Fill Your Easter Baskets with Just Born Quality Confections - #PEEPSONALITY Review

I received products for review from Just Born Retail Group.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 

PEEPS are a representation of the good of Easter. The delicious marshmallow treats have always been a staple in my children's Easter baskets. Although my kids are older and don't believe in all aspects of the "magic" of Easter, they still love to receive baskets filled with goodies.  PEEPS, along with other confections from the Just Born company, are perfect basket fillers for the springtime holiday.  In addition, you can purchase other gifts, candy, and apparel from PEEPS & Company to make any Easter basket complete. 
I love that the classic iconic PEEPS always comes out with new additions, without compromising the already great taste. PEEPS and other Just Born candies can serve as Easter basket essentials, colorful additions to baked goods, and adorable accents to art projects and decorations.
There is a large variety of PEEPS available at select retailers and online at peepsandcompany.com.  Here are just a few:
 
PEEPS Lemon Delight Flavored Marshmallow Chicks Dipped in Lemon Fudge
PEEPS Orange Delight Flavored Marshmallow Chicks Dipped in Orange Fudge
  PEEPS Lime Delight Flavored Marshmallow Chicks Dipped in Lime Fudge
PEEPS Orange Crème Flavored Marshmallow Bunnies
 PEEPS Decorated Eggs
 PEEPS Party Cake Flavored Marshmallow Chicks.
PEEPS Chocolate Dipped Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Eggs
PEEPS Sour Watermelon Flavored Marshmallow Chicks
 
This list is just a small sampling of PEEPS available.  I also want to make a mention about the new PEEPS Mystery Flavored Chicks and Bunnies.  They are white in color and will keep you guessing.  Are they fruity, sour, or sweet?  Fans can guess the mystery flavor through facebook.com/peepsbrand. 
 
If PEEPS aren't your thing (although I can't imagine why they wouldn't be), there's always Mike and Ike, Hot Tamales, Peanut Chews, and Teenee Beanee gourmet jelly beans.  Any or all of them are a great Easter basket addition. 
 
Teenee Beanee gourmet jelly beans are available in four varieties - Americana Medley, Island Breeze, Country Retreats, and Luxor Licorice.  I used the Country Retreats jelly beans and added them to the tops of cupcakes.  The jelly beans gave an extra pop of flavor, with some of them being blueberry cobbler, banana cream pie, and strawberry cheesecake.

Mike and Ike Lollipops are an enjoyable flavor experience.  Each flavored sucker is hand crafted with Mike and Ike chewy candies molded inside. 
 
Mike and Ike Gourmet Caramel Popcorn Clusters were a new snack experience for us.  Packaged in a container, the caramel popcorn is drizzled with white chocolate and has pieces of Mike and Ike candies.  I put the popcorn in a Mason jar and set it out during a family event.  The popcorn was consumed rather quickly and was enjoyed both by children and adults.
At the same family event, I also filled other Mason jars with Just Born Jelly Beans that had an assortment of flavors and topped them with PEEPS Marshmallow Chicks.  They were a charming decoration for the table, and the guests liked eating the delicious treats.

For entertainment, here are some PEEPS® fun facts, which are unique and interesting:

Did you know…?

•Yellow is America's best-selling color of PEEPS® Chicks and Bunnies, followed by pink and then blue.

•Just Born produces enough PEEPS® Brand Marshmallow Candies in one year to circle the earth three times.

•Chicks rule! 4 out of every 5 PEEPS® purchased are Chicks – either flavored, dipped in chocolate, covered in chocolate or in the original un-flavored marshmallow form.

Will you be filling Easter baskets with PEEPS and Just Born candies and gifts this year?
