Power to the Peeps!
El Nino Peep


Dali Peep


Pet Peep


Deconstructing Peeps

It takes six minutes to make a Peep.

In 1953, it took 27 hours to make a Peep; the recipe required new Peeps to sit overnight.

Then, Peeps were squeezed out of a pastry tube one at a time and the eyes were painted by hand. Now modern technology can make 3,500 Peep eyes per minute.

One urban myth about Peeps is that their black-dot eyes are made of tar. Not true. They are made of wax.

As many as 2-million Peeps a day roll off the conveyor belts at Just Born Inc.

About 30 percent of Peep eaters like them stale, though Just Born wraps Peeps within six minutes to keep them fresh.

Some people freeze Peeps. Some microwave them. Or roast them. There are those who use Peeps as pizza topping.

Each Peep has 32 calories and is fat-free. A five-chick serving is 160 calories and a jolting 36 grams of sugar.
