The Just Born Company, makers of PEEPS, recently announced that PEEPS will now be available year round. Sugary, marshmallowy PEEPS chicks and bunnies have been an Easter basket tradition since the early 1950s, when Sam Born purchased a marshmallow chick recipe from another candy company and figured out how to mass produce them.
In the last several years, we’ve seen hundreds of creative uses for PEEPS. From crafts to recipes, PEEPS have recently crossed over into the world of art and even fashion. The Just Born Company, newspapers across the U.S. and even museums (Racine Art Museum, the Carroll County Arts Council and Riverfront Arts Center to name a few) have started hosting PEEPS diorama contests, art shows, Easter bonnet parades and fashion Shows.
This year we scoured the web to find examples of PEEPs-made fashion. We think Project Runway should do an “unconventional challenge” using PEEPS one of these years! Enjoy the pics below and remember, you can buy PEEPS, gifts and fan gear year round at the PEEPS website through ShopforMuseums.com. And with each ShopforMuseums.com shopping trip, you can donate a percentage of your purchase amount to your favorite museum or related organization.
