Last week, we reported on PEPSI x PEEPS®, a controversial new cola collab that, per the press release, “combines the crisp, refreshing taste of PEPSI cola with the pillowy-soft and sweet PEEPS® Marshmallow flavor consumers love.” But what if you want to start your day with Peeps? And what if you prefer those Peeps... warm? 7-Eleven has the beverage for you, you fun-loving little weirdo. According to a press release, in addition to 7-Eleven’s usual hazelnut, vanilla, caramel, and orange mocha flavors, the store is adding another limited-edition latte flavor: Peeps Marshmallow.

Out of all of the Peeps innovations we’ve seen this year (seriously, what’s going on over there?), a Peeps latte might be the most palatable. Creamy marshmallow mixed into a gas station latte actually sounds pretty good, depending on the ferocity of your sweet tooth. The brand is also marketing the drink to established Peeps fans. 7-Eleven Vice President of Proprietary Beverages Jawad Bisbis writes: “We are always looking for new and unexpected flavors for all of our proprietary beverages—hot, cold and frozen. I hope loyal PEEPS enthusiasts will come give our limited-edition latte a try.”

If you’d like to turbo-charge your day with the power of the Peep, the latte flavor is available for a limited time—caffeinated or decaf—at participating locations. And if you’re looking for other Easter treats, the chain will debut a few new springy delights like giant frosted shortbread cookies. The Takeout assumes no liability for what happens after you drink the Peeps latte. (Sugar high-induced levitation, sugar crash-induced traffic accidents, etc.)

I mean...it’s just sugar. People add sugar to coffee all the time. This one does make a lot of sense.

The only downside might be if the bunny peep pops up to the top, face up and stares at you judgingly while it melts away into the dark deep...
