Peeps-Flavored Milk, Yea or Nay?

The popular Easter candy Peeps is expanding its marshmallow-y empire for a delicious or repulsive treat: Peeps-flavored milk. Prairie Farms will partner with Peeps in this new culinary frontier.

Peeps “is lending its signature sugary taste to three milk flavors: Marshmallow Milk, Chocolate Marshmallow Milk, and Easter Egg Nog.”

“Creating a line of flavors that joins the two strong brands was an obvious choice,” the company said in a statement.

The drink has been released in the midwest this week. “Today in St. Louis” producer Cassidy Moody went out to find some and gave it a thumbs up.

One thing is for sure, it’s not healthier for you.

The Peeps-flavored milk is packed with more than three times the amount of sugar a serving of regular Prairie Farms whole milk has, clocking in at 37 grams per cup. A serving of whole milk contains 11 grams of sugar. For comparison, a 12-oz. bottle of Coca-Cola contains 39 grams of sugar.

Peeps milk also has more than twice as much sodium – 320 mg per cup compared to 120 mg for a cup of the brand’s whole milk.

Both types of milk contain 8 grams of protein.

What are  your thoughts? Have you tried the Peeps-flavored milk? Do you have any interest in finding some to drink?
