Just Born, Peeps parent company, is conducting a survey on the Peepsonality of its fans to celebrate the anniversary. With 642 diorama entries, we think its pretty safe to say that Washingtonians’ Peepsonalities are artistic, with a side of political snark.
So in honor of our favorite crafty candy, here are a few of our best dioramas of years past. Be sure to visit washingtonpost.com/peeps on March 27 for the unveiling of this year’s winners.
