Holiday Gift Guide: Peeps and Company, great holiday treats you will love!

Peeps, who doesn't love them?? They have been an Easter treat staple in our home for many years, but these days Peeps are so much more than just Easter treats, they are around all year long to enjoy. If you love Peeps you are going to love the new holiday treat selections. Here is a little more information about the new Peep flavors and shapes from the website:

It’s an argument I have had on many occasions what it better a fresh peep or a stale one? It’s not often you’ll hear someone tell you they like an item stale, that word it bad when it comes to food and candy but in this case it’s a good thing. A slightly stale peep reminds me of my childhood instantly and why I love them so much, it brings me right back to Easter morning and ripping into my basket to collect my goodies.
And it took me until I was an adult to figure out why my peeps as a child were better than the one’s I purchased as an adult. Candy was loose in the Easter basket therefore it was exposed to air and well got a little stale, so no one when I buy peeps I poke holes in the box and let them get just a little hard and to me there isn’t too many things better than a slightly stale peep. I could wax poetic about my love of peeps but there is so much more to the peep family than just those little tasty marshmallow peeps. Luck for us all, Peeps are not just for Easter anymore! 

They are available for just about all the holidays. The Christmas varieties are plentiful and look adorable.  We just loved all of the unique flavors and shapes. My favorite was the peppermint flavored Peeps that are dipped in chocolate, oh they are divine. They reminded me of one of my favorite peppermint candy, with a better marshmallow twist, they were great. My daughter loved the little snowmen, she thought they were delicious and so very cute.

These treats would make great stocking stuffers, and retail from .79 to $2.49. So they are very affordable, and of course very delicious.  So if you are looking for a great stocking stuffer for that special Peeps lover on your holiday gift list this year.
  I would highly recommend the new holiday Peeps shapes and flavors, that special someone will just love this on Christmas morning, or just a surprise for any day. Peeps & Company is home to some of our favorite candies such as Mike & Ike’s, Peanut Chews and a Hot Tamale’s as well.  Just Born makes candy that is great and invokes memories from my childhood that still put a smile on my face some 30 years later.
