With warming weather and blooming flowers, no sweet treat is better aligned with springtime than PEEPS®. Tracing back to the 1920’s, Rodda Candy Company began producing marshmallows shaped as chicks, coated in vibrantly colored sugar. Originally produced as a treat exclusive to Easter, the chicks were first meant to be a symbol of new life, a concept often associated with springtime. After being acquired by Just Born Candy Company in the 1950’s, the once seasonal sweet treat was able to be mass produced and quickly became a favorite all around the world. Peeps have become a staple and favorite to many, now branching into other shapes, flavors, and holidays. From Halloween pumpkins to lavender bunnies, Peeps can be a sweet treat for every occasion, but nothing represents the iconic snack as well as the original yellow chick.
Just Born Candy Company
In 1923, a Russian immigrant with a love for creating candy, Sam Born, created Just Born Candy Company. What originally started with his invention that automatically inserted the stick into a lollipop would become a company that makes several of the world’s most popular candies today.
With a devotion to high quality ingredients, Just Born continues to innovate their products by adding new colors, designs, and flavors.
