With Easter this weekend I thought we could find out a little more about those crazy little peeps.Peeps are produced by Just Born, a candy manufacturer founded in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania by Russian immigrant Sam Born. In 1953, Just Born acquired the Rodda Candy Company and its marshmallow chick line, and replaced the painstaking process of hand-forming the chicks with mass production. The yellow chicks were the original form of the candy — hence their name — but then the company introduced other colors and, eventually, the myriad shapes in which they are now produced.

Did you know that yellow if is the most preferred color followed by pink then lavender. Peeps have been a part of my Easter for a long time.
