How 5.5 Million Peeps Are Made For Easter | Big Business

Just Born makes 2 billion Peeps a year in their Bethlehem, PA factory. Peeps make up 70% of Just Born’s annual revenue, and their peak sales season is Easter. Every year people fill Easter baskets, make dioramas, and have competed in eating challenges with these marshmallow treats.
Editor's Note: This video incorrectly states that Peeps make up 70% of Just Born’s sales. Instead, Easter accounts for 70% of annual Peep sales. Our apologies.

  • Last year our Michael's had sooooo many Peeps and Easter eggs/ baskets left over from the pandemic hitting at such a bad time, they were bagging them up and selling entire garbage bags full for $5. When I went back with my daughter, they told her to take 2 extra bags (3 for $5), because they would "just have to throw it in the garbage if they couldn't sell them." For $10 I got 15 baskets, 20 boxes of bunnies (3 rows, not the skimpy 2 from this year), 5 boxes of chicks, somewhere between 200 - 300 plastic eggs, and about a dozen bags of fake grass and about a dozen squishy and/or light up bunnies and chicks, (plus a bunch of other weird rando stuff they had on clearance like a Himalayan salt lamp) That might have been why they had very few peeps for sale this year....

  • interesting, 'nobody can actually see the chicks being formed' sort of like real life as a person who has chickens, when they are setting on eggs you can't actually see the chicks being formed. You can candle the 'real' egg to see if there's life or not but can't see the chicks being formed.
