'Tide Pod challenge' inspires culinary trend: 'Tide Pod' donuts
CAROLINA BEACH, N.C.- The dangerous "Tide Pod Challenge" has inspired a culinary trend: Tide Pod donuts.
The "Tide Pod Challenge" is a social media-fueled trend, which involves teenagers eating laundry detergent packets. The detergent is not meant for human consumption.
Inspired by the alarming trend, Wake N Bake Donuts has introduced "Tide Pod donuts." These deep-fried pastries look exactly like the detergent capsule, but these are edible.
"This is a Donut....you can eat this! Tide is for laundry, silly," Wake N Bake Donuts wrote on their Instagram page.
"I definitely didn't think we would make a Tide Pod donut," Danny Tangredi, owner of Wake N Bake Donuts said. "But I also didn't think people would eat Tide pods."
