Ira 'Bob' Born, also known as the 'Father of Peeps', has died at the age of 98. The 'evil' Willy Wonka first introduced Peeps Marshmallows to the world in 1953. Ever since then, its been an unrelenting storm of new flavors, shapes, and holiday themes.

Bob basically said 'what if we took a delicious treat like marshmallows and added sandpaper to them?' The result was Peeps.

I said it, and I meant it. There's absolutely no reason why we need Peeps for each and every holiday. It used to be just Easter that we had to worry about. But no, Peeps has now taken over multiple holidays with their absurd candy.

No thank you.

Smut. Pure smut. As an American I'm offended.

There is so much ammunition against Bob and his candy empire, that it's almost too easy at this point. And not to speak ill of the dead, but come on man. This is the legacy you're going to leave behind?

Halloween Peeps ASMR? Honestly, where does it end with you, people? The Pennsylvania native passed away peacefully, but his spirit will haunt us as long as Peeps Marshmallows still exist.
