A TikToker Is Selling A Non-FDA Approved “Pink Sauce” And People Have Complained About It Being Rancid
It’s time for another round of entrepreneurial misfires leading to likely lawsuits! A “chef” on TikTok with the handle Chef.Pii is selling a unique condiment to her followers. And she better start choreographing an “I got sued” TikTok dance because that’s probably going to happen. Chef.Pii is hawking Pink Sauce, a condiment named for its color with an unknown flavor that costs $20 and was shipped unrefrigerated in a bag in this heat wave. People actually bought it and surprise, they have received smelly, exploded packages, and can’t figure out what it tastes like. People’s sauces are different shades of pink, the labels are factually impossible and misspelled, and the FDA has no idea who this pink trick even is.
If you search on social media, Pink Sauce is trending. Over on TikTok, Yahoo! says that the user Anna Reports News has shared some videos about the debacle around the sauce. The recipe claims that the condiment is a blend of sunflower seed oil, dragon fruit, chili, honey, and garlic, and a bottle of the stuff costs $20. But Anna has some concerns about the packaging, which claims to have 444 servings, and misspells the word “vinegar.” Also, Anna notes in a video that the ingredients list “milk” but there are no directions to keep the product refrigerated, nor is there an expiration date. And if you think the FDA approved this? LOL. But you know what? I am certain that there is someone out there who would refuse a COVID vaccine but say yes to Pink Sauce. Here are Anna’s videos:
And over on Twitter, Pink Sauce and the people who bought it are getting dragged:

To be fair, I haven’t really seen anyone saying they actually got sick from the product but hopefully, people didn’t eat that shit once it arrived in their homes exploded and smelly like this:

One woman on Twitter tried to recreate the sauce herself via the ingredients Chef.Pii claims are in it. You can see her journey’s end here:
Ok here’s the final result of trying Chef Pii’s #pinksauce
It’s not bad but it’s not good. It’s kind of like a summer aioli sauce that’s heavy on the garlic & chili. Dragon fruit is more for the color than truly adding much depth.

To me, this looks like congealed Pepto-Bismol. The creator of the sauce hopped back onto TikTok after the drama unfolded to address some of the concerns. She apologizes multiple times and says that she’s working on getting the price point down, but sorry, the price is the least of her issues. The FDA is going to call her.
WE ARE FIXING THE ISSUES
Can’t wait until the Pink Sauce controversy inevitably shifts into the Pink Sauce Challenge, where people on TikTok try to drink a whole bottle of it without dying. Good luck!
