CARLINVILLE, Illinois – Coming to an Easter basket (or refrigerator) near you: Peeps flavored milk!
Prairie Farms, the company that makes the iconic marshmallow Easter chicks, is releasing the milk seasonally in three flavors: chocolate marshmallow, marshmallow and Easter egg nog. The company says that each glass will give you 5 grams of protein and 15 percent of the daily value of calcium, but as many folks are realizing, the drink also comes with a whopping 37 grams of sugar. You decide.
The bad news is, they are only being distributed regionally in the Midwest. The good news is, southwest Ohio is part of the distribution area, so if you really need your Peeps milk fix, just plan a road trip to the other side of our state.
