Peeps Is Debuting 7 New Flavors to Jazz up Your Easter Basket
The makers of the iconic Easter candy are heading into spring with some all-new Peeps flavors! The original yellow chicks and bunnies, of course, are the top-selling Peeps in the U.S., which is impressive considering there are a lot of Peeps flavors among the 2 billion that are made each year. Aside from the classic yellow, pink, and blue colors, Peeps offers a wide variety of other popular flavors including, cotton candy, blue raspberry, pancakes and syrup, and yes even ones that are dunked in milk chocolate.
But the brand new airy delights may be the ones to beat. Upon their inception in 1953, the sugar-dusted marshmallows used to take 27 hours to make, as each one was made by hand. Now, thanks to technology and mass production, a big batch takes about six minutes to make. It's no wonder Peeps are available in so many flavors and year-round.
Now, here are the seven new Peeps flavors that you can slip into your family's Easter baskets this spring.
