It’s a sad, Peeps-less Halloween this year!
If you were looking forward to your favorite seasonal Peeps flavors this Halloween and Christmas, we’re sorry to be the bearer of bad news! Just Born has announced that production of these marshmallow Peeps will be suspended until Spring 2021, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The company has decided to pause the production of other holiday-themed treats to prepare for the overwhelming demand of Easter instead when US consumers typically buy 1.5 billion Peeps treats.
Yup, that means no Christmas tree Peeps, no Valentine’s Day Peeps, and worst of all, no ghost-shaped Peeps, which my kiddos are especially fond of.
They also made this decision so they would be able to continue to produces their other everyday favorites, including Mike & Ike and Hot Tamales candies.
However, don’t despair! Just Born fully expects seasonal treats, including their full lineup of Peeps, to return to shelves by Halloween 2021.
