I just did laundry today and used Tide pods to do it. As I dropped the slippery pods into the laundry, all I could think was ‘Why on earth would people try to eat them?’ I’m not talking about little kids finding one and going “ooo!” I’m not even talking about kids being fed laundry pods by uninformed grandmas. I’m talking about teenagers who are old enough to no better chomping down on the things just to see if they can do it.
Yes, I know, I’ve been under a rock with the rest of the media and apparently this has been going on for a little while, but still. What’s wrong with people?
Now that that’s out of the way, we can have some fun. There’s a pizza place in Brooklyn that decided to make fun of this odd phenomenon by making pod-like calzones that can be eaten.
Brooklyn pizza maker Sean Berthiaume says the idea for “pied pods” came to him in a dream.
The colourful calzone concoctions are made to look like Tide laundry detergent pods, but the blue and orange swirls are made from cheese dyed with food colouring.
Freaking awesome. At least something funny can come out of this steaming pile of stupid.
