Peeps are the ultimate Easter basket stuffer and have been delighting kids and adults alike with their marshmallow concoctions since 1953. (Though back in 1953 Peeps were shaped by hand and took 27 hours to create… one.). What began as simple, sweet chick and bunny confection has expanded to include year-round marshmallows including pumpkin-shaped Peeps and reindeer-shaped variants; Peep bath bombs and plushies; and an assortment of flavors that range from surprising to delicious to less than pleasurable.
In honor of the ultimate Peeps season -- spring -- I decided to try all the Peep flavors that are currently available. This ranking includes marshmallows that are only shaped like sweet little chicks, and the judgment is based on overall flavor, texture, and -- if I’m being real -- how cute and appetizing these sweet little sugary friends are.
