You likely recall the trend of teenagers eating Tide pods as part of some weird dare several months ago (although thankfully, most of them proved they’re not that dumb and it was more talk than action) and apparently, the little pods look like candy to little ones. So much so that all of the safety packaging had to be revised and commercials were made reminding parents to keep them well out of the reach of children.
Sooooooo, with all that in mind, we’re all kind of wondering why Tide would choose to make their new boxes look exactly like the delicious boxed wine that transformed your life in college.
You even open them by punching out the cardboard at the front, behind which is a spigot.
As usual, the Internet has some thoughts – many of which are genuinely hilarious.
I mean, I’m not going to say that grown adults are going to confuse wine with their laundry detergent and serve it up at dinner, but I mean…with the state of things in America right now, I’m not sure it’s the right time to go taking any chances.
