No Holiday ‘Peeps’ This Year Due To Pandemic
PEEPS ON PAUSE: POPULAR CANDY WON'T BE IN HALLOWEEN BASKETS OR CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS THIS YEAR DUE TO TEMPORARY, CORONAVIRUS-RELATED PRODUCTION HALT
(CNN) – The popular candy Peeps won’t be in Halloween baskets or Christmas stockings this year, due to a coronavirus related temporary production halt.
It gives us one more trick and one less treat here in the back half of what has been a crazy 2020.
Just-born-quality confections, the company that makes peeps, says it suspended production of its candy brands in April to protect its employees’ health.
As a result the company says the holiday-themed marshmallow treats won’t be back in stores until 2021.
Valentine’s Day peeps will also be unavailable this coming February.
The company resumed limited production in May.
