"That waistband doesn't go with that coat," said the queen.

"As you have already noted, I was late." Eugenides bent his head to look at his waist. His coat was yellow, and so was the waistband, but the shades were not the same. "My attendants have triumphed this morning in their quest to make me look foolish. [...] No doubt in time their taste will improve."

"Perhaps if you did not order your clothes in colors that would suit a canary?"

(Would you believe that, prior to today, I'd never eaten a peep before?! The things I'll do to win an ARC of Thick as Thieves...)

I've never met them here!

They are sugar encrusted marshmallows, usually in the shape of brightly colored bunnies and chicks. They're an Easter icon in the States, and from my own experience, there appears to be two camps of people: those that love them and those that think they're gross. :) I'm an anomaly in that I'd never actually eaten one until yesterday!

Have never eaten one. I ate my first jelly bean this past year, though, so anything's possible. And I am almost 60. I've gotten adventurous.

They're pure sugar, tooth-rotting fluff that pops up like mushrooms in the spring and are an iconic Easter treat. Basically, they're marshmallows coated in a crunchy layer of brightly colored sugar in the shapes of baby chicks and bunnies. There's a lot of Easter specific candy in the States, because of Easter baskets (baskets full of candy usually given to children) and putting candy inside plastic Easter eggs you hide for children to find. I swear I got more of a sugar high on Easter candy than Halloween candy as a kid.

They're one of those things that looks really cute and yummy, but is actually disgusting when you try to eat it. Like rock candy... XD Some people like them, and I did when I was a kid. After awhile, you tend to outgrow pure sugar candy, but most Easter candy is geared towards children.

ninedaysaqueen gave a good explanation! They really taste terrible, but they're a lot better as decoration.

(I do know people who like them, though I would only eat them if I was starving and had literally nothing else. One friend claims they taste OK if you dry them out enough to make them stale.)

I'm not sure if he's even capable of bending his head to look at his waistband (neckband?) XD
