New Batesville Urn? | FFFW 131
On April 7th, 1827, the first-ever match was sold. That’s wild. I thought matches had existed for like thousands of years! I guess not. So all those westerns where they just whip out a match to light a smoke or start a campfire- they’re flexing. Having matches in the 1800s was like having an iPhone in 2007. So, there you go- that’s a fun fact to start your day.

Batesville Presents- The Peep Urn
Batesville, the leading manufacturer of caskets, urns, and keepsakes, has partnered with Peeps, the beloved Easter candy brand, to release their latest product: the Easter Urn. This collaboration marks Peeps’ latest venture into new product categories, following recent releases of milk, coke, cereal, and even pre-workout.
The Easter Urn is a unique and festive way for families to commemorate the passing of a loved one during the Easter season. This new urn is available in multiple sizes and can be customized with a personal message or the name of the deceased.
“We’re excited to partner with Peeps and offer families a new way to celebrate the life of their loved ones,” said Chris Trainor, Batesville’s CEO. “The Easter Urn is a beautiful and meaningful tribute that will bring comfort and joy to families during a difficult time.”
“Peeps is an annual seasonal phenomenon. Every year we take over everything- so why not take over deathcare? It’s really the last thing we needed to have our little chick in every nook and cranny of the American experience,” said Peeps CMO (in a THICK New York accent).
The Easter Urn is just one of Peeps’ many new products, and the company is thrilled to enter the funeral space with this innovative collaboration. “We know that losing a loved one can be incredibly difficult, and we hope that the Easter Urn brings a little bit of happiness and comfort to families during this challenging time,” said a spokesperson for Peeps.
The Easter Urn is available for purchase now, just in time for the Easter season. Funeral directors interested in carrying this unique product can contact their local Batesville representative for more information.
