Some interesting facts about Peeps for you which I got from my local paper, The Metro:
*Peeps eyes are made from Canauba wax. The same kind of wax for your car. Ewww. Got that information from Niel.
*Peeps have fans around the globe. 72,000 of which are enrolled in the official fan club www.marshmallowpeeps.com. Other peep clubs www.lordofthepeeps.com, www.peepresearch.org, and www.peepshow.com.
*Peeps are born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I am so lame. I aslo know Bethlehem is also the hometown of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Heh heh.
*Peeps have a shelf life of 24 months.
*Some folks like me prefer to eat them fresh, others aged or frozen.
