NEW YORK – Oreo’s newest flavor combines “Peeps” — yes that Easter treat — with the classic cookie.

The latest flavor of Oreos is decidedly Easter inspired. For those who aren’t familiar with the nearly neon treat, Peeps are marshmallows covered in colored sugar.

The limited edition of the Peeps-flavored Oreos are producing some less than delicious side effects, FOX 31 reported. Consumers who have tasted the cookie – which has a bright pink filling – are reporting the colored cream is changing the hue of their tongue, mouth and even feces to a vivid shade of pink.

Fans of the treat are taking to Twitter to share the surprising reaction.

Coincidentally, Monday happens to be National Oreo Cookie Day, at least that’s according to the Oreo Cookie Twitter account.
