Nothing says Easter like marshmallow Peeps! I can't be the only one who finds it irresistible to squeeze the package of cute little treats when I see them in the grocery store this time of year.

In 1953, candy maker Sam Born, and his company Just Born, took over production of Peeps. But before then, the candies were all handmade — it took 30 hours just to make one chick! Today, the Peeps factory operates 24 hours a day, 5 days per week and produces more than 2 billion Peeps per year — that's enough to circle the earth twice!
