Peepy Facts


Did you know....
The original Marshmallow PEEPS are made by the Just Born Company in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania ?

The first PEEPS were produced in 1953 and it took 27 hours to create just one peep ! Today, peeps are produced at the rate of 4.2 million per day.

PEEPS have a shelf life of 2 years !

One PEEP contains 32 calories and 0 grams of fat.

PEEPS have been the #1 non - chocolate Easter candy for the past decade, even outselling jelly beans.

People like to do curious things with PEEPS...eat them stale, microwave them,freeze them, roast them, and even use them as a pizza topping.

Over 1.2 billion PEEPS are produced each year covering all all the holiday seasons...that's enough PEEPS to circle the earth twice !!!
