Tide Pod Challenge

I might not take Gronk's advice all the time but I will here and say to not eat these pods.

The newest internet craze has become the "Tide Challenge" and it involves people posting videos of themselves putting the toxic laundry detergent pods in their mouths, eating them, putting them in various foods and posting for all to see.

A quick YouTube search returns a thread of videos showing people eating the pods and gagging.

The internet has exploded with the highly unsafe "Tide Pod challenge", in which teens are supposed to stuff their mouth with detergent powder and even use it for cooking.

The challenge has gone viral with countless memes, videos and pictures posted on different social media outlets encouraging others to join in.

Once he bites into it, the pod oozes detergent, and he immediately attempts to spit it out. They have the fat, juicy appearance of fresh berries and they seem like they would pop with fruit flavour in your mouth, but they are very bad for you and you should not consume them, despite how much your primitive brain tries to convince you that you should.

In recent years, the company even made the pod containers more childproof after reports of children mistaking them for candy and eating them unknowingly.

Regarding the challenge, Procter and Gamble issued the statement: "Our laundry packs are a highly concentrated detergent meant to clean clothes and they're used safely in millions of households every day. They should not be played with, whatever the circumstance is, even if it is meant as a joke".
