Grand Prize Peep Winners

I See What You Mean

We are excited to announce the grand prize winners of the 2015 Peep Contest! This year the theme was "a famous painting or sculpture."

Congratulations to our "all ages" winner, the Park Hill Teen Advisory Board! They created Denver's big blue bear sculpture, I See What You Mean, with blue Peeps. We loved their creativity and shout-out to Denver!

The "adult" grand prize winner was submitted by a customer at Ross-Cherry Creek who created Peeps Playing Poker. It is an intricate masterpiece with amazing detail.

How to Eat

A wise woman once said "Your body hears everything your mind says." That woman was Naomi Judd. Okay, I don't know how wise she is, but I sure connected with that quote.
