People eating Tide pods

I had heard recently that there was a group of moms who were trying to get Procter & Gamble to stop making Tide laundry detergent pods look so tasty because kids kept eating them.

I got a call from an old friend a little while ago. Her elderly dad is in the hospital in critical condition. He ate a Tide pod . He doesn't have dementia or anything. My best guess is that his failing eyesight and sense of taste led him to believe that he was eating something edible.

Is it possible that Tide pods are just that good? I have some in my laundry room...
