Slate's L.V. Anderson and I recently tasted four marshmallow Peeps, including the originals, a vegan variety, and some fancy versions we ordered on the internet.
"I feel like I'm getting a hint of vanilla, but also...some savory depth," L.V. notes. "It feels like it has a more complex flavor."
Are umami peeps a thing?
Watch the video to see if L.V. and I can spot the genuine Peep amid these fancy knockoffs.
