Um, okay, enough with butchering lyrics by The Doors. It’s time to talk about the strangest holiday candy of them all: Marshmallow Peeps! Yes, these squishy little buggers with their waxy, machine-stamped eyes have reared their sugared heads again with the announcement of the first ever “Deck the Peeps” holiday art contest.
Another brainstorm from the folks over at Just Born, this holiday contest invites peep-le to create awesome holiday art with the candy, take a picture and email it to them for a chance to win … are you ready for this? … ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS WORTH OF PEEPS! Why, that might *even* be enough to reimburse the winner for all of the Peeps they purchased to Super Glue to a cardboard form in the hopes of winning!
The second-place winner receives $50 worth of Peeps & Company stuff, while the lucky third-place winner will take home a fabulous candy prize pack.
Get those brain cells grooving, folks, because it’s going to take an astonishing idea to beat out all of the other folks who are surely rubbing their hands together with glee and anticipation. And no, in this particular sentence I’m actually NOT being sarcastic, because I’ll bet this contest draws quite a few entries.
For more information about the contest and to enter your photo to win, click here. I, for one, will not be entering the contest because the mere mention of Peeps brings back traumatic memories. But let’s just say YOU wanted to do a Peeps project to enter in this contest. What would you make?
