Update, March 2, 2020 10:46 a.m.: Well, it looks like just when we thought we were out of the Peeps announcement game for the year, the brand pulled us right back in. There are still some surprises on the way as we lead up to Easter including these Sour Watermelon Peeps.
These were spotted by Instagrammer @i_need_a_snack_. They’re green on the outside and pink on the inside, much like an actual watermelon. These, unlike many other Peeps flavors though, are sour, which might seem off-putting at first. But @i_need_a_snack_ said that the flavors are actually balanced pretty well.
“I think one reason why it works so well is because the sour is very subtle and mild so it’s not overtaking the whole flavor, so you still have that iconic Peeps marshmallow taste front and center!” they wrote.
So there you have it! Yet another Peep to add to your list. You can find these in slightly different packaging on Amazon.
Update, February 19, 2020 10:22 a.m.: It may only be February but Peeps already announced a ton of its Easter offerings for this year and they’re SO thrilling.
You can check out the full listing below, but we’ll be sure to update this post if we see anything else out there.

Update, February 18, 2020, 10:16 a.m.: As we get closer and closer to spring, more Peeps products are finally hitting stores. And this year, it seems like we’re going to be getting more than ever before. Case in point? Instagrammer @Junkfoodonthego spotted Cotton Candy Peeps back in stores for Easter.
These are much like your classic Peeps but they are made to taste like sugary candy floss (which is just…sugar? Who knows!). They’re even pink with blue specks to look like classic cotton candy. You can find those at Big Lots.
If cotton candy doesn’t float your boat, though, you can also try out these new Froot Loop-flavored Peeps on a stick. They’re rainbow and are supposed to taste pretty similar to the cereal, which can’t be a bad thing. If you want to go more classic? Birthday cake Peeps have been spotted at Target once again too.
If you’re a Peeps superfan, you can also get Easter grass to line your basket that smells like Peeps too. Like I said! Big year to be a Peeps fan.
Original, February 14, 2020 4:41 p.m.: Can you feel that in the air? It’s nearly Peeps season, baby! Valentine’s Day is pretty much behind us, which means that the next candy-centric holiday is Easter, which means we have a LOT OF TIME to eat Peeps from now until April. And that’s great because Peeps has blessed us with a ton of things to be psyched about.
First up are these Peeps jelly beans spotted by Instagrammer @JunkFoodOnTheGo. These are a bit different from last year’s packs which included one fruit flavor each alongside a marshmallow flavor. This year, all the flavors (lemon, strawberry, blueberry, and marshmallow) live together in harmony via a variety pack.
These were spotted at Big Lots for only $1 so get your carts ready.
Of course if jelly beans aren’t your style, there are countless other Peeps to choose from. We have already told you about Peeps cereal and Peeps coffee creamer, as well as Hot Tamales Peeps. And you can pretty much guarantee your classic Peeps will be back on shelves. But for now we’ll just have to keep waiting to see what other marshmallow chicken-related news that comes down the pipe. And I promise, I will be there to deliver it to you.
If you have Peeps fever (sounds scary, get that checked out…), you can visit their official shop to get a ton of flavors that are currently on shelves and many that are not. You can also pick up super cute things like Peeps stuffed animals and Peeps Funko figures because why not? Easter will be here before you know it!
