Halloween will be here before you know it, and one of the fastest ways to get yourself in the spooky mood is to stock up on themed goodies. Fortunately, Peeps is returning for the holiday season this year with new shapes to choose from, including skulls and pumpkins. After missing out on the marshmallow fun last year, you’ll definitely want to fill your candy bowl with these Halloween Peeps for 2021.
Just Born Quality Confections, the company behind the The empire of friends, announced a big comeback for Halloween candy on September 20, according to an email from the company to Elite – and they’re the perfect additions to your next spooky movie night. Since Just Born skipped Peeps’ annual Halloween 2020 launch due to the pandemic, the brand has taken it to the next level this year. There are two brand new shapes for 2021, Skulls and Pumpkins, to satisfy your sweet tooth as well as get back to your favorites. Classic Halloween Peeps shapes making an epic return this year (with new packaging, to boot!) Include ghosts, monsters, and cats.
You can find the selection of Halloween Peeps at retailers nationwide as they start to roll out. Peeps Skulls, Pumpkins, Ghosts, and Monsters will set you back $ 1 for a three account plan, while a six account plan goes from $ 1.49 to $ 1.79. If you go with Peeps Black Cats, it’ll set you back $ 1 for an account of four and between $ 1.49 and $ 1.79 for an account of eight. To help you decide how you’re going to sweeten up on October 31, here’s a look at the Halloween Peeps collection for 2021:
