I love the Peeps contests. The WhooPeep pie sounds like something the grandkids would love too, that's a good idea for leftover Peeps. If there is such a thing, probably not with my mother around, she loves them.

A lot of time and Peeps!

Gotta love a peep.
I do a peep show every year, (with peeps, haha).
I just use the same ones...I have the whole gang from years ago on my studio shelf in a zip-lock. Just a photo crazy for friends and family e-card.

Don't usually eat them but on the top of a yummy, they do fair well with the hit of a torch. Children may scream, then laugh.

Thanks for posting the contest winners. Such creativity and imagination!

I live in PeepLand because our valley is the home of Just Born Candies, creator and manufacturer of Peeps. They sponsor a PeepFest during the week between Christmas and New Year's. There is a Peep diorama contest for elementary school classes and the winning projects are on display.

This was a first grade one:

Outdoor activities include toasting Peeps for Peep S'mores.

What fun!

I found out not everyone is a Peeps follower. I had a total of 9 job interviews with a company; one of the interviews was a 45 minute multimedia presentation in front of a group of managers and supervisors. It was in the Spring and trying to keep it light, I gave the audience their group bio...they were all employees of Just Born Candies and we were challenged with creating a new Peep color. I saw a blank look on their faces. NOT ONE of them knew what Peeps were!

Just Born, fabulous company. I worked with them when I did leadership training. That was actually a great idea Mustangs, they have managed to keep a family owned business going for 87 years. They take what they do very seriously, but still manage to keep their sense of humor. Great business strategy, IMHO. Particularly if you are in the candy business.

Oh thanks for the link. What fun. My favorite is Everyone Peeps. LOL.

I didn't buy any Easter candy this year. Feeling a bit guilty. I should have at least bought a box of Peeps.

You can still buy Easter candy. Maybe even half-price tomorrow!
