A Jakeum is morsel of candy likened to marshmallow peeps
, except these are in the shape of the mythical creature the world knows as Jake. A short, stocky, boy shape, with a disgruntled expression painted on the face, and a black spot on the top of its head to represent "Jake's" awkward haircut.
A mere squeezing of the Jakeum’s round belly results in a loud, high-pitched squeak of desperation.
The main feature that distinguishes a Jakeum from a peep
is that rather then being coated in sugar, this marshmallow treat is coated in salt.
"I bought my girlfriend a box of Jakeums for Valentines Day, and she went into hypertensive crisis and stroked out after eating three of them."
