Good news for those who have missed the sickenly sweet popular Easter marshmallow candy PEEPS, they're coming back to stores! According to a news release, PEEPS is hatching some new flavors as well as new merchandise.

PEEPS had been out of production for nine months, but rest assured, they will return to shelves this Spring. Along with a line of merchandise that includes a Kellog's PEEPS cereal, the two new flavors are HOT TAMALES Fierce Cinnamon Flavored Marshmallow Chicks and the PEEPS Froot Loops Flavored Pop.

Other nationwide PEEPS offerings include:

  • PEEPS Rainbow Marshmallow Chick Pop
  • PEEPS Cotton Candy Flavored Marshmallow Chicks
  • PEEPS Party Cake Flavored Marshmallow Chicks
  • PEEPS Sour Watermelon Flavored Marshmallow Chicks
  • PEEPS Fruit Punch Flavored Marshmallow Chicks
  • PEEPS Root Beer Float Flavored Marshmallow Chicks
  • PEEPS Chocolate Pudding Flavored Marshmallow Bunnies

Easter lands on April 4th this year, so I'm sure that as soon as Valentine's day is over, we can expect to see the PEEPS pop up on shelves soon after. With the pandemic being long and some companies having to stop production, this may put a smile on many lovers of the PEEPS.

I, however, can't say I missed them. To begin with, I've never been a sweets fan. A couple of years ago, when I first started on the Morning Show, we had a PEEPS challenge where we stuffed PEEPS into our mouth and tried to recite movie quotes. It didn't end well for everyone, also PEEPS dissolve quickly. Now, every time I see them on the shelves for Easter, I shudder.
