Peeps are the cute as a button, sweet and fluffy little marshmallow treats that bring a great big smile to everyone’s face! Marshmallow Peeps candy is made in the USA by the Just Born Company, which acquired the line of puffy candy from the Rodda Candy Company in 1953. Before that acquisition, every one of these confections was painstakingly hand-formed, which was quickly remedied by the new owner switching over to mass production. As the candy grew in popularity, unique flavors and colors were introduced and in 2009, the first Peeps & Company store opened in National Harbor, Maryland, followed by more store openings in Minnesota and Pennsylvania.
Often thought of as only an Eastertime treat, this candy is available year-round in Easter Peeps bunny candy as well as chicks, Christmas Gingerbread men, Halloween pumpkins, and even chocolate-dipped Valentine’s Hearts. Flavors of Blue Raspberry and Sour Watermelon have joined the lineup as well as colors such as Pink, Blue, White, Lavender, and Green. Although they are super-delightful to eat, these candies can also be used in recipes for smores, crispy treats, and pancakes or in unique crafting projects the whole family will enjoy!
