Easter may not be the best holiday ever, or the most celebrated, but it always gives us great joy to spend a Sunday scarfing down Cadbury Creme Eggs, chocolate bunnies, and jellybeans. I'm told some lucky kids find toys and games inside their Easter baskets. Easter is a once and done deal for too many people. As a kid you can drag your parents to just about every egg hunt in the area in exchange for a mall photo of you with the Easter Bunny. As an adult it doesn't bring much more than an excuse to fill up on sweets.

There's one sweet that has become synonymous with Easter, and that's Peeps, a sugar-coated marshmallow candy made by Just Born in Bethlehem, PA. Over the years Peeps have exploded all over the place, even taking on other holidays and opening their own Fan Club. They've also started merchandising beyond your wildest imagination. It started one day at Big Lots, I was just going to buy one or two Peeps pieces. Then the quest began. A dozen stores and a weeks pay later, I had more Peeps things to review than I can handle.

Keep checking back for more Peeps fun!
