Ok...I did it...I couldn't resist the cute little guys. My office mate bought me a pack of at sugarfree Peeps Easter candy. I LOVE PEEPS. I made it through easter without buying candy and then came into work..and was faced with those marshmallowy yellow faces ....and I did it...I ate the little guys. Those three Peeps have given me D all day now...they were soooo good. But...my tummy is all gassy and crampy...my fault. I know...any other Easter Peep sinners out there?

I just ate two myself. I prefer them stale, but rarely can let them sit around for a month to get that way. Fortunately, they don't bother me.

omg peeps! yeah, i had a peep treat yesterday too! i think you would've been better off with full on sugar peeps than sugar free -- all those artificial sweeteners always do a job on me, but i seem to be ok with sugar. sorbitol is the devil! ;)

My dad sent me a huge Easter bag of candy. Snickers, Reeses peanut butter eggs, Butterfinger eggs, etc. I've been pigging out since yesterday. I haven't had any problems. If anything, sometimes it seems like I feel better UC-wise when I eat junk. Very strange...

Usually that marshmallow filling helps "firm" me up for a day. I wonder if it wasn't the sugar free part that got to you... Maybe try again with the regular ones? All in the name of science ;) hahaha

Sugar doesn't bother my gut. It just makes it bigger. :-(

Maybe that's it!

Over the past weekend (Purim holiday for me) I had a few junk food indulgences too. The problem is that since then, my gut has been indulging in intense trouble. I never associated sugar with gas, crampy feeling and bloating, bec., I rarely eat junk food. Today, i had a few leftover gummy worms and had a sugar headache a few minutes later...I feel burpy and mainly bloated in the gut. It always feels full, it's felt that way for 2 days... sad I prepared a 1/2 box of white rice to eat tomorrow to calm things down. Plan on eating it for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We'll see it if it helps any... confused

My Easter indulgence was a pack of Cadbury's Mini Eggs - delicious!. No matter how well I control what I eat, at this time of the year Cadbury's Mini Eggs is a weakness.  But, I made up for it by drinking a good amount of fresh veg juice and water throughout the day.

Cadbury's Mini Eggs for me. Ugh....they are a major weakness. My grocery store has had them since after Valentine's. I couldn't stop buying them! Luckily chocolate doesn't bother my IBS. But it is not so friendly for the hips!

Oh! Cadbury eggs! I just love those mini ones! This year my self control has been great - I only ate eight of them so far.

Yes, the sugar makes the gut grow. Just adding to the spare tire that the pred gave me... (Yes, I blame it ALL on the pred.)

Hmmm I must be the odd ball here because I loathe Peeps! LOL I can't stand them *yuck*. However, put a Reeses Peanut Butter Egg in front of me and I'm your friend for life!

I'm not down with the Peeps either. And yes, you'd be better off with the sugar kind. The artificial sweeteners - particularly if they have sugar alcohols - are bad news for IBDers.

I love any color of those sugar coated marshmallow critters! I absolutely LoVE the cadbury eggs but the store I went to was out. I figured if they weren't there it wast meant to be! I haven't gone searching for them anywhere else though. I love anything chocolate, especially very dark chocolate!

Supernurse-

Peeps candy are bright yellow/green/pink/purple sugar coated marshmellows in the shape of baby chickens, rabbits etc. Stick with the cadbury eggs...peeps are a love 'em or hate 'em kind of food. Nothing affects me like marshmellows. In any form it equals pain for me. I have not found a substitute for the marshmellow in smore's. I love s'mores. Any ideas?

Too funny -- I was in WalMart yesterday and checked out the 50% off Easter candy..........went looking for Peeps - not a one in the aisle!! Then I looked for chocolate marshmallow bunnies, eggs -- nothing!!

So I saw the peanut butter reese's eggs and picked up a package of 6 and decided to try them as I like their p-nut butter cups....... OMG.....so good. Good thing we had company last night so that took care of 4 of them....guess what the 2 left over today....GONE!!!!

Glad I didn't pick up 2 packages!!!

Peeps are one of those things you get in your Easter basket as a child and love. I think a lot of adults love Peeps because they take us back to our childhood, and they're an Easter tradition for us.

I agree Judy............that is one of those things that bring us back to a happy time. Funny how certain things trigger those "warm and fuzzy" feelings.

Just like certain songs bring you to a certain place and time and even certain smells - be it food or for instance an old boyfriend of my high school days who wore "Canoe" men's cologne and Old Spice that my Dad would wear.

Nice memories actually get triggered sometimes by the simplest things.

Oh - I can't STAND the peeps! But every so often I'll crave a chocolate covered marshmallow egg. Then I'm good for a few years.

A friend of mine loves the peeps - stale too. So last Christmas I bought her some, and kept them until they were stale - so she wouldn't have to wait when she got them.
