Doughnut shop pokes fun at 'Tide Pod Challenge' viral trend

In a Twitter post last week Tide warned that its detergent pods should be used for doing laundry and'nothing else. A video accompanying the statement included American Football star Rob Gronkowski who plays for the New England Patriots

'Tide Pods' are brightly coloured American detergent capsules, similar to brands available in the United Kingdom, and YouTubers have been posting videos of themselves eating the capsules - and in some cases foaming at the mouth. Exposure to the concentrated cleaning chemicals can cause second and third-degree burns to the nose, mouth and throat, as well as "difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness. seizures, fluid in the lungs, respiratory arrest, coma or death".

"My 16-year-old son has been making all these jokes about Tide Pods and showing me all the memes with them and he saw that they had them here with the donuts and so I told him I would buy him some", said Melissa Beshirs, a Haysville resident.

Officials have warned parents for years to make sure children don't get their hands on Tide Pods by mistake.

"We just kind of put out the post as just a amusing alternative to a more serious topic", said Trista Patterson, owner of Hurts Donut.

If you're itching to get in on the (highly dangerous) Tide Pod Challenge without any of the life-threatening side effects, a few creative restaurateurs have your back.

Tide took to social media last week in an effort to discourage people from participating in the Tide Pod Challenge.

On Jan. 12, Tide posted a short video on Twitter featuring Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots explaining the use of Tide PODs.

With the potentially fatal Tide Pod Challenge resurfacing and going viral at the end of 2017, many have started to question whether humanity is doomed. "DOING LAUNDRY. Nothing else", Tide captioned the video. It includes tips on storing them so that children can not get them, disposing of the product, and using the Child-Guard packages. Our Pied Pods have that bright, alluring colors that youths crave BUT are 100% edible and 100% not poison.

"Sometimes we've had people that needed to be put on a ventilator to help them breathe", Noble said. Safety is no laughing matter, ' Tide said in a statement.
