Peeps and Oreos fans were ecstatic of a marriage made in heaven, Peeps Oreo cookies hit store shelves last month.  But there's appears to be a side effect of consuming these cookies.  Food fans have been sharing pictures of bright pink-colored salvia, tongues and even poop! While the color change is only temporary, some people are claiming it last for a few days; depending on how many cookies you eat. A spokesperson for Oreos said the pinkness is due to red food coloring 3, a FDA-approved bright pink food coloring and although safe to eat, it can cause discoloration.
