Peeps are one of the most divisive of candies, drawing some in with their sweet, sugary goodness and adorable appearance, and horrifying others with their strange, artificial flavors and squishy texture. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, you can't deny that these strange little Easter candies elicit a strong reaction. Along with eating these sweets around Easter time (or anytime for that matter), there are a number of Peeps-themed contests, like the Peeps Art & Diorama Contests in which people make art out of these little candies. Whether you plan on snacking away on them or putting them in your diorama, Peeps fans everywhere should know that there are six new flavors to enjoy.
Peeps took a 9-month hiatus during the Coronavirus pandemic, causing sadness in the hearts of many a candy-lover. However, this ended in winter of 2021, and Peeps came back with new flavors to make up for their absence. This year, the candy company outdid itself with not one or two new flavors, but six! Although some prefer to stick to the classics, opting for simple pastel-colored Peeps of original flavors, some are more than happy to give these new options a try.
On the line-up this year, one can find fruity varieties, coffee-themed Peeps and even a new Peeps pop. There's no better way to fill up your Easter basket than with brand-new flavors of this beloved Easter candy!
Here are the new Peeps flavors and all of the Peeps available to enjoy this season!
