Didn't know they could get stale. Never had them last that long once they came in the house. ;-)

@ Joated -
The trick is to buy so many that the tail-end of the pile has a chance to 'age' like a fine wine.

I buy them after the holiday and put them in the freezer. I like them in my hot chocolate, the extra sugar just makes the chocolate taste so good. The freeze well.

Lisa, yep!

Joated, I never liked them, but stale they are just about edible. Liz however, is crazy about them

Cathy, lol, that would work. Liz buys them special to age them

Linda, the only way I can stand them, although ellie k below has given me an idea I am going to try.

Ellie, I am definitely going to try that. Sounds good!

I've always liked them better stale. But I never have understood the appeal of biting the head of a pretty pink peep LOL

ellie k is right. They do freeze well. But you lose a lot of the fun of the original. I'd rather just eat them stale, just makes them chewier.
