A video was published online in June by Florida native Veronica Shaw, also known as chef Pii. A “pink sauce” marked FICTITIOUS NUTRITION was used by the chef in the video. Her use of that sauce in one of her dishes, for which a video recipe was posted, was visible here without any FDA approval. For flavouring her fried chicken, she used that pink sauce. People were curious about what the pink substance in the video clip was and how it tasted, which drew a lot of attention to it. In a later statement, she admitted that the pink sauce she had made and used was just one of her inventions. She also expressed her intense excitement in response to internet users’ questions about her pink sauce.
The majority of the audience was more interested in pink sauce sales and consumption because it is such an unusual sauce to hear about and to taste. Following some feedback, chef PII also added that the sauce was only intended to be sold for a short period of time—20 days, maybe—and that it is still undergoing numerous trials and rejections with regard to taste, texture, nutritional value, and other factors. Even some of the audience and fans club members didn’t like this stunt she pulled because she did it on purpose to boost her visibility and attract attention from the general public.
Food Safety Debate Sparked by Chef Pii’s Trending Pink Sauce
Because of her skill in creating a variety of sauces that have been referred to as divine, she doesn’t care about the nutritional value of food or how popular she becomes. The FDA hasn’t approved the sauce for mass production and hasn’t recognised it either, which is how the whole incident got started after her video went viral on tiktok showing her drinking the same pink sauce that wasn’t chilled and using it on her fried chicken. This incident revealed the conflicting emotions of the audience, with one side thrilled by the chef’s new creative invention and the other concerned about the food substance’s diminished nutritional value in the sauce.
Talking about this one other incident involves a tiktoker and his video, which he posted himself while denouncing these experiments using edible materials and calling them one of the ugliest ways to gain followers and publicity. He talked about how a woman had rashly attempted to blend bubblegum and buttermilk just for the purpose of posting it online. The audience was then repeatedly questioned about supporting small businesses by the same lady. How people are supposed to support those people is nothing but irony.
Who’s just trying to mock food and other consumables to look cool on social media platforms? However, if we dig a little deeper, we can see that these incidents are not the first time that such inventive posts have gone viral on the various social media platforms. In one of the earlier cases, a woman was selling her farts online for millions of dollars to specific individuals, and they were buying it. The level of absurdity that people will go to in order to garner media attention and attention on social media is as high as it gets.
