Peep this



Facts about Marshmallow Peeps

(my favorite Easter candy)

From Real Simple April 2009

  • It takes six minutes to make one Peep chick.
  • Original Peeps have a shelf like of two years. (I know this because I still have some from last year. I like them stale.)
  • More than 5 million Peeps are produced each day.
  • Peeps have been the most popular non chocolate Easter candy in the United States for more than a decade.

Happy Easter!

  1. May I suggest that in the colder months you use peeps as the marshmallow atop your hot chocolate?

    It's pretty amazing.

    Happy Easter!

  3. Mmmm... Peeps! Delicious!

    My hubby got me Peeps when we were dating because he knew I loved them, only he opened the package and bit off each of their little beaks. I couldn't believe he MESSED with my PEEPS! :)

    It was a double whammy, not only were they stale - I like mine better fresh - but they were altered. I tell ya what!
