing out loud. I don't know why it was so funny! Maybe because I HATE Peeps. ;) I was wondering why they put it in a plastic container instead of on a paper plate or something that makes it easier to see, until I saw it oozing out. Funny!
