In the Spring of 1917, confection company, LG Slugworth Co. had a real problem on its hands. They had made far too much raw marshmallow. Fortunately, James Peeporato suggested that Slugworth use the extra marshmallow to make some kind of candy for the Easter holiday. Larry Slugworth loved the idea. After the following shapes were all rejected:

  • Cross

  • Ice Cream Cone

  • Jesus

  • Lamb

  • Spectacles

The bunny and baby chick were approved...thankfully.
