As Le Creuset gears up for St. Patrick’s Day with a limited-edition clover-shaped Dutch oven, Oreos is skipping ahead even further, prepping for Easter with the return of its now infamous Peeps Oreos.
That’s right! The marshmallow flavored treat the company introduced in spring of last year are back for a second run — but with a twist.
If you noticed that these cookies look a *little * different than last year’s model, you’re definitely not wrong: Gone is the fuchsia, Red 3 filling that had fans experiencing a most unexpected side effect after consumption — most notably, turning people’s fecal matter bright pink (yes, really!).
Instead, they’re playing it safe with a pretty, lilac-hued version of the filling, which, according to Instagram account @candyhunting, is also less “bitter” tasting.
Also missing from this year’s variety are the golden vanilla wafers that made up the cookie’s exterior, replaced instead by the brand’s signature chocolate cookie toppers.
From the sounds of the tweets that are coming in, these sound like a SERIOUS upgrade.
Excuse us while we make a cookie run!
