WARMINSTER, PA - APRIL 18: Pink and yellow Marshmallow Peeps are seen April 18, 2003 in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Just Born, the manufacturer of Marshmallow Peeps, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Marshmallow Peeps, and now produces more than one billion individual Peeps per year. Last Easter, more than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps and Bunnies were consumed by men, women, and children throughout the United States. Strange things people like to do with Marshmallow Peeps: eat them stale, microwave them, freeze them, roast them and use them as a pizza topping. Marshmallow Peeps and Bunnies come in five colors.

Woahhhh!! Things have officially gotten crazy just in time for Easter…

You may have heard PEEPS and Pepsi have teamed up for a new PEPSI x PEEPS Marshmallow cola, but it turns out that’s not the only Peeps-flavored beverage that will be available this season.

Convenience chain 7-Eleven has teamed with PEEPS to offer customers Peeps-flavored lattes. They will, of course, be marshmallow flavored, and are described as a “rich, sweet coffee treat.”

Folks who are interested may want to quickly head to their local 7-Eleven, because the drink will only be available for a limited time, while supplies last.

  • Meanwhile, as for that PEPSI X PEEPS drink, the Internet isn’t really sure what to think about it, with many people not down with the idea at all.
    • “Cant think of a more horrible combination!,” one person tweeted, “Well done you guys — Pineapple on Pizza take a back seat – we have a winner – channeling my inner 3 year old – ewww! #avtweeps Is this an April fools thing?”
    • Another person who wasn’t for the drink shared, “I don’t like Pepsi and I don’t like Peeps. Hard pass,” while even Dan Rather commented, “Some things are so wrong.”
    • Although it does seem to have at least one taker, with another person sharing, “You bet your buttons I’ll be trying the Peeps Pepsi.”
  • Some are simply surprised by the misstep of the drink’s name.
    • As one person pointed out, “A seasonal marshmallow treat and the second best soda brand combine and they don’t call the flavor Peepsi? Y’all messed up.”
