Holiday Peeps on Pause Until 2021

Just Born Quality Confections, the company behind the famous Peeps marshmallow treats, announced it will not produce its iconic holiday sweets for Halloween or Christmas this year, or even Valentine’s Day next year. Production was put on hold in the spring as COVID-19 spread throughout Pennsylvania, where the company is based, and only partially resumed in May due to safety protocols. “This situation resulted in us having to make the difficult decision to forego production of our seasonal candies for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day,” said the company in a statement, “in order to focus on meeting the expected overwhelming demand for Peeps for next Easter season, as well as our everyday candies.” Get the full story here at Associated Press.
