This time last year, I let you in on the microwaved Peeps secret. OK, it really wasn't much of a secret, but some of you were surprised by how much they expand. The microwave we tested them in didn't have a see-through screen, so the results weren't that easy to document. Luckily for everyone who's interested, I've found a group of folks who have a camera inside their microwave. If you want to see what happens when you put three little peeps in the microwave — it's tragic! — then watch the video, just read more
Last night the bf was flipping through the channels and landed on a new episode of South Park. The episode itself poked fun at Easter in a Da Vinci Code style. The weirdest thing is I was actually writing a post about how we microwaved Peeps when, what? What is that? They are microwaving Peeps on South Park?!?
Sometimes the universe is wild like that.
So, for today's TV Dinner, I present microwaved Peeps. However, unlike the ones on South Park, ours did not expand to the point where they took over the building and burst out all the windows - but they did expand. We ran three tests and then tried a Peep joust (we didn't have toothpicks so we improvised). Unfortunately, the microwave in our office has a weird screen in front of the window, so we really couldn't see in. This meant no fun video for us (we tried, it looked terrible), so we'll have to show you what happened with still photographs instead.
We put the first Peep in for 15 seconds, it puffed up a tiny bit and deflated into a pile of sticky goo. I preferred the 15 second taste to the 0 second taste. It was warm and a tiny bit more flavorful. I was also surprised because it somehow still managed to look like a bird.
Our tests also ran at 30 seconds, 45 seconds and then a jousting event:
