Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (4/7/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – a special PEEPS edition – for this Friday, April 7th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. About five and a half million Peeps are made every day.  And in one year, enough Peeps are made to circle the globe twice.
  2. It used to take 27 hours to make a Peep.  Back in 1953, each chick was handmade with a pastry tube.  But the process was eventually automated, and now it takes just six minutes to make a Peep.
  3. Yellow chicks are the original, and still the favorite.  Yellow bunnies are the second most popular color and shape combination.  Pink is the second best-selling color.
  4. The vast majority of Peeps are consumed around Easter.  About 2 billion Peeps are produced each year and 1.5 billion of them are eaten during the spring.
  5. The town where they’re made does a New Year’s Eve Peep drop.  The Peeps factory is in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  And on New Year’s Eve, they drop a giant 400-pound Peep chick at midnight instead of a ball.

Be sure to share these 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ with your family, friends & coworkers at some point today!
