Peep State: Bakery uses peeps to rival PSU gameday

Penn State Peep Team

There’s no denying it: Penn State fans love their football team. A local bakery takes the love affair to another level. With spring here and Easter just around the corner, Flour Box Bakery, located in Bellefonte, Pa., decorated 112 peeps to best resemble gameday at Beaver Stadium – err, Bunny Stadium, as they call it. The peeps include Coach Bill O’Peep, players decked out in simple uniforms, fans and band members. The best part: the stadium is made entirely out of cookie. Now, that’s a tasty treat. See all 12 peep pictures.

There’s another very cool touch to this masterpiece, and it’s what the bakery calls “an angel from heaven watching over his team,” seated in the crowd. He sure resembles the late Joe Paterno, huh? See for yourself:

Joe Paterno Peeps should be sold in stores! He is the greatest head coach and one of the greatest people in the history of college football.

Penn State is JoePa….w/o him Penn State would not be well known. The board of trustees can not control the people and the people will have JoePa live on forever…….RIP JoePa
