A monument to the marshmallow opens
OXON HILL, Md. (AP) - It's almost Christmas, but one company wants its fans thinking about chicks and bunnies year-round.
Just Born, maker of the chick- and bunny-shaped marshmallow Easter favorites called Peeps, is officially opening the first store devoted to them on Thursday. The shop, in a mall near Washington, D.C., sells 850 different Peeps products, including plush toys, china and even a hand-blown glass Peep.
"Our fans have asked us for years, 'What about a store?'" said Kathy Bassininski, who oversaw the creation of Peeps & Company stores for Just Born, based in Bethlehem, Pa.
