Peeps In Famous Places: A Trip Around The World With Sugary Friends (SLIDESHOW)

Whether you enjoy eating them or not, you cannot deny that peeps hold a special place in the hearts of Americans. These odd yet adorable Easter treats have long invaded our Web videos, our newspapers, and our drug stores. Now they've decided to spread out and conquer the rest of the world by swarming famous (and not so famous) landmarks.

UPDATE: The photos are from the "Peeps in Places" photo challenge by "National Geographic." They've extended the contest deadline through Monday, April 13, so get your submissions in and make the world a better place for peeps!
