FUN WITH SUGAR: Peep Into My Favorite Book Contest

Recommend Blog Post
Total Recommendations (0)


What is it about those garishly colored marshmallow-and-sugar candies shaped like chicks? I could call them the Easter equivalent of fruitcake, except I actually like fruitcake.

But Peeps? A friend's Facebook status update revealed the existence of tequila-infused Peeps ("really gross"), although a web search turned up not recipes but peeps of the human variety consuming tequila. You can, however, make hors d'oeuvres with them. 

Perhaps, though, these mysterious creatures are not so much candy as toys. The Olympia Timberland Library seems to be taking that position with its Peep Into My Favorite Book Contest. The library invites you to create a shoebox-sized diorama starring Peeps and having literary or library-inspired roots. The contest is open through May 7. Dioramas will be on display at the library (313 Eighth Ave. S.E., Olympia) and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony Wednesday, May 11.

Rules and entry forms are available at Timberland libraries.

Submissions begin Wednesday, April 27.
