I never liked Peeps anyway... I take that back, you roast one of those things for a smores... Oh yeah!  Otherwise they are worthless to me. AND!!! Apparently, worthless to you as well!

According to a new survey, Peeps have plummeted in popularity over the past few years in the face of better Easter candy options.

When it comes to the candy we're looking forward to this year,

54% of us say Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs
48% chocolate bunnies
48% jelly beans
45% Hershey's chocolate eggs
34% Peeps.

Usually, Peeps is right up around 45%, so that's a major loss for the company.

Peeps tried to spin it by saying, quote, "Peeps continues to be the number one non-chocolate brand at Easter."  But, that's not a trueststement. The survey showed that people preferred jelly beans over Peeps.
