Peeps Limited Edition Breakfast Cereal, Target [$3.79]
While we’re generally proponents of eating healthy, unprocessed food, we’re also on board with a little treat every once and a while. So when an iconic Easter delight transforms itself into a highly delectable breakfast cereal that’s only available in April, we can’t help but buy a box. It’s literally peeps, in an acceptable breakfast form. It’s also great for a seasonal take on Rice Krispie treats with a pretty pastel palette. Confession – we had it for dinner last night.
