Did anyone get those sugary marshmallow treats this year?
I'm gonna tell ya some facts ya might be surprised to hear.
Peeps were born in Bethlehem, PA in 1953.
Folks didn't like the wings so they couldn't let them be.
In 1955 the wings were clipped for a sleek, modern look.
The yellow chick remains the favorite in the history book.
It only takes six minutes to make a Peep.
People buy enough to fill up a Jeep.
In one year the factory makes enough to circle the earth twice.
That's more infestation than a head full of lice!
Neither microwave, water or acid can destroy that sucker.
It is so sweet, your mouth will certainly not pucker.
37,000 Peeps weigh as much as one boy band.
That is too many of either to have on hand!
On New Year's Eve Bethlehem drops a Peep in center square.
Try to top that rockin' celebration if you dare!
As cute as they are, I'm not really a fan of this holiday treat.
For me, good ol' chocolate just can't be beat!
