Searching high and low for Peeps

garhone Mar 24, 2008 09:17 AM


Anybody know where in Toronto I can buy the marshmellow Peeps? I used to be able to find them in drugstores, especially around Easter. I've looked in some of the Shoppers in my area (Willowdale) and the Zellers at East York Town Centre and I can't find them.

    I did see someone buying them at Walmart, but I don't know if they're available at all locations. I'm in the west (Etobicoke).

      I just saw some on sale at the Shopper's Drug Mart in TD centre. Probably only some of the Shoppers carry them. You might want to try places like Tutti Frutti or Sugar Mountain, but I am not sure what kind of candy stores exist in Willowdale.

        The Zellers at Eglinton and Victoria park (in the Superstore Plaza, formerly Golden Mile) had them yesterday (only saw yellow, not pink) - half price.

          the dollarama next to grande cheese on orfus road west of dufferin had them on saturday (they weren't the typical peeps, though - they were pink bunny ones for easter).

            I came across a display of them in the Shopper's Drug Mart in Toronto Western. Had armloads of them and was about to head to the cash, then realized they were sugar-free. Made with sorbitol!!! How the heck are you supposed to toast the little buggers if they're made with sorbitol??

              Another Dollarama (Hwy. 7 East between McCowan and Markham Rd.) had heaps of them yesterday afternoon.
