In 2020 there were no Marshmallow Peeps for Halloween or Christmas as the company that makes them, Just Born Quality Confections, shut down production because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The factory in Pennsylvania closed in April of last year, and they won't even have any peeps for Valentine's Day this year. However, they are putting all of their efforts into bringing the sweet treats back for Easter!
Just Born also makes Hot Tamales cinnamon candy, so they've created Hot Tamales Marshmallow Peeps. They're also introducing Froot Loops cereal flavored Peeps Pops...multi-colored chicks stacked up on a stick.
