For fans of those colorful, sugary marshmallow chicks — blue raspberry is the latest flavor creation.

Sold exclusively at Walmart, blue raspberry was the flavor customers voted on during a contest last year.

Peeps have become an Easter favorite since their introduction to our taste buds in the early 50s.

While the original peep chicks were yellow, they now come in a variety of flavors and colors including sour watermelon and bubble gum to name a few.

Each day approximately five million peeps are hatched at the just born company.

whether your favorite is hot pink, neon yellow or electric blue, these little chicks are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
