Love them or hate them, is it even Easter without Peeps?
The iconic marshmallow candies have been filling Easter Baskets for decades, but this year parent company Just Born is releasing seven new flavors just in time for the 2019 holiday, including: Cotton Candy, Pancakes and Syrup, Orange Sherbet Dipped in Crème Flavored Fudge, Root Beer Float, Chocolate Caramel Swirl, Blue Raspberry, and Vanilla Crème.
The new flavors come in the classic chick shape and are currently rolling out in stores nationwide from now until Easter.
If you’re looking to stock up, some of the new flavors are available only at select stores, so you’ll have to go on a bit of a hunt — good practice for finding your Easter basket later! Root Beer Float can only be found at Kroger, Blue Raspberry are excluding to Walmart, and Vanilla Crème and Chocolate Caramel Swirl are only at Target. Cotton candy, pancakes and syrup, and orange sherbet will be available at stores nationwide that sell Peeps.
New Peeps range in price from $1.69 to $2.69, depending on location and size of candy package. Or, you can simply put a good word in with the Easter Bunny — that is, if you can wait until April 21!
