Pumpkin Spice Peeps Are HAPPENING

Usually, Pumpkin Spice madness starts (still ridiculously early) around the end of August. But, it's been August for less than a week and already we're talking about the fall flavor that everyone just can't seem to get enough of. This year, the first product to cause an online frenzy is none other than Pumpkin Spice Peeps. That's right: The company behind sugary Easter bunnies and chicks is bringing us neon orange, autumn-flavored marshmallow chicks. Why?

The new flavor is part of a trio that also features Caramel Apple and Candy Corn Peeps. The bottoms of all three chick flavors will also be dipped in "white fudge" (we have no idea what that means, either). It seems Peeps & Company wants customers to get even more sweetness in every single mouthful of sugar.

Pumpkin Spice Peeps will be available beginning August 31 at Target or from the Peeps online store.

While we're slightly terrified of these upcoming flavors, we have to admit that the opportunity to put a pumpkin-spice-flavored marshmallow Peep on top of our next PSL, hot-chocolate-style, is going to be hard to pass up.
