Peeps Oreos Are Turning Everything Bright Pink
All we needed was milk, so I was a little confused as to why my husband was taking a million years at the grocery store. Silly me, I should have known by the amount of time he was gone that Jay was picking up more than just milk.
I always know when Jay tells me not to peek as he’s unloading the groceries that he’s bought something that he wouldn’t have bought if I were at the store with him, which is exactly what he did yesterday.
Last week, Jay and I were talking about the new Peeps Oreos and how we’d read reports from people who’d eaten them that the cookies weren’t just staining their mouth pink, but that the cookies were also turning their poo the same color.

We’re not big cookie eaters or Peeps eaters for that matter, so when Jay pulled a package of bright pink Peeps Oreos from behind his back, I knew that he wanted to see if the reports were true. But here’s the thing- Jay didn’t want to eat them because he doesn’t like Peeps and I didn’t want to eat them because I’m not a Peeps fan either.
And then we looked down and standing at our knee caps, begging for a cookie, was our two-year-old son.
Now, hold up- before you get bent out of shape thinking that we’d be ignorant enough to feed an entire package of cookies to our toddler, no. Just no. We gave John ONE cookie and he loved it so much that he decided to wear it and share it with our kitchen. Everything John touched turned pink. The handle of the refrigerator, the cabinets, the dishwasher- all pink.
People weren’t joking when they said that Peeps Oreos have a lasting color. I found myself scrubbing John’s clothes with a stain stick in the bathroom sink for over 30 minutes last night while my husband attacked the kitchen with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser because it’s the only thing that would scrub away the bright pink.
John’s poo didn’t turn pink, but it did smell like he’d eaten a box of Fruity Pebbles, which is probably the best thing to come out of this whole experience.
If you want to try the Peeps Oreos for yourself, you should be able to find them on the shelves of your grocery store at least until Easter. But don’t say you weren’t warned- especially if you decide to share with a toddler.
