Peeps Coffee Creamer Is Here And It’s Exactly What Your Morning Needs

We may technically be just a few weeks into winter, but I am going to go ahead and say spring has officially sprung. Why, you may ask? Because International Delight just dropped a new coffee creamer featuring the springiest candy out there: PEEPS!

Peeps, the perennial Easter stocking stuffer you likely either love or despise, can now be seen plastered over the cutest coffee creamer bottle I’ve ever laid eyes on. It has a yellow cap, obviously, with a whole bunch of pastel-colored Peeps around the bottle.

And since winter is cold and hot coffee deserves to be spruced up with a marshmallow creamer, the product is hitting shelves this week. Yes! In January! That’s a full three months before Peeps usually start to make an appearance on the ends of grocery and convenience store shelves with all the other Easter display candies.

In case you forgot, International Delight is the same brand that brought us the Oreo coffee creamer last summer, and they’ve got more than 20 different kinds of creamer out, from Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel to White Chocolate Raspberry to the slightly tamer French Vanilla. You can find them all at your local grocery store now.
