I don't know about ya'll, but I would much rather pay more for something made in the USA than to buy something that's tainted from China!!!!!!!!!!!!

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Marshmallow Peeps have been on an overseas trip.

For the first time ever, the Just Born company of Pennsylvania is outsourcing its treats to China.

The Bethlehem-based company says this marks its first foray into outsourcing in its 84-year history. The company made the move because its local plant couldn't individually wrap the special "Spooky Friends" Halloween treats. It says a factory in China meets its quality standards.

Just Born made the decision to test outsourcing last year, before the Chinese products scandals hit. The candy maker says its popular Peeps and most of its other offerings will continue to be made in Pennsylvania.
