In time for the holidays, Peeps- the love ‘em or hate ‘em marshmallow holiday confection piece d’ resistance , has opened it’s first concept store in Oxon Hill, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. Now the center of national power can also be a sugary mecca for fans of all ages to get Peep-related products, and remember all the wonderful sugar highs of childhood.

According to The Washington Post, the store will carry more than just the standard birds and bunnies, but will highlight the recent fascination over  Peep’s as cultural phenomenon, and an intrinsic part of the cultural zeitgeist.

According to The Washington Post:

Milena DeLuca, a spokeswoman for Peeps parent company Just Born, said the store will sell a full complement of Peeps paraphernalia: T-shirts with Peeps dressed up as the Village People, plush Peeps in the traditional chick and bunny shapes, Peeps pillows, pens and key chains, and even Peeps china. (Yes, it not only exists, but some is even made by Lenox.)
