Peeps are most commonly associated with springtime, but the new Peeps fall flavors bring in the changing leaves and brisk afternoons of autumn. Released ahead of Labor Day, the Peeps fall flavors reference typical autumnal tastes and activities.
There are four new flavors being released this season: candy corn, caramel apple, maple brown sugar, and, of course, pumpkin spice latte. The former three make reference to apple-picking, the first maple syrup harvests, and fall fairs, while the latter is yet another example of pumpkin spice's dominance as a flavor for the month's following summer. Ahead of Halloween, Peeps has also released 'Spooky Cats,' which are dark, cat-shaped versions of the treat.
All four of the Peeps fall flavors are dipped in fudge; pumpkin spice latte, candy corn, and maple brown sugar have white fudge, while caramel apple is coated in salted caramel fudge.
