PEEPS® marshmallow candies aren’t just for Easter anymore! People who love the sweet treats can enjoy them on all kinds of holidays now, and since our new PEEPS collection will soon be appearing in your local quilt shops, we thought we’d share a few PEEPS fun facts with you. Did you know…
52 million PEEPS are made in an 8-week period for Easter sales
21 million families purchase peeps each year
Easter candy as a whole is a $2.6 billion industry
Key consumers spend about $170.00 on Easter, which includes $24.00 worth of candy
PEEPS cannot walk, change expression or talk. They only communicate through text bubbles ; )
PEEPS people also tend to be avid crafters, so we know you’ll love the fabrics as much as the candies. We’re thinking Easter basket liners, quilts, pillows, table settings, soft-sculpture chicks and bunnies, and sew much more!
