Without a Peep

August 11, 2017, Bloomington, MN –


In early July, five years after opening, Just Born Candy Company’s Peep store in the Mall of America closed up shop.  Candy Universe now presides over the first-floor location.

Details are unclear and, as of this reporting, no official account of the store closing has been found. However, unidentified mall workers believe it was a result of high rent and not enough revenue.

This is a devastating blow for Peep fans visiting the Mall of America, and so soon after a worker strike in the fall of 2016 nearly resulted in a national shortage of the fluffy convection at Easter.

Peeps are still available for purchase online, thru select retailers, and in Just Born’s other retail stores.
