Here’s a peek inside an awesome and, as far as we’re concerned, magical place that we’ve always wanted to visit, the marshmallow Peep factory! Whether you prefer them fresh or stale, Easter just wouldn’t be the same without them. Actually, these days, pretty much any holiday would be lackluster without a few sugary peeps to hand.

The New York Times recently went inside the Pennsylvania-based, family-owned Just Born factory and shot some great images of how their Peeps marshmallow candies are made. The full set of images can be found at The New York Times.

It takes six minutes to make a Peep. Ingredients are mixed, air is injected and the emerging Peep is blasted with a sugar shower and decorated with two tiny eyes made of edible wax.
