Not a peep from the Just Born factory
Like most other businesses, the Just Born production line has halted for the time being, but Peep enthusiasts (and those who still eat Mike & Ikes and Hot Tamales) don't have to worry.1 The company had already fulfilled and shipped its orders for Easter 2020.
There are five new flavors this year:2 Froot Loops, Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon, Raspberry Dipped in Crème Fudge, Root Beer Float, and Chocolate Pudding. Just Born also unveiled Peeps-flavored jelly beans and individually wrapped mini-Peeps.
While it's uncertain when hatching will resume (allegedly April 7 is the day), workers at the factory take their jobs seriously and recently won a benefit dispute with Big Marshmallow regarding withheld pension benefits.3 Power to the peeps.
