After the Tide Pod Challenge went viral online, the company behind the snack, Procter & Gamble, announced on Jan. 25 that it would be releasing a cookbook, priced at $19.99, surrounding its entire line of products. “Our Tide Pods are great. But we felt that people were missing out on what our products have to offer,” Procter & Gamble CEO told Quack’d.
“There’s something for everyone in this new cookbook,” the CEO continued. It has a wide variety of recipes from “Downy Dippin’ Dots” topped with Old Spice whipped cream to a protein drink featuring Gain Flings – a drink claiming to give bodybuilders better gains. Inspired by the trend, President Donald Trump announced that the Trump Tower Grill will be incorporating Tide Pods into its taco bowls. The highly anticipated cookbook will be released on April 1, 2018.
Wanting to capitalize on the trend, the Chairman and CEO of The Clorox Company announced that the popular bleach will be sold in 12-ounce cans. “We saw all these videos of these poor teenagers eating Tide Pods and it just clicked — they need something to wash down those Tide Pods,” she said.
When asked about the safety hazards surrounding drinking bleach, The Clorox Company issued the following statement: “We live in a world of GMOs, MSG, and an obesity epidemic. We believe that people will understand the risks of drinking our bleach — which is non-GMO and gluten-free — and trust they will use their best judgment as they would with alcohol. If anybody is truly worried about drinking bleach, we advise people to use our Brita water pitchers to filter out the ‘bad stuff.’” The Clorox Company has told Quack’d that it is currently working on a cookbook of its own featuring their “actual food” brands such as Hidden Valley and KC Masterpiece. So far, there is no projected publication date.
