Learn how to age Peeps like a Peep-loving professional


Aging Peeps is apparently A Thing, and on my Austin360 Facebook livestream at 3 p.m. today in the video above, you can learn how to do it.

Alyssa Harad and I will be taste testing these new mystery flavored Peeps in a livestream at 3 p.m. Wednesday on Austin360’s Facebook page.

I’d never heard of opening a package of Peeps so they stale before eating them until my friend Alyssa Harad, who is simply a delight to follow on Twitter @alyssaharad, mentioned it online.

Harad also wrote a book about perfume, so I figured she would be an excellent guest to help me taste test these new mystery flavored Peeps. She confessed that she is decidedly anti-flavored Peeps but was willing to come in and try them anyway.

I can’t wait to see how her savant sense of smell — or more accurately, her keen ability to describe scents — affects how she tastes these mystery Peeps, but the biggest takeaway is going to be learning how and why she intentionally ages or stales Peeps for maximum enjoyment this time of year.

Join us for the livestream at 3 p.m. today to find out!
