Default Another tragic pandemic fallout....

Peeps will not available until 2021. I can't believe its come to this.

Just Born Quality Confections, the company that produces Peeps, says its holiday-themed marshmallow treats will not be in Halloween candy baskets this year -- and they won't be in stores for Christmas, either.

Good riddance. One of the most disgusting candies ever invented, right above circus peanuts.

We age our peeps at least 2 months..by putting slits in the cellophane and stacking them in alternating layers.

Had a blast with those when my kids were young. Kids loved watching them grow in the microwave. What a freakin mess.

Nothing better than a perfectly aged Peep, kind of like aging a fine wine. I guess I can make it if they get back in production for Easter.

I didn't even consider peeps as candy when I was a kid. They were just a decoration in the easter basket like the green cellophane hay.

Agreed on both. The microwave trick is mildly interesting but they both suck.

This, this, this and this. Peeps and circus peanuts are repulsive to me.

Roast them on the campfire, better than normal marshmallows. Just give the crust a bit to cool or the molten sugar will burn you.
