Peeps

Peeps is an interesting word.
Its original meaning is this: marshmallow candies in the shape of rabbits and baby chickens, which are usually served around Easter. These peeps are very sweet and kids like them a lot. They come in bright yellow and pink. You may be asking, what is marshmallow? It's a light, spongy, very sweet confection made of corn syrup, gelatin, sugar, and starch and dusted with powdered sugar.
The second and more important meaning of peeps, as defined by the slang dictionary, is "people". But usually not just people in general. When someone says peeps, they usually say "my peeeps," and this means my group of friends, etc. Or someone could say, "the peeps," which would also mean the regular group of people.
So, who are your peeps?
