Marshmallow Peeps® Fun Facts

Due to demand, Just Born now produces more than one billion individual Marshmallow Peeps a year covering all of its holiday seasons.

In 1953, it took 27 hours to create one Marshmallow Peep. Today, it takes six minutes.

During their early years, Marshmallow Peeps were squeezed one at a time out of a pastry tube and the eyes were painted on by hand. Now, technology can create 3,800 Peeps eyes per minute.

As many as 4.2 million Marshmallow Peeps, Bunnies, and other shapes are made each day at Just Born’s Bethlehem, Pennsylvania factory.

Last Easter, more than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps and Bunnies were consumed by men, women, and children throughout the United States.

Strange things people like to do with Marshmallow Peeps: eat them stale, microwave them, freeze them, roast them, and use them as a pizza topping.

Marshmallow Peeps and Bunnies come in five colors and received new packaging in 2000.

Yellow Peeps are the most popular, followed by pink, lavender, blue, and white.

Each Peep has 32 calories (160 calories per five-chick serving) and 0 fat grams.

Each year Just Born receives thousands of letters, e-mails, and phone calls from consumers acknowledging their passion for Peeps.

Currently Listening: “Electronic Renaissance” – Belle and Sebastian.

click, click, click away
lines deepen, eyes brazen, gaps widen
one, two, three, four
quarter rotation after one full rotation.
uno, dos, tres, quatro
symphonies left half composed,
treasure hunting a story untold
click, click, click away

the sun will be up in a couple hours. listen hard enough and hear the songs of the birds. i have yet to have my breath stolen by a magnificent sunrise. i hear there’s a spot in the greek isles where the sun sets perfectly each night. i’d like to see that before i die. there are a lot of things i’d like to do before i die. i’ll list them one of these days. it’s extensive, i’m sure of it. death is only tragic when the checklist lists more “to do” than “done”.

haha. me, trying to be inspirational at 4:30 in the morning. delirious, incoherent ramblings. good night, all you beautiful people.
