BriCamillucci Hey Bri! Can we debunk this one? Peeps only come out at Easter.

U;tra-processed, plant-based poultry begone.


You won’t hear a peep out of Trump though.

I literally have a reserve of these stocked in my kitchen cabinet.

Well, this sucks.

Where all my peeps at?

Hey naomiroslyn - you okay


Should be the norm anyways. Only acceptable time to eat a Peep is 3 weeks after Easter once stale

Who eats peeps for Christmas or Halloween? I've only seen them during Easter

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! Must. Have. Peeps!

So there is a plus side to the pandemic👍🏽

Good! Hate those things

I thought that was easter?🤔

And when you gone, you stay gone. Or you be gone. Dig?


As long as they still put out plushies for dogs.


I tried those once and I almost threw up

They are only in season during Easter.

You have literally one job Peeps factory. ONE! Produce holiday themed sugar-coated, bird shaped marshmallows.



jsunshinegerard omg 2020 sucks 😭

Good. Peeps are for Easter. For the same reason we don't give out candy canes on Valentine's day & Easter. Once a year is enough.


In case the link goes down:

2020, I’m fucking done. DONE.

2020 is looking up!

The world needs to hear about the duplicity and hypocrisy of the mainstream media swamp influencing opinion polls with lies and fabrications to shore up the political weight of candidates of their choice. CNN,MSNBC.etc. are really evil and Americans must wake up to this reality!

This is so heartbreaking. Never knew these were so hated until reading the replies. I’m one of the few who enjoyed these. And candy corn since I’ve seen people comparing the two

Gone ahead and get rid of the regular ones too

I know RickMammana won't stand for this. Somebody do something This is more than he can stand. He loves his peepsza. With orange soda.

They are poison

no peeps :(


The first positive thing!

No Peeps 😢 and realDonaldTrump is POTUS One more reason voting for JoeBiden

Peeps are my all-time favorite candy. I'm crushed

Wow I didn't know that peeps spread rona!!

I love peeps...

Oh no! How will we survive? Must be ClimateChange or maybe peeps got the Rona?

This is news!?!

TikTok saved my business: Candy retailer finds internet fame as COVID-19 forces a pivot“TikTok is the one that really, truly saved our business.' Nema Causey's candy store in San Diego was in trouble when the pandemic hit. Then she pivoted to TikTok and started taking online orders. Chinese PR offensive against US is starting. China is very good at cultivating US media agencies and in buying their loyalties. Good thing instagram copied them and added reels.
