Peeps used to be yellow...

Peeps used to be yellow, long years ago. Then there were some pink ones. Now several colors. But in all those yeara I never thought about this thing (in a photo by Kyra Traaseth of the makings of s'mores, at their house):

I did think to photograph the display at Albertson's near our house, though, to share with my non-Peeps-familiar friends. Glad Kyra's photo reminded me to bring them out.
