Drinkable Easter treats for West Seattle Peeps fans

hotwirepeep.jpgWhile out photographing outdoor sunrise services tomorrow (listed on our West Seattle Easter Sunday Services page along with every other WS service we could find), we’ll be stopping by Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor) in The Junction for their Easter-season treat — Peep lattes. Really! Hotwire proprietor Lora provided the photographic proof. The ones with yellow Peeps have honey and vanilla; pink Peeps, strawberry and white chocolate; green Peeps, peppermint and milk chocolate. Lora says Hotwire will be open 7 am-6 pm tomorrow. (And if you’ve got a little one in tow, Hotwire’s having a Peep hunt – find the six Peep pix hidden around Hotwire, get your own Peep.) IF YOU’RE READING THIS POST-EASTER: Lora says the Peeps are “put away for the year” but other spring treats are now on the menu – including lavender mochas and rose lattes.

    That is just too funny! I was driving through Mill Creek yesterday and passed this drive-thru espresso place that was always known for a different wacky flavor every day. Yesterday it said Peep Mocha and I was trying to figure out how they would do that – chopping up peep into the drink, or setting it on top. So now you’ve satisfied my curiosity.

    The Confectionary in Pike Place Market was also selling Peep Cheesecake for the holiday – filled with chunks of peep and with two Peep bunny ears on top.

    Been there. Done that. The wife and I had the mint one, and the vanilla one this morning – yummy and fun. Plus I got to say I went to a peep show this morning!

    Went this afternoon for the pink one – it was just too funny. So not only did I have a tasty latte, but it gave me a good laugh. That’s worth something. Every day should be Peep Latte day! :)

    We went in this morning and had the vanilla and honey peep latte. It was simply delicious. And neither of us likes Peeps one bit!

    Also, WSB, while we were there we found out that (Doh I forget his name – starts with a B) the barista is on his way to L.A. to try out for Project Runway. Maybe a little local-interest story is in order!

    Yeah, we heard while getting our Hotwire drink this morning that he’s off to Cali, then Lora told us later it’s for Project Runway, we asked her to let us know how he does.

    If he ends up on the show, we’ll have to have meetups at one of the local bars to watch. I don’t have cable anymore and I think a few others are in the same boat, but it would be fun to get something going to see how he does. This morning was out first time in Hotwire and I have to say the coffee was delicious, everyone was friendly, and we’re both in love with the artwork (by same barista who is trying for PW) is amazing. We may have to buy one of the pieces. We’ll absolutely be back for coffee.

    uhh, ok. Time to get off the computer and get to sleep. I just noticed my horrendous editing job. My apologies to anyone reading and attempting to make sense of my above comment!

Sorry, comment time is over.
