Do you think...?

How do they get these little peppers such a bright color? Are they dyed? When you wash the red ones, some red comes off in your hands...is that dye? Or just natural coloring?

How do they get these little peppers to taste so good? Is anyone else out there addicted to these wonderful little treats? (Thank goodness for Costco, since they're not really affordable anywhere else!)

Just wondering...

The orange ones are my favorite! I roast them in the oven and put them in a sandwich with cheese on top---yum!

Haha. No dye, but the are delicious! We dunk 'em in hummus and my husband packs them in his lunch to take to medical school.

Hmm... it's unfortunate that I cannot edit my comment to say "THEY are delicious" instead of "the are delicious". :)

I guess I didnt think about the dye option. But the colors are so beautiful and makes you feel much better about eating a beautiful red pepper vs a stale old yellow potato chip.

I'm in love with these little guys too! LOL--never thought about them adding color! My son eats them whole! His favorite are the red ones--they're the sweetest. I see smaller boxes at Winco from time to time at a good price but Costco is a good source at the rate he's been going through them!
