ATLANTA (CNN) -- Inspired by a sugar rush after consuming
several of the ubiquitous Easter confections known as Peeps,
Emory University scientists James Zimring and Gary Falcon
decided to try to find out just what it was they were eating.
Using everything this side of a nuclear device, these
intrepid scientists conducted experiments to discover just
what would dissolve a Peep. As CNN's Ann Kellan reports, what
they found was that these are some of the sturdiest birds not
found in creation.
