Hi I ate a bunch of Oreos earlier today and now I'm having diarrhea that is black and green. I was wondering if the Oreos would cause the change in color or if something else is wrong?

In brief: Oreo

cookies should NOT color your stools!! "black stools" need to be investigated since may reflect GI bleeding EG: Bleeding in the CECUM may cause blackish stools ("old blood") In short, get it checked out!

BTW "Green stools may be due to food color eg: green vegetables and is generally normal.
