When Oreo debuted its Peeps flavor recently, people had mild complaints about the cookie turning their tongues and saliva pink.
Whatever. Slurpees do that all that time and it’s not a big deal.
There are new complaints about the Oreo, though, as people are now saying it’s turning their poop as pink as Jigglypuff’s belly.

The pink cream inside the Oreo contains a dye called FD&C Red No. 3, and apparently doesn’t break down during digestion according to Live Science. That could be the main reason why it comes out the backdoor looking like Kirby.

While it’s a strange side effect, at least no one’s getting sick. Still, get your shit together, Oreo.
