A Peeps Adventure


Adair Andre

The Peeps store at the Mall of America is located near Nickelodeon Universe.

Sup Peeps.

Oh Peeps: you either love them or you hate them. Over the past few years they have become a large part of American culture, especially around the Easter holiday. They have become so popular in fact that there is a Peeps & Company store! Us Minnesotans are the luckiest people in the USA because we have a Peeps store right here in our home state. In fact it is not so far from Edina, just about 15 minutes away in the infamous Mall of America.

I did some investigative journalism and visited this Peeps Store to see what they could possibly sell. Spoiler alert: they sell A LOT of Peeps (and Mike & Ikes and Hot Tamales, which are also part of their brand). They have every possible flavor of peeps you could imagine, from watermelon to bubblegum. They also have many peeps brand items that you can indulge in. There are peeps smelling candles, peeps hats, peeps keychains, peeps plushes, and much much more. I encourage every person in the world to visit the Peeps & Company store because it is truly a life changing experience.

Peeps Out.
