This week, a “PEEPshow” was held in Maryland, where contestants entered their best piece of Peeps art. Many of the show’s contestants went the sculpture route and turned these marshmallow treats into some incredible  looking sculptures. Among the entries were sculptures of Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Potato Head, Prince’s symbol, along with many more.

Peeps have lost a bit of steam when in comes to popularity in 2017. Usually one of the top Easter candy choices, Peeps ranked as only the fifth most popular candy in 2017. It finished behind Hershey’s Eggs, jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and the most popular choice Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs.
