Protector of Peeps® Candy Wafer LLLama is one of the LLLamas featured in Meet the LLLamas. She has a new challenge, but she’s ready.
As her fans know, she was the SpokesLLLama for a number of multi-national candy companies until senior management replaced her with a giggling animated candy bar. She recovered from that insult by joining an international nondenominational non-profit that cares for retired Easter Bunnies.
Her second job: Peeps Protection
She took on a very part-time job, Peeps® Protection, and began blogging for “Safety First: Keep Peeps® Out of Microwaves.” In the early years, when Peeps® were in stores for 15 minutes before Easter, this was a very part time job. Now that Peeps® are available year-round, she has had to up her game. None of her friends are surprised that she now has two full-time jobs.
Her challenge thrown down from AARP
A recent AARP newsletter features 11 Things You Didn’t Know About Peeps® which would be fascinating were it not for the instructions for creating a microwave to-the-death engagement between two Peeps® and two toothpicks.
Candy Wafer read the piece and cried “For shame!” She has begun a massive social media campaign to thwart this dastardly turn in the long and storied life of Peeps®.
Peeps Protection and the international water crisis
“Peeps® protection has never been more important than it is today. With a growing international water crisis, it is irresponsible to blast Peeps® in a microwave. The cleanup takes an enormous amount of water. Melted and boiled sugar is difficult to remove from easily accessible spaces, but microwaves require a long reach — especially for short people.
“Inevitably,” she added, “the culprit is not the one in charge of cleanup.”
