The peeps behind Peeps have a history of keeping their marshmallowy secrets all to themselves. That’s about to change.
Just Born, the mother company of Peeps, is opening its Pennsylvania factory doors for one lucky person (and a few friends). Will it be you?
Soooo… Why Just One Person?
We’re guessing they don’t want us knowing too much. Just Born, the organization that makes our fluffy friends, is working with United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley to allow one guest into the factory. Matt Pye, the senior vice president of sales and marketing for Just Born, says, “We couldn’t think of a better reason to open our doors for the first time ever than by teaming up with our local United Way to help give back to the community that Peeps calls home.”
Does this mean doors will stay open? We’re not sure—but we really hope so!
How Do I Win the Tour?
Entering to win the Peeps factor tour is actually pretty easy. Simply donate a minimum of $5 to United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley. The donations go to local schools, so even if you don’t win, you can help the Lehigh community. We think that’s pretty cool!
To donate, you can either text “peepsunited” to 40403 or visit this page to donate online. You can enter as many times as you like, as long as you donate $5 each time. Donations will need to be made by April 8, so be quick!
What Are the Prizes?
The factory tour will be the grand prize, but United Way and Just Born have some other goods for you. If, on April 12, you’re lucky enough to be notified as the winner, your name will be officially announced during United Way’s Day of Caring on April 18. You’ll get a trip for four to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (home of the Peeps factory), a $250 shopping spree at the Peeps & Company store, a hotel stay and airfare!
Get all your friends to play because if one of you wins, you can invite the others to accompany you on the tour. So start donating!
