Peeps is known for marshmallow chicks—but now they're making something even sweeter.
Peeps likes to drop crazy munchies for Easter, like Peeps coffee creamer and Kellog’s Peeps cereal. This year, though, Peeps is bringing back an old favorite with a new twist. You can buy Peeps jelly beans right now!
Peeps jelly beans include four decadent and assorted flavors: Lemon, Strawberry, Blueberry and, of course, Marshmallow.
Indulge in your favorite marshmallow candy combined with the fruity flavors we’ve come to crave from Peeps. (Anyone remember Blue Raspberry Peeps?) Every resealable bag contains about 10 ounces of the good stuff, and it’s gluten-free, so everyone can snag a handful of Peeps jelly beans. We’ll add this to our list of the best Easter basket candy, for sure.
You can grab a pouch (or five, if you’re really feeling indulgent) at Target for $2.99 this Easter season. You can also order them from Peeps’ website for $3.99. Because what’s better than goodies at your doorstep?
What Other Candy Is Peeps Hatching?
This isn’t the only clever idea Peeps had for the upcoming spring.
Peeps also released Giant Marshmallow Bunny Pops, Froot Loop Peeps, complete with a convenient stick for on-the-go snacking, and the Delights series, including Raspberry Delight Peeps dipped in fudgy white chocolate.
With all these fresh new chicks and bunnies hitting the basket this Easter, you’ll need to know what to do with leftover Peeps.
