Marshmallow peeps by Just Born Candy Company are the top selling non chocolate Easter candy for more then 20 years now. Chewy sugar coated marshmallow in the shape of chicks and ducks. Yellow chicks were the first color , however they now come in a variety of different colors.

Although peeps were originally just and Easter candy, they have now come out in different varieties for all the holidays. You can get heart shaped ones for Valentine's Day, Pumpkins and Ghosts for Halloween and Trees and snowmen for Christmas. The just recently added chocolate covered peeps and sugar free peeps to their line.

Just born acquired the peeps candy line in 1953 and has been making the marshmallow peeps ever since.

Here are some fun facts about peeps you probably didn't know.

It took 27 hours to make just one peep from start to finish, in the beginning they were made with a pastry tube. Thank goodness for modern technology as now it only takes 6 minutes to make a peep. Just born turns out 2 million peeps a day.

The preferred way to eat peeps are head first 60 % of peep lovers eat them this way. 40 % stretch the neck first then eat them. 10 % claim they eat the whole peep at onceā€¦. No one admits to eating the belly or the butts first, but then again i wouldn't either.

Fresh , Stale or Hot ? Which is your favorite way to eat a peep ? Although the majority of peeps are consumed when the are fresh , 19 % eat them when they are stale and 11 % eat them frozen. Have you ever tried them in hot chocolate ? 10 % of peep lovers at them to their hot chocolate and say it is simply delicious.

Some even microwave peeps. I have never tried this method of eat peeps, but those who do say they are delicious. There is a technique to doing this . When you microwave your peeps we warned the can grow up to 5 times their size for chewy , goody fun, however if they are left in too long you have one huge sticky mess to clean up.

Whats your favorite color ? Yellow and whites peeps were the first colors available in peeps and Yellow is still the number seller followed by pink. They are also available in lavender, blue, green and orange.

There are enough peeps made in one year that you could circle the earth twice with them. If you stand the peep bunnies on top of one another it would take 8000 of these little guys to reach the tops of the sears tower.

I have been a lover of peeps ever since I can remember, however here is a fun fact that I don't recall. At one time the chicks had wings. 1991 was the first year they began making peeps without the wings.

Although peeps are found in more then 60% of the Easter baskets, you may be surprise to know that more then 51 million adults admit to be addicted to peeps.

So now you know probably more then you can to know about Easter Peeps. Which ever color peep you like, what ever way you eat your peeps just remember they are only available for the holidays to stock up so you have enough to last till next time around.

Can anyone remember back to a day when almost every neighborhood kid had a clubhouse or fort? While some clubhouses had special handshakes and passwords that gained you entrance, others required a special admittance fee. Perhaps it was the secrecy surrounding membership in the club and maybe it was simply the anticipation of the sweet, sugary goodness that would pile up on the clubhouse floor, but whatever it was, candy time during clubhouse meetings was certainly one of the highlights. From Gummy Worms to Necco wafers to Jujubes to Charms Sweet-and-Sour Pops, any and all forms of candy were always welcome at the clubhouse!

Mini Cadbury eggs were first produced in 1967. In the United Kingdom they are produced by the Kraft Company, however in the US they are under the Hershey name.

These chocolate eggs are one of the most purchased chocolate candies for the Easter season with over 200 million sold. That's a lot of creme eggs seeing they are only available from January through April.

These creme eggs as we know them today were not available in the states until 1971. The first Cadbury eggs were made in the Uk by the Cadbury brothers and were available in the early 1920's. Today these eggs are manufactured in the United Kingdom by Kraft company, but in the USA they are manufactured by Hershey's.

Most people think that the eggs are made in one piece then the filling is added. You may be surprise to know that they are made in two pieces. The chocolate is molded in two separate sections. The fondant is then added, the white filling is added both half of shells , then the yellow is added. Once the yellow is added the two halves are quickly placed together and cooled. The egg then bonds together.

O'Ryans Village sells your favorite eggs either by the box, which you get 48 creme eggs or you can purchase them just one egg at a time.
We also have Cadbury caramel eggs, a delicious caramel filled egg and of course everyone's favorite mini eggs. With them being only available for a few months through out the year they sell out very fast. Get your's today before they are gone.
