Marshmallow PEEPs: The History of a Favorite Easter Candy

When it comes to Easter candy, there’s plenty to choose from.  From chocolate peanut butter eggs and solid milk chocolate rabbits to colorful jelly beans and the most iconic treat of all… Marshmallow PEEPs.

Love them or hate them, Marshmallow PEEPs are included in every Easter basket and their popularity – as well as flavors and shapes – increases every year.  In fact, PEEPs are the #1 selling non-chocolate Easter candy!

These puffy marshmallow chicks, around for over 65 years, were originally made by hand to give them their unique shape.  Over the years, manufacturing has evolved and new shapes such as rabbits, hearts, Christmas trees have been added, and additional flavors introduced, all while keeping with the same simple recipe.

For Easter, there are a few different varieties of PEEPs including some new ones:

Original Marshmallow PEEPs
The original chick-shaped PEEP is still the most popular.  Originally made in yellow, white, and pink, additional colors were added in the 1990’s.  Today, in addition to the original colors, they are available in pink, purple, blue, green and orange.

Marshmallow PEEPs Bunnies
Not one of the original PEEPs shapes, the bunny was introduced in the 1980’s and has been a favorite ever since!  These are also available in a rainbow of colors.

Flavored Marshmallow PEEPs
Starting in 1999, PEEPS began to introduce different flavors to their famous marshmallow treats and for Easter there are PEEPs chicks and bunnies available in Chocolate PuddingCotton Candy, Fruit Punch,  and more!

Marshmallow PEEPs Eggs
There are chicks and bunnies and now there are PEEPs Easter Eggs!  One of the newer shapes to be added to the PEEPs line, these eggs come brightly decorated and have already become a fan favorite.

When it comes time to selecting which treats to put in your Easter basket, there’s no doubt that PEEPs will be included.  After all, there’s really no other Easter Candy that’s more iconic than these fluffy marshmallow creations. Plus, most are low in calories and are gluten and fat-free.

Be sure to check out the complete selection of Marshmallow PEEPs as well as all our Easter candy.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs – A Delicious Treat We Can’t Get Enough Of

Hands up if peanut butter Easter eggs are your favorite seasonal candy treat.  The delicious combination of creamy peanut butter drenched in milk or dark chocolate is a guilty pleasure many look forward to every year.  Many of our fans check our website daily waiting for their favorite brand to come in stock so they don’t miss out.  Yes, some are so popular they sell out quick!

One of the most popular is Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs.  Manufactured in Philadelphia from a recipe that has been handed down for generations, many regard Zitner’s as the “Cadillac” of Easter eggs.  Made just once a year, they’re a sweet indulgence you don’t want to pass up.  But don’t say we didn’t warn you – they sell out quick, so be sure to place an order before they’re gone.

The most famous name in the chocolate-peanut-butter world is none other than Reese’s.  While Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are available year-round, Easter time brings Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs in many different varieties that are only available once a year including a GIANT 6oz version.

Another favorite is Asher’s Peanut Butter Meltaway Egg.  This Pennsylvania company has been satisfying candy cravings since 1892 and their peanut butter cups are one of their most popular confectionaries.  Each Easter, they make small batches of Peanut Butter Meltaway Eggs that are simply mouthwatering.  Plus, they also have a sugar-free version that is just as delicious.

No matter what Peanut Butter Easter Egg is your favorite, there’s no doubt that there’s nothing better than the taste of peanut butter and chocolate.  To ensure you don’t miss out on having your favorite, be sure to check out all of our Easter Candy and place an order before they’re gone – after all, these sweet treats are only available once a year.

 

Zitner’s Easter Eggs – a Tradition for Nearly a Century

For chocolate fans, there’s no better time than Easter to indulge in many decadent treats created just for the holiday. Shortly after the Christmas decorations come down we start getting emails and calls from customers wanting to know if one of their favorites has arrived in stock yet – Zitner’s Eggs.

Zitner’s Candy, from Philadelphia, has been making chocolate eggs for nearly 100 years and they are extremely popular! How popular? Well, they sell over 6 million chocolate Easter Eggs every year. Each one is made with the original recipe that has been handed down for generations.

Fans of Zitner’s wait all year to get a taste of these scrumptious treats that come in a variety of flavors.

Zitner’s Butter Krak Eggs
A true fan favorite and one that has been featured on the Food Network. These delicious chocolate covered Easter Eggs have a sweet, creamy, buttery coconut filling and to get to it you have to break through the toasted coconut and dark chocolate shell. In the words of one of our customers, “these are the best Easter eggs ever!


Zitner’s Cocoanut Cream Eggs
These chocolate covered Easter eggs go out the door as quick as they come in, and for good reason. Inside this chocolate covered egg is the most delicious and creamy cocoanut filling you will ever taste. One bite and we’re sure you won’t be able to have just one.


 

Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs
Many regard Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs as the “best of the best” and we won’t argue with that! The combination of Zitner’s rich milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter filling makes our mouths water just thinking about this classic Easter candy.

While Easter may be several weeks away, we sell out of Zitner’s Easter Candy quickly, so be sure to order soon so the Easter Bunny can place these delicious sweets in your basket.
