Peeps, the Perfect Easter Treat



When I think of Easter candy, I think of jellybeans and peeps, and of course chocolate, but i’m always thinking about chocolate. Peeps is just one of those candies that screams it’s Easter time! I love that over the years Peeps has branched out and has more flavors than ever.


There is a lot of sugar in Peeps, but if you can’t have sugar they also have sugar free options as well. They didn’t want people to miss out.


I’m pretty much a sucker for anything chocolate, so I figured my favorite would be the PEEPS® Chocolate Dipped Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Chicks, even though they were really good, I actually found the PEEPS® Sour Watermelon Flavored Marshmallow Chicks to be my favorite. They say sour, but I didn’t get a sour taste to them at all. They also didn’t taste like the other peeps. They are bigger so you will get 10 in a package.


PEEPS® Party Cake Flavored Marshmallow Chicks is a flavor that I haven’t had them before so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I can tell you that they really do smell like cake. My oldest daughter who doesn’t really like peeps smelled them and had to have one.


Now my husband was super excited when he saw the Hot Tamales jelly beans. I think he ate half the bag in one sitting. If you like the regular Hot Tamales, I bet you will love the jelly beans as well.

Jelly beans are my favorite when it comes to Easter candy (well second to chocolate) Mike and Ike makes ones that are oh so good. cherry, lemon, lime, pineapple and other flavors that other companies don’t have.

To see all the flavors of Peeps like PEEPS® Chocolate Dipped Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Chicks, PEEPS® PEEPSTERS®, PEEPS® Decorated Eggs and so many more go to their site.

  1. Peeps are an Easter must have in the baskets. We go to my moms for Easter brunch and the kids get to find eggs and get an extra basket of goodies. Grandmas are good for that lol.

  15. My Easter tradition always involves gathering with my family for a big home-cooked meal. Afterwards, we adults go out and hide the candy-filled eggs and then let the kids "hunt" for them. I always celebrate Easter with a package (or ten) of Peeps. :) Great review!

  22. It would be Easter without Peeps. I try to limit my goodies, but I have to have my Peeps on Easter! We have Easter dinner and now that everyone is older, I make a basket with goodies that we all share. Except for my Peeps. They know better. Of course, I share them but that's up to me.

  37. Our Easter tradition begins the day before when we color eggs, bake our coconut covered bunny cake and fill our 2 granddaughters (sisters) Easter baskets with candies and a plush bunny. On Easter morning we go to church and when we return we enjoy a big breakfast. Then the granddaughters get their baskets which also contain PEEPS. I'm looking forward to seeing our 2 grown children and 2 granddaughters for Easter soon.

  43. We used to have a tradition of an Easter egg hunt at my mother's house, followed by dinner, a game for prizes that matched numbers in the eggs. Then the traditional grand prize the dime dip. A pan of dimes is put down, and you get one chance to get as many dimes in your hand as possible. My brother always would win because he had bigger hands. The one with the most dimes won the money. My brother would always have between 22.00-to 27.00 in dimes. My mothers grandchildren are grown, they have children in another state. But if I get the chance I will continue it someday, if they don't grow up before I get to see them.

  47. This year I am very excited. My family will be joining us for Easter this year. I have a brother and his family coming from New York & a sister and her family coming from Georgia. Usually, it is just me and my husband for Easter. We have a ham dinner. This year we are doing it up right, just like we did when I was a kid. We have grandchildren and nieces and nephews coming. We will be hiding eggs, making baskets for the kids, and watching Here comes Peter Cottontail. When the kids get settled the adults will be watching "The Passion" which I recorded on DVD. Hosted by Tyler Perry. It's a modern day version of our Lord Jesus Rising from the Grave.

  48. Our loose tradition is to go to church and then come home and make a dish to share. Then we head to our friend's home for an annual Easter Egg hunt. The kids look forward to it all year! It's so fun to hide the eggs and then watch as the little ones look high and low for them!

  50. My kids are grown now so we don't do much at Easter. Used to do the usual coloring of the Easter eggs, hiding baskets and eggs. Ham dinner would be nice but have not even done that in some time.

  51. One of our favorite Easter traditions is coloring the eggs. We love getting creative and we'll use the leftover dye to tie dye t-shirts :)
