SPRINGFIELD, MO — This is an interesting take on the Tide Pod challenge. Springfield Missouri’s Hurts Donut shop is selling doughnut decorated to look like the capsules filled with laundry detergent. The move is in response to the incomprehensible viral movement that has people posting pictures and videos of them eating the poisonous combination.
The caption posted to the Hurts Donut shop’s Facebook page says, “I thought this might clear up any confusion there might have been but now adults are throwing donuts in the washer.” A second post to the page says, “We will even fill them for you. With FOOD. Not laundry detergent. In the case at both locations today and tomorrow.”
YouTube and Facebook are trying to stop the spread of the Tide Pod Challenge, a bizarre and dangerous phenomenon in which social media users eat laundry detergent packets on camera.
