A Jolly Rancher may have been too much to tackle for Barry Church's tooth, so Peeps says, 'Try us for the whole season'

Barry Church’s toothache is making for a pretty sweet week.

After the Cowboys safety hurt a tooth on a Jolly Rancher and had to miss a day of practice for a trip to the dentist this week, the people who make Peeps whipped up a deal for him.

How ‘bout some of our nice, soft marshmallow candies for the whole season?

“Haha, I can’t believe that!” Church said.

Believe it. The company publicized a letter it sent him and the Cowboys this week, so look for Church to get reacquainted with a childhood favorite.

He laughed again. He couldn’t believe one wrong bite led to so much attention for his tooth.

“I was thinking nothing of it,” he said. “Next thing I know, I’m tackling a Jolly Rancher in one picture I saw.”

Yep. This picture. As seen on USA Today's "Shutdown Corner" football blog.
