OKLAHOMA CITY - Peeps, a marshmallow icon on Easter and some people's all time favorite candy. But is the myth that they are indestructible true?

NEWS 9 reporter Jacqueline Sit put peeps to the test, trying everything from rolling them over with a bowling ball to dropping it eight stories off of a building.

Floating it in the Bricktown canal only made the Peep a great small boat for kids and the little marshmallow bird even survived being run over in traffic.

However, the microwave finally defeated the sugar coated chewy treat. Better luck next year, but the Peep Brulee wasn't half bad.
