Easter Day is a day for confetti eggs, Easter egg hunts, pictures with the Easter bunny, and Hot Tamale Peeps now! This is a crossover we would have never imagined, but hey, I'll take it. Our favorite Easter treats will now have a fierce cinnamon taste.
Many people who don't like Peeps think they're too sweet, so maybe these famous marshmallow chicks just needed a kick of heat! If you take a trip to your local grocery store, you might not have any luck finding Hot Tamale Peeps. So far, it looks like Kroger and Amazon are carrying these spicy cinnamon candies.
Lots of people weighed in on Instagram user candyhunting's picture of Hot Tamale Peeps. There are some mixed responses. If you're always up for a new spicy treat or snack, you're probably not grossed out by this unique crossover.
What are your thoughts? When I try to imagine the taste of Hot Tamale Peeps, the first thing that comes to mind is gingerbread men. I know it may sound strange but think about it. They're just going to be spicy and sugary chews!

Ahhh c’mon. If you’re going to give us Hot Tamale Peeps give us that fierce cinnamon taste. These have just a whisper of flavor. Good news if you’re unsure to try them. Bad news if you were hoping for that pop of cinnamon spiciness. Hot Tamale fans will be disappointed. I do appreciate the collaboration of classic candy and Peeps tho. 🐥👉🏻FOUND IN KROGER. #peeps #hottamales #hottamalepeeps #fiercecinnamon #justborn #peepsbrand #peepsonality #marshmallow #kroger #junkfood #peepseason
I think everyone ought to give them a try. I bet they're really tasty!
When shopping on Peeps & Company's website, you may notice that the Peeps Candy Marshmallow Chicks come in gift baskets by color. I think Peeps decided bright pastel colors weren't enough!
If you don't see the hype about Peeps, you'll find some of your other favorite candies from Peeps & Company. Enjoy a good ol' box of Hot Tamales, Mike and Ike, or Goldenberg's Peanut Chews. Oh wow, now I'm thinking of Halloween!
