Springtime, Easter & Passover Feature Package

1. PEEPS® Break Free from the Basket and Spring into New Traditions

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just Born Quality Confections is surely responsible for the sweetest sign of Spring with its iconic candy brand, PEEPS®. With 72 percent of people associating Easter with the first sign of Spring, it's no wonder that the yellow marshmallow chicks have had a lasting impression on American culture [*]. Although PEEPS® were hatched more than 60 years ago, the past decade brought PEEPS® to new heights, with the introduction of PEEPS® dipped and covered in chocolate or fudge, and innovative marshmallow flavors evoking tastes like party cake and sour watermelon. With the support of our fans, the PEEPS® brand continues to reinvent classic products, making way for new traditions to help express PEEPSONALITY® year round.
