Cannot seem to figure out out of ALL the candy in the world how the sugar-covered marshmellows we all know as PEEPS landed their own shop. America’s first Peeps & Company opened at National Harbor Thursday. With more than 850 products to choose from.. in addition to the soft guys.. we’re talking t-shirts, key chains, blow-up peeps and even tablewear. Just Born Inc is behind the business and while I can think of a hundred different sweets that would make a sweeter store I admit I plan to pop in. The sugar heads are so darn cute. Plus.. the candy maker is based in Bethlehem PA- the beloved hometown of OMG ultimate peep Kristina Dorville. (right)
So while we’re on the soft topic I figured I’d share my favorite PEEP show.
I’m also prompted to start a list of candy I would LOVE to see a store made of:
- Hot Tamales
- Peanut Butter M&MS
