Washington Post’s “Peeps Show”

The Pope reigns in the world of Peeps, too.

This year’s grand prize winner of the Washington Post’s seventh annual Peeps Show was a submission called “Peeps Mourn Their Peeps: Twinkie, Rest in Peeps,” by Lani Hoza and Leslie Brown.

The diorama featured a scene in which the Peep Pope returns from his retirement to conduct the funeral for Twinkie.

Every year, the Post urges readers to hone their artistic skills to create a diorama made with America’s favorite Easter treat.

Out of this year’s 650 entries, five finalists were chosen. One memorable finalist was “Peep’s Chili Bowl,” a reproduction of the District’s very own Ben’s Chili Bowl restaurant created by the staff of the Corporation for Enterprise Development. 

Check out more of the finalists’ work here.
