The New Peeps Oreos Are Dyeing People’s Mouths Pink (Photos)

Do ya’ll remember when we told you that new Peeps Oreos were coming out just in time to get into the Easter spirit?
Well, the time has come, folks — Peeps Oreos are officially on American Walmart shelves and ready to be purchased and consumed.
Just one caveat, though … apparently, they’re turning everybody’s mouths hot pink.
This news is cracking us up for real!
According to food blogger Junk Food Guy’s review, the new pink Peeps filling in the Oreos is actually almost the exact same filling that is used in the Marshmallow Crispy Oreos, except instead of crisps the filling is filled with sugar crystals to replicate the authentic Peep treat, and the filling has been dyed an extremely potent and very bright hot pink color.
So, while the taste is one that die-hard Oreos fans probably recognize — marshmallowy goodnes — the dye in the Oreo filling leaves consumers with not a bad taste, but a persistent hue in their mouths.
“Dude, the creme turned my saliva bright pink!” Junk Food Guy wrote. “BRIGHT PINK! This is sort of horrifying — this is the type of food dye where an hour later, when I went to brush my teeth, IT TURNED MY TOOTHBRUSH PINK. What the heck. WHAT THE HECK.”
For about $3, you can head down to your local Walmart and pick up a batch of these bright pink sugar-bombs, probably in the seasonal or the cookie aisle, and try the Oreos out for yourselves.
