Circus peanuts are American peanut-shaped marshmallow candy. They date to the 19th century, when they were one of a large variety of unwrapped “penny candy” sold in such retail outlets as five-and-dime stores.



Marshmallow Circus Peanuts were invented in the 1800s and have been produced by many confectionery manufacturers over the years. The first Spangler Candy Circus Peanut recipe was developed on March 12, 1941. During the war, Circus Peanut Slurry was sold in jars as a sugar replacement since sugar was rationed.

Circus Peanuts were originally introduced as Spring candy items in 5-cent and 10-cent variety stores. In the late 1940s, polyethylene film was developed and helped make it possible to offer Circus Peanuts on a year-round basis.
