You can now try the Tide Pod challenge at an NYC pizzeria

First, it was the “gallon challenge” and the “cinnamon challenge.”

Now videos circulating on social media are showing kids biting into brightly colored liquid laundry detergent packets. Or cooking them in frying pans, then chewing them up before spewing the soap from their mouths.

Experts say the game, dubbed the “Tide pod challenge,” is dangerous.  Your putting laundry detergent into you mouth.  NOT SMART.


Vinnie's Pizzeria on Bedford Ave in Brooklyn is now selling “PIEd Pods,” a riff on the Tide Pod challenge. 

Of course, the pizza restaurant's new creation doesn't contain any actual Tide. Instead, the pockets are pizza dough stuffed with mozzarella and pepperoni and topped with blue-dyed cheese. And, as the Insta handle states, it's "100% not poison."

We here at KTU in no way, shape or form, endorses eating laundry detergent. But, if you want to join in on the hype, these pizza pods are definitely the safest way.
