Halloween is officially behind us, which means it’s time to start thinking about the winter holidays.

Peeps already offers a seasonal gingerbread men marshmallow, but they’re regular-sized and that’s not as much fun. This year, they’re available in a supersized version — because go big or go home, right? Shoppers can find them in one-count stocking-stuffer-sized packages and three-count share sizes, all of which range from suggested retail prices of $1 to $1.79. According to a release from the company, each giant gingerbread man has 110 calories. They’re also fat-free and gluten-free. That means they’re healthy, right? No? Fine.


Returning seasonal flavors include candy cane-flavored chicks, Christmas cookie-flavored chicks dipped in white fudge, hot chocolate-flavored chicks dipped in white fudge, peppermint bark-flavored chicks dipped in white fudge, vanilla crème chicks, marshmallow trees, snowmen and chocolate mousse-flavored reindeer. It’s safe to say that if you like sugar or chocolate-coated marshmallows, there are plenty of options this year. In addition to making holiday treats, here are 15 fun facts you probably didn't know about Peeps.
