Robin Roberts picked up some unexpected side-effects -- good and bad -- when she got a life-saving bone marrow transplant 2 years ago ... and says it's all her sister's fault. 

Robin's sis Sally-Ann donated the bone marrow to help Robin treat a rare blood disorder.

The transplant gave Robin a fresh infusion of stem cells ... but Wednesday in NYC -- she told us she also inherited some of her sister's physical traits.

Watch Robin's explanation -- doesn't sound like she's too upset about the trade-off ... as long as she's not around chocolate.

"After the stem cell research???" I think she only turned around to figure out what the hell the guy was talking about.

I know a kidney recipient who NEVER EVER drank alcohol and after her kidney transplant was craving beer. She found out later that the donar kidney came from a 21 year old college man.

Man, that's a bad pic. She's quite beautiful, but she looks like one of those California Raisins from the commercial years ago (I think).

Is that a turd on her head?!!! I'm sure her face smells terrible too. Can't wait for her to retire from T.V. so we don't have to see her ugly face and manly voice again.
