Chris Smith in sales at Westside VW has craved marshmallow Peep candy since she was a girl, and after two Peep decorated 2012 VW Beetles showed up at the store, she gave in.
While pregnant with her first daughter, Smith was caught by her husband eating Peeps in her room with the door closed. After asking if she was going to put them back in the freezer, he would get mad and say, “Are you going to eat that whole box?” Yes, she said.
“My parents still keep one box of peeps in the freezer,” she said. “I’m rationed to one row when I come by.”
The Peep cars were sold by Westside, and an outside company applied product decals. Smith was happy to pose with them, even donning a matching yellow shirt.
In car sales from 2000 to 2005, Smith took an extended hiatus to practice law. She happily returned to car sales in 2011.
