It’s Easter and the Kids Want to Know – Mommy, Where Do Peeps Come From?

It’s Easter Sunday and the kids have found their Easter baskets by now. My boys found theirs just a little while ago and of course, each of them had several packages of Peeps – the most famous marshmallow treat in the world. Did you know that two billion Peeps are produced each year, with one billion being specifically for Easter? My son Evan actually asked us this morning where Peeps come from, which meant I had to do some quick research so I could have an intelligent conversation with my son about where Peeps come from and how they are born.

It turns out, the company that makes the iconic marshmallow treat is called The Just Born Candy Company in Bethlehem, Pa., where they have been making Peeps since 1953 – meaning Peeps are 60-years-old this year…who knew?

Company executive Mark Wright gives us a tour of the factory and shows us exactly how Peeps are born, which is actually kinda cool in a strange sort of way. Okay, not really, but it’s Easter so, let’s take a look so you know exactly what to tell your kids when they want to know…even better, just have them watch this video. Happy Easter from my family to yours.
