It seems as though people on the internet seem to be obsessed with eating Tide pods (ICYMI, they’re brightly coloured detergent pods which look vaguely edible). Memes are being pumped out at a rapid rate extolling the virtues of Tide pod eating.
It turns out that the resurgence of the Tide pod wave is a 2013 forum discussion and a 2015 Onion article. Of course, Twitter had to get in on the action.
I thought y’all were so weird for talking about eating Tide pods but now I been thinking about how weird it is for so long that now I’m thinking it might not be weird and I wanna eat one too what is this

However, eating Tide pods isn’t a laughing matter. According to the Florida Poison Information Center, toxic effects of ingesting laundry pods include: vomiting for a prolonged period of time, coughing, drowsiness, choking, wheezing, and eye damage. These effects are due to the high, and corrosive, concentrations of alkaline in the product.
