The Just Born company started in 1910
To all my peeps out there, it is here that I will make my confession that "Peeps" those sugary, squishy, marshmallowy, gritty critters are my favorite Easter candy of all time. Note: The chicks came on the scene from 1940's-1950's. Look here if you want a "Peep in Time "
There are only two exceptions to my favorite candy rule on Easter and that is my Grandmother Lucia would always give us a round tin of Droste chocolates along with some Perugina Baci chocolate hazelnut kisses. I'm not sure how my Italian grandmother discovered these Netherland's chocolates but I loved these round disks of goodness that would melt in your mouth and miss receiving them from her.
Well that's all I have to say about candy, because on any other day I'd much prefer a crusty baquette.
Now for some creative Peep art:
I know there are some Project Runway fans out there. Have you seen this video?
Look here at these crazy wonderful diorama's created for:
Peeps Show II
*You may need to listen to 5 sec. commercial, but it's worth the wait.
Happy Spring! and thanks for stopping by!

Andrea, good candy taste must run in the family - Drostes, Peeps and baci are three of my favorites! Peeps are best when stale, don't you think? I rip the package open 2 weeks early for optimal stale-ness.
maybe stale is the way to go, cuz fresh is just too sweet for me. did you see cbs sunday morning today?
Sisters think alike! I do open the package and let them harden, also great frozen.
Sue- No, what did I miss? A Peepfest. I hope it wasn't something bad, like Petm- Prevention and Ethical treatment for marshmallows.
it was more peep art. you'd a loved the peep all dressed up to look like a pharoah. (i think it was a rerun.) have you ever blown up peeps in a microwave?
pardon me while im obsessed...delete my other comments if you want:
For peep sakes that was so creative! I have to say I like peeps if they are a little hard, but those orange creme peep eggs I like fresh!
I would have to say any type of chocolate is good to me! I love hazelnuts in the chocolate too! YUMMY!
Happy Easter! Me, I'm mostly about chocolate eggs and white rabbits this time of the year.
What happened to the old header? I don't know when you've changed it, because I've been reading you on Google reader, lazy me. I like them both, even though the sight of the corsets make me hyperventilate (restrictive underwear phobia I think).
I am addicted to Project Runway (although I am always disappointed with their ultimate choices).. That was hilarious!
Have you ever tasted the Swiss Cote d'Or chocolates?! mmmmmmmm yum!
Happy Easter to you!
You made it work, I was wowed.
I had two peeps today. Yellow ones. Marie likes them.
We also dyed 19 eggs - eggs salad days....
Have you seen the new Peeps Cookbook? Genius!
I remember Droste chocolate, of course, from wait back when I was a little girl, preferring the dark chocolate the best and liking the shape of them. I think I have had Peeps, because I seem to remember the taste of them, but I am not sure. I would love to try some now.
I have such a longing for chocolate and sweets now. I must find some! Where oh where do I find them? You sure know how to make a person develop a craving!
