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
