Pillsbury is adding another iteration for you to relive that magic for anyone with warm memories of waking up and downing a bowl of Lucky Charms breakfast cereal before school.

The brand has released a limited-edition Lucky Charms Sugar Cookie Dough with Marshmallow Bits in stores.

This exclusive batch of cookie dough is ready to bake into some warm sugar cookies that taste like the iconic breakfast cereal — down to the little colorful marshmallow pieces.

You can also safely eat the cookie dough raw if you’re feeling it at the moment.

Customers can find the new Lucky Charms Sugar Cookie Dough with Marshmallow Bits in grocery retailers nationwide now. It’ll likely be around until Easter.

HipDot x PEEPS is the Make Up Collab No One Expected This Season

Last fall, cosmetics brand HipDot had an unexpected partnership with Tapatio Hot Sauce to launch a line of products no one imagined would have happened. 

Now, HipDot is at it again with another tasty brand: PEEPS.

Yep, those colorful marshmallow-filled birds will now be a part of an exclusive cosmetic line similar to last year’s Tapatio launch. 

Items available for this launch include PEEPS Eyeshadow Palette, PEEPS Sponge Set, and a combination of the eyeshadow and sponge set. There will also be a few other surprise items dropping sometime later this month. 

Aside from Candy Corn, I can’t think of another confection that’s as polarizing as PEEPS. Either you love them, or you hate them. 

Still, this collection’s vibrant palettes derived from the PEEPS aesthetic seem like a perfect fit ahead of the Easter season. 

You can find the collection at HipDot.com and Ulta.com starting March 2.

PEEPS Slurpees & PEEPS Lattes Are Now At 7-Eleven

Spring is here and we’re officially in Peeps season, folks. Love them or hate them, with the advent of Spring comes such a hype for these little animal-shaped marshmallows that continues to polarize both classrooms and offices alike. Almost as much as candy corn. Almost.

Leaning into the spirit of Peeps, 7-Eleven just released two new beverage options, both inspired by the prolific, ear-forward marshmallow treat.

The first is a Peeps-flavored Slurpee, which the brand has been teasing since February. This marks the first-ever marshmallow-flavored Slurpee from 7-Eleven (what were they waiting for??). Second, Peeps takes the form of a Peeps Latte that’s offered in the hot beverage dispensing machines.

Those looking for a sweet kick of marshmallow should be sure to give these drinks a taste!

Peeps lovers, you can check out these flavors at your local 7-Eleven throughout the month of April. You can also have them delivered for free through 7Now, 7-Eleven’s delivery service, with the promo code FREE4U.

This Marshmallow Factory Wonderland Has A Secret Menu Marshmallow Pancake Stack

When I was a kid, my favorite segment of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood was where he would take us inside factories and show us how different foods were made. I could sit in my grandparents’ living room for hours watching how foods like macaroni and fortune cookies were created in bulk.

Working around food all these years later, I’ve had the opportunity to go behind the scenes of many factories and see how different dishes and items come into existence. One of the most memorable experiences in that vein was from Plush Puffs, an artisanal marshmallow shop located in Burbank, CA.

We were treated to essentially an intimate How Stuff Is Made segment from our childhood, the only difference being that we actually got to try marshmallows fresh from the line. Phenomenal, really.

The confection store offers a variety of desserts, beverages, and customizable s’mores bowls that you can build yourself by however your sweet tooth deems fit. It truly was a marshmallow wonderland, with a vast selection of handcrafted marshmallows boasting over a dozen flavors.

Plush Puffs also features a secret menu item that layers golden, fluffy pancakes with toasted, pillowy maple bacon marshmallows. The result is a veritable lasagna of texture and smokiness, drenched in maple syrup.

For breakfast lovers with an affinity for marshmallow and bacon, this was a breakthrough in morning innovation. Make sure to order some hot cocoa when you visit, the pairing of hot chocolate and marshmallows are as iconic as peanut butter and jelly.

These Alcohol-Infused Marshmallows Will Take Your S’Mores To New Levels

As the seasons start to change, you might be planning a camping trip — perhaps to see the fall foliage. Now a key part of any campout is s’mores, right? Well, The Naked Marshmallow Co. are now giving your fave fireside treat a boozy, sweet twist.

The British-based brand makes marshmallows in three spirit-inspired yet all-natural flavors: Espresso Martini, Elderflower & London Gin, and Raspberry & Prosecco.

Sadly, you can’t get your hands on these at stateside retailers yet. However, their website has an web store, so that should solve all your boozy marshmallow desires.

Watch This Mad Scientist Perform Explosive Experiments With Peeps

Easter is only a few days off and we’re swept away with how many Peeps we’ve seen in the last couple weeks.

If you’re looking for something to do with all those marshmallow snacks, other than eat them, turn to Grant Thompson (AKA The King of Random).

Peeps variations included in this experiment were the Fruit Punch and Pink flavors, with a few other random candies he had lying around thrown in for good measure. Hey, go big or go home right?

The YouTuber and mad scientist got a hold of some potassium chlorate and decided to have a little Easter fun. He performs a few different experiments to see how the holiday marshmallow snack faired when exposed to molten potassium chlorate. The solid, crystalline, substance had to be melt down with a blow torch until it was a liquid state before it could be added to the Peeps.

Check out the video to see for yourself the explosive results from the sweet little experiment. And per the usual for zany experiments like this, do not try this at home.

The Internet Is Furious Over This Peeps Pizza

Easter is only a couple weeks away and we’re seeing a lot more Peeps pop up the closer we get. While some Peeps-inspired innovations can be pretty delicious, others have us second-guessing the concept of food fusion.

Like this Peeps Pizza.

A recent tweet from @AustinOnSocial showed the world that maybe not everything should be thrown onto a pizza, BroBible reported. In fact, his tweet was even bold enough to state this was better than pineapple pizza. While the topic of pineapples on pizza isn’t something we’d like to get into, it’s definitely more appetizing than this monstrosity.

This ‘Peepza’ drew the full ire of Twitter. Like with the rest of the Internet, users of the social media platform were not afraid to voice their opinions and concerns regarding this cheesy monster of Frankenstein.

While not his own creation, Austin is still sticking with his Peepy guns. We can respect that.

So how do you feel about a pizza that’s topped with melted Peeps?
