Easter is just a couple of days away and that means we are in the thick of Peeps season. The marshmallow treat has become a holiday staple while findings its way into all sorts of products. Things with Peeps have become so crazy, Jimmy Kimmel was tablet o turn it into a game.

While Peeps may not be everyone’s favorite, the candy still shows up front and center on nearly every candy display. Easter baskets are sure to be filled with different flavored chick and bunny marshmallows regardless of whether or not anyone actually eats them.

And it’s not just candy Peeps that could be your basket this year. There are dozens of products infused with the treat or inspired by the flavor.

So to help figure out fact from fiction, Jimmy Kimmel put together a brand new game. Check out the video below and play along to see if Peeps toothpaste, Pringles, and more are actually real.

Jimmy Kimmel Live highlights the weird ways Peeps have expanded this year

How did you do? Were you able to tell what was a real Peep product and what was a fake cooked up by Jimmy Kimmel and the Jimmy Kimmel Live! writers?

On the real side we have hand sanitizer, milk, Pepsi, and Crocs. The fakes? Pringles, yogurt, toothpaste, Twinkies, and White Claw.

The biggest surprises had to be the hand sanitizer and the Crocs. They seemed like perfect gags for Kimmel to slip in considering everyone is staying home and paying extra attention to hand hygiene.

Don’t be shocked if we see Peeps-flavored Pringles or Twinkies on the shelf by next Easter. Kimmel may have been joking but it’s not hard to imagine someone thinking he came up with a good idea.
