Fifty years old and still sweet, fluffy, fat free and only 32 calories per "Peep"!
These marshmallow candy favorites have been around since 1953 and are still going strong. The "Peeps People" are outstanding, too. Last Easter they gave away nearly 350,000 coupons and delivered over 600,000 samples of their new bite sized chocolate treat called PEEPSTERS.
At only 32 calories per Peep and zero fat, it's about time something fun was also reasonably healthy!
The only downside is the sugar -- so even though a serving only amounts to 160 calories per five-chicks, do try to keep your snack to only one or two. Or, purchase the sugar free variety.
Sugar Free Peeps
Now people on sugar-restricted diets, or those just trying to reduce sugar intake, can enjoy Peeps sweetened with Splenda.
Individual yellow chicks available in 3-count packages. You can also find sugar free Peppermint Marshmallow Peep Stars and Sugar Free Pumpkin Marshmallow Peeps.
