Easter or not, I enjoy some delicious candy no matter what time of the year it is. I have a sweet tooth and there`s just no denying it. I mean I`d love to tell you all I`m as fit as a fiddle and avoid the junk, but that`s not me in the least bit. I try to make healthier decisions when it comes to meal time, but when it comes to the snacks and junk food - I just have at it! Fattening, Sugary, etc; I welcome it all! It`s horrible to say, I know, but it`s the truth. One thing I truly enjoy though is peeps. I particularly love the chocolate covered ones. Well I was recently welcomed to try out the new Peeps Minis! YUMMY!

We employ almost 600 associates, most of whom are at our world headquarters in Bethlehem, PA. All Just Born candies are made in the USA. In 2009, Just Born opened its first retail store, PEEPSÂ® & Company, in National Harbor, MD. Since then, we have opened 2 more stores. One in the Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN and the other in The Outlets at Sands Bethlehem in Bethlehem, PA. You can also check out our online store at www.peepsandcompany.com Peeps Minis is available in 4 flavors: Chocolate Creme, Sour Watermelon, Strawberry Creme, and Vanilla Creme. I was sent all of the flavors with the exception of the vanilla to try out for myself and I thoroughly enjoyed each flavor! These are just like your typical peeps, but smaller (24 peeps per bag) and of course in flavors rather than the traditional peep taste. While chocolate covered peeps are still my favorite of the Peeps collection, I found these were delicious as well. Each flavor tasted like the flavor it represented. The chocolate had a light chocolate flavor to it. The strawberry Creme had a light strawberry flavor to it. The sour watermelon had a light sour watermelon , sour punch straw, sort of taste to it; but I found it honestly wasn`t all that sour. I love that these only have 14 calories per chick & no fat. One chick is approximately 2.5" tall - bite sized. My peeps arrived fresh and all in tact. They don`t look as "pretty and presentable" as you see the boxed peeps at Easter, but honestly I don`t care about that. These make great stocking stuffer, gift basket add ins, or just a delicious treat to enjoy for the family!
