At Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, we wish you the happiest or Easter! Enjoy your treats, our Peeps!
In 1953, it took 27 hours to make a single Peep Marshmallow. Today, at the Peeps factory in Bethlehem, PA, it takes just 6 minutes per Peep. In fact, more than 5.5 million chicks are hatched per day. Yellow chicks are the ORIGINAL. Yellow Peeps (chicks and bunnies) are the most popular, followed by pink, lavender, blue, then white.
For the past 20 years, no other non-chocolate Easter candy has been able to compete with Peeps. During Easter, Peeps even outsell jelly beans.
Americans will eat more than 600 million Marshmallow Peeps and Bunnies this Easter. Some popular ways to eat Peeps: stale, microwaved, frozen, roasted, in s’mores or served as toppings on pizza.
Enjoy your Peeps any way you like this Easter – April 5th.
