Texas baker makes 'Tide Pod'-inspired pan dulce

- A San Antonio-based baker took to Instagram to share their latest creation: Tide Pod-inspired pan dulce. The conchas are topped with an orange and blue swirl, resembling the concentrated detergent packs.

“I’m ready for laundry day… Tide Pod anyone?” Cakes By Jandy captioned the photo.

Several bakeries and restaurants have created edible treats like donuts and pies resembling the not-so-edible detergent packs, stemming from the "Tide Pod Challenge". 

Of course, Cakes By Jandy warned people to not eat real detergent packs, as have multiple agencies reminding people that eating detergent can cause illness.

Procter & Gamble says it's working to stop the "Tide Pod challenge," a social media-fueled trend in which teenagers eat single-load laundry detergent packets.

The American Association of Poison Control Centers warned that it had seen a spike in teenagers eating the detergent pods, which it says can cause seizures, respiratory arrest and even death.

CEO David Taylor called the trend "dangerous" and "extremely concerning" in an online post. He said the company is working with social media companies to remove videos of people biting into the detergent, and asked adults to speak with children about the hazards.
