I saw decorate your own marshmallow peeps packages in CVS. I called the company just to double check that they were gluten free and also lactose free - and they are. The woman was very nice and said that all their products are gluten free. Yay!

Several things here: 1) I didn't know that my kids and I were the only people in the world who made a habbit out of biting the heads off Marshmallow Peeps Chicks. That is frightening. 2) I was REALLY glad when the dietician told me that Peeps were gluten-free 3) I have NEVER heard of microwaving them, didn't think about them getting bloated, and I can't WAIT to get to the store to buy SEVERAL packages!!!!!

Thanks for the GREAT idea, Richard!

Peeps are made almost all year round. I've seen Pumpkins, stars, hearts, christmas trees, even 4th of July ones. They have a website & maybe they show them. I know that's were I saw the co. state that they are gluten-free.

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Unfortunately peeps ARE gluten free (I'm not a fan).

However, as Richard mentioned they ARE fun to microwave. I personally LOVE to blow them up in the microwave. Always remember to place them on something that you want to throw away, because they are SUPER hard to get off of the plate or whatever you put them on.

Also, here is a fun website devoted to peep research! ha (aka blowing them up, drounding them, etc) It's good for a few laughs.
