The start of spring signals the beginning of Peeps season. Celebrate the warmer weather with some of the festive candy brand’s wackier flavors. 

1. “DELIGHT” FLAVORS

These special Peeps come in a variety of flavors including blueberry, lemon, raspberry, strawberry, and vanilla. They’re all partially dipped in crème fudge (except for lemon, which gets lemon fudge). There are also two new delight flavors: orange and lime. You can pick up a pack at Target or on Amazon

2. FRUIT PUNCH

If you’re ready for summer already, you can get a 10-pack of bright red, fruit punch-flavored Peeps. The brand-new flavor can be found at Kroger stores or online.

3. BLUE RASPBERRY 

You might question how the often sour blue raspberry flavor would complement the super-sweetness of marshmallow, but Peeps pulls it off. The bright blue birds can be found at Walmart or online.

4. COTTON CANDY

Another new flavor is the ambitious cotton candy. Perfect for carnival lovers with a sweet tooth, these light pink Peeps come with little flecks of blue sugar. You can pick up a pack at Walgreens or online.

5. SOUR WATERMELON

Here is another tart flavor of Peep that is a little more controversial. Most people will either love or hate these boldly flavored birds. They have green sugar outsides and pink marshmallow insides to imitate a real watermelon. You can find them at most stores or on Amazon

6. BUBBLE GUM 

If you hate that you can’t (or at least, shouldn’t) swallow bubble gum, then maybe these Peeps are for you. The light pink marshmallows are sold exclusively at Walgreens, but you can also find them online

7. PARTY CAKE 

Got a party coming up? Pick up a 10-pack of these festive light-blue Peeps. They even come with colorful sprinkles for added fun. 

8. RED VELVET 

Red velvet isn’t just for cupcakes and waffles. The decadent flavor was part of a Christmas-themed series, which also included hot cocoa, candy cane, and sugar cookie. Since it’s past the season, you can’t get them in stores, but luckily Amazon has got you covered.

9. SUGAR PLUM 

Here’s another relic from winter: Sugar plum delight Peeps. They are a lovely shade of purple and come partially dipped in white fudge. You can snag some out-of-season goodness right here

10. CARAMEL APPLE

If you’re not crazy about winter flavors, there are also autumn options. The caramel apple is a great place to start—with apple flavored Peeps that are dipped in caramel fudge. For more fall flavors, also check out candy corn and pumpkin spice

11. SWEET LEMONADE 

Kick back and enjoy a nice tart pack of lemonade-flavored Peeps—the sweet-sour candy is white with little yellow crystals. Purchasing a pack will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand.

12. MYSTERY FLAVOR 

Feeling indecisive? Let the Peep pick the flavor for you. This year, there are three different boxes to choose from, all sold at Walmart. Try all three and then send your guesses to Peeps Brand with the hashtag #mysterypeeps.

BONUS: PEEP MILK 

Now you can enjoy the sweet taste of Peeps in milk form. The sugary drink was unveiled last year with an enthusiastic response, so this year the creator (Prairie Farms Dairy) is giving it a national rollout. You can enjoy flavors like strawberry crème, egg nog, and orange crème.
