By now you have probably heard about TikTok's infamous Pink Sauce. It wasn't MADE by TikTok, to be clear, but that was where the actual creator decided to market and sell their product. Except, then people actually TRIED it and the results were... not good. Today, I want to figure out what went wrong with the Pink Sauce - from the recipe to the regulations. Let's get cooking!

honestly your pink sauce looks good.... can i buy a bottle?
DO NOT BUY THAT SAUCE
Whoever meet the pink sauce is a psychopath
How it ALL started
It does. You just have to throw them hard enough.
I am severely allergic to a certain food colourant, even the smallest amount triggers anaphylaxis so this is my biggest nightmare. There’s a reason why there’s a label on all foods with the ingredients listed.
Also egg allergies are becoming extremely common so if she’s using mayo and not declaring it, she can seriously hurt a lot of people who try it
@Oscar Univerze lol
@Itsjustmaddisenyoupeasant. I mean they do state that in the video so.
@So this is how usernames work. I hope so:/
At the end it’s easy to see why they are married to each other they make each other laugh so much that it’s honestly adorable to see matpat losing it laughing at Steph’s “pour it on someone at the castle gates” comment
Watching her leave the Security Breach series made me depressed tho ngl felt bad for her so much
they are relationship goals incarnate lol
0:24: If Systemic Issues and Real-Life-Lore interest all Theorists, which i assume, then try the Channel literally named Real-Life-Lore as well as Some-More-News.
Made for those with a Theorist's Spirit.
If any of you are wondering what happened with pink sauce, well it looks like she sold it to some company that actually got it FDA approved and is now being sold for half the price
@Schemes the Fox Probably because it's edible. Although it's not Pink anymore.
@ming lou She did all that crap and STILL blamed the customers. At least she’s not selling it like before, but I’m also kind of surprised it even sells at all now.
Well we are going to die
@StuffedCaverns it’s totally pink
1) Anyone else liked Steph’s “what the heck Mat” face when he was putting on the label on her forehead while she was minding her own business? It gets me every time 😂 4:10
2)MatPat, WHY IN THE DRAGON FRUIT ARE YOU ONLY WEARING ONLY ONE SOCK?
I thought I was gonna be the only one who noticed.
His toe nails were currently a bit too long to feel comfortable in socks/one nail is raggedy and he's concerned about terring the fabric/hates the feeling of fabric brushing against a raggedy toe nail and wasn't able to trim before filming (all of these are the exact reason I sometimes sport one sock at home 😅 otherwise two socks all the way)
Saving on detergent?
personally, i like Steph's idea at the end. first, you pour the oil on your enemies as they try and siege your castle's gate...
and then you launch a flaming arrow.
Or it can be boiling hot
"You are judging a prototype"
You are SELLING a prototype. You don't sell prototypes to the public, you sell the final product.
@Atomic Unicorn Gaming You can just use “they/them” for people who’s pronouns you don’t know-
This is some lore straight out of Fallout
@Assassin 71 it's fine to release demos or prototypes of video games. They won't cause you bodily harm. There's no harm in having people test it, unlike food
@Alex Gade yeah, but video game prototypes aren't gonna give you food poisoning
@blastem aston yeah, but in the case of Nintendo, a free update is both free and not gonna bring you bodily harm if it doesn't work right
Okay, the biggest issue with the sauce was shipping in the summer heat. To combat it what she could have done was simply use dry ice to keep it cold, but instead she shipped a perishable sauce in extreme heat
@Rellik Oh, pfcourse not, she ruined her own character percetion and, again, I've got no hirse in this race, so I'm nit trying to defend her, but the implication that she reused mayo bottles does imply a lot of negative things about the product and it's quality and the way tye video presents them, like most of matpat theories, is under the guise of a well-reasearched argument. That's why I think it could potentially be taken as defamatory. Nkt that i think Mat Pat deserves to get in trouble for a fun video speculatiomg on a product.
I'm not a fan of capitalism, personally. So bringing scruteny to any brand or company is a thubs up in my book.
@Gonzalo Fraguas Bringas not even close to bordering on defamation. reusing bottles isn't a negative remark, and he didn't state it as a fact. that speculation didn't ruin her character.
@Gonzalo Fraguas Bringas Oh I know it's from speculation, I just mean that like- if she was reusing the mayo bottles then it would make sense why they wouldnt be sealed properly yk? Also I didnt know it's been debunked, good to know.
@Raeisyah Zafira I get you. And I have no reason to defend her. The way she's reacted to every single controversy has been very unprofessional. But things like the mayo in her sauce have been debunked allready and people have found the specific bottles she ordered. The "reused" mayo bottles is speculation from Mat Pat, bordering on defamation. Glad he hasn't gotten in trouble for it 😅
@Gonzalo Fraguas Bringas That makes sense but like you said, there are three things thatit need. So technically keeping it in a cool place can help. Though by this logic, chef P isnt sealing her sauces which kinda makes sense if you go by the "shes reusing mayo bottles" thing
Here in Argentina we have a pink sauce that's made out of beetroot! It's actually very good and safe to eat since it's just beet puree with lemon and seasonings 😋
also there is pink soup made of beetroot and sour cream called salti barsciai.
Tenemos de eso?
See, I was thinking that beets could be used as a natural dye
Well that sounds good. I love trying actual condiments from other countries. I remember eating a purple/blue ketchup while I was in the Philippines
I hope that Mat and Steph take a look at the How To Cook That vid that covers this topic. Maybe they could do a collaboration on a more technical food vid one day.
@Alter Ego: Bruh No, I'm just not interested in getting into a futile time-consuming argument. I don't have the time to unpack drawn-out walls of text with no clear structure (in terms of what's being talked about, not the formatting of the text). Your TL;DR is the same length as the average post I've made here.
@ccaagg Oh, and.
If you are unwilling to read my whole argument, then we aren’t continuing this until you do. It shows immaturity. Do big passages scare you?
@Alter Ego: Bruh Yeah I'm not reading that. Maybe examine why you're so infuriated by this woman who did nothing more than make some mistakes and be unaware of what the FDA is or the requirement for approval. The sauce is safe, nobody got hurt and nobody was really at risk of getting hurt. Let it go. She doesn't deserve this.
@ccaagg Here’s an example of her lying: She posted a TikTok saying there was no garlic in the recipe. Another video of hers shows garlic floating in oil in the blender she’s using to make the sauce. And she may not need certifications but she DOES need to be FDA approved to ship her thing nationwide, which she WAS doing, and she was NOT approved. Cottage Law is only for a certain area around you; she was shipping everywhere. You also aren’t addressing that she literally spelt vinegar wrong on her nutrition label. That shows so much inadequacy in that you care so little about said label that you misspell a word on it, print it, put it on the bottle, and ship it out before you notice.
I trust her as a food scientist, but I also know that this lady was still not FDA approved. Certification needed or not, she was not approved to be shipping nationwide, and it DOES need approval. Whether or not it would spoil during transit, she was not allowed to do that. So her doing it anyway is means enough to say “Do not order this. She is not allowed to sell this to you if you are too far away.”
Mat is, above anything, an entertainer. That is his number one priority with these channels. Not to be factual or have “good” theories. Biggest thing is that people watch the video and engage with it.
Sure, he does want to make good and informative stuff. But to say those are number one are to say that those are the biggest aspect of it. They aren’t. And he’s being hammered about this specific subject when many, many other creators who also cover this situation and say basically exactly what he says get no hate. Because, at the end of the day, they say, “Don’t buy this. It could potentially be very bad for you.”
That is not a bad thing to say. Is it because everyone is coming for the chef girl? She shouldn’t have tried to nationally sell what she claimed was a prototype.
“That was a prototype.”
No. It was a $20 bottle of pink ranch that she is not allowed to sell to most, MOST, of her costumers.
It’s approved NOW. Because other people are making it. They can regulate it. The FDA approved it. It is in WalMarts. But it wasn’t, not in the early stages. Those are when warnings mattered. Buy it now. It’s safe now.
It was not safe then. It was not regulated, it was not FDA approved. It was not legal to ship across country. And people still did (allegedly) get sick from it during those times.
And I again feel the need to reiterate, she did not know what the FDA stands for as a (assumedly) certified chef. And she didn’t get it approved before shipping nationwide. It’s safe now, but we can’t be sure it was then. Spelling words wrong on your label means you lose all trust until you fix up your act.
Another thing is that she went on a talk show to bash some girl who gave a poor public review and said “You should’ve just came to me about it.”
Yeah, because then her fans wouldn’t know about you selling food to people you aren’t supposed to sell to.
TLDR, she was not allowed to sell as she did. Ann says her food is/was safe. It is now, it might’ve been then. Because who truly knows how she made it. It changed colors multiple times, so it presumably changed recipes. Whether or not it is safe, she was not allowed to do what she did. She doesn’t need to be certified but she does need to have the FDA know she’s not poisoning people with her product. It was not an honest mistake because she didn’t fix it until she let someone else fix it. Pink Sauce is ran by someone else now (I’ve heard that she sold it; I’ve heard that she partnered with them. Either way, it was all them that made it FDA approved.).
@Alter Ego: Bruh There are no requisite certifications, and I don't recall any actual lying. It'd be great if you could point it out to me. She has simply made mistakes and isn't deserving of this deluge of derision.
Also, "Even if her video is correct"? Interesting that you doubt a food scientist over someone with absolutely zero qualifications in the field. MatPat has time and time again demonstrated himself to be a grifter.
Side note I freakin love how goofy these two are at the end of the episode
If Genie were to grant me one wish, I wish for everyone to be as happy, healthy, and long lasting as MatSteph
@Somedorkydude nooo :(
Do it again
@Aight Imma Head Out it took a bit but I was in jail for saying meph and so I had to call saul
Aww now this is wholesome
No. Masteph (Take out the t) that way it sounds like the dog breed!
Or Stephew. No explanations needed
@Anthony Preach, speak louder for the ones at the back
Steph is an absolute treasure, I love seeing her in more videos!
I remember MatPat talking about only wearing 1 sock at a time but seeing it in action feels unnatural somehow lol
I have a confession... I sometimes wear 1 sock when my other sock gets wet, it's not bad
Steph hair so 🥰 cute
@DuckyLikesToDraw don't diss it till you try it
I do that all the time for no particular reason, my family likes to make fun of me for it
I was looking for this comment, lol.
One thing that the pink sauce reviews were missing was a proper knowledge on how sauces are made. Although pink sauce doesn’t have correct labeling(mostly relating to calories and serving sizes) and the creator didn’t handle herself well in an interview you can still make the sauce without mayo. You can make it completely with what she lists ingredient wise. Dragon fruit (and apparently mustard can even do this) can be used as like an Emulsifier stabler. I will say in her “official sauce” that will be coming to stores it doesn’t look as pink it looks more like the original prototype so I can only assume that they don’t use dragon fruit as an emulsifier then. That is presumably what is used to stabilize her sauce in the stuff she sold online. I don’t think anyone should necessarily eat her online self sold sauce. Mostly for the reasoning it’s sold out of her house and I just don’t recommend trusting anyone cleanliness in that matter but that may just be me. As for the sauce that will be sold in stores, it has to go through the fda so it’ll be fine. It’ll probably just taste like ranch. Matt patt did a wonderful video but I think if he had a better understanding of how sauces were made he would have came up with a possibly more accurate conclusion. I would totally check out how to cook that episode on pink sauce. Maybe mattpatt and her could make a video together one day maybe on pink sauce lol. Either way though I love mattpatts videos. They’re always a fun way to learn and a nice perspective
I just appreciate the text effort
Ann Reardon's 'How to Cook That channel just released a video debunking some of the claims circulating on the internet. I hope MatPat does a revisit of this topic and takes an unbiased take on it.
Ann Reardon, a food scientist just put out a video of actually recreating the pink sauce with just the ingredients on the list and it turned out well. She also goes and debunks some of the claims that the sauce is deadly and more. I would really recommend checking it out. Its so fascinating watching a professional explain the whole pink sauce situation and how tiktok and youtube blew it out of proportion.
I mean, you can say she debunked but it was genuinely arriving gone bad so......
I also just watched a video from Illuminaughtii (she gave a little shout out to Matt Pat and Ann's videos). She does a really good job unpacking the situation. After doing her own research she found that yeah, all the errors and missing information on the bottles were a problem. Yes the way she defended herself seemed less informative and more combative, and she had plenty of missteps along the way. However, as far as making people sick, this doesn't appear to be true. There's a legit social media group dedicated to trolling her and her sauce at every opportunity. The one guy who supposedly died from eating pink sauce came out said he made the whole thing up, and so far there are zero confirmed cases of anybody actually getting sick. The channel also points out that while she definitely SHOULD know what the FDA is, they don't actually treat food and drug products the same. Drugs need to be pre-approved before going to market. But food products don't need any special pre-approval, and are only subject to inspection when enough complaints or compelling enough concerns pop up (IE a bunch of internet trolls supposedly trying to make her business fail for a meme). And while wild conspiracy theories are not something I'm typically compelled to believe, with the information I have it seems like it may actually be the case in this scenario.
@HoundReactions well considering people were hospitalized for it…. also who cares? he’s a theorist. you know what a theorist is, right?
@Shanggosteen Sorry but your ignorance is very much showing here. Incase you didn’t watch the How To Cook That video by Ann the Botulism was also part of the misinformation which is an even worse thing to say about someone’s business. Like there’s no defending this
@MeganTheeJew and who cares if it's slander, she was serving people poison for god's sake. And if police were to stop her operation I'm sure that would make the world better place. And why are you defending her?
Pink sauce lady would still have a social media career, if she just made videos of her eating the foods with pink sauce, like mukbang type videos and then finally at the end she shows everyone how to make it at home and there's a bunch of viral videos of ppl trying to make the sauce/testing it out.
I can imagine tiktok collabs where they bring her in to help them make it etc.
And then she can work on a different type of content or a new food type item before the viral-ity dies down
I'm sure most have seen the comments about How to Cook That's new video and I agree with all of them saying that FT dropped the ball on this one in some ways. I'm sure that FT thought they looked through enough information to be credible, but I do think one thing is clear: FT needs a Food Scientist. Someone who like Ann who knows exactly how food works would really benefit them and help keep them from theorizing about whether or not a recipe is possible, especially when it involves someone's small business and character. I love seeing Mat and Steph attempt things but, as people who support science and knowledge I would hope they would see the benefit in getting information from Food Scientists .
Perhaps FT should see if Ann would like to assist them on topics like these. It breaks my heart to think there is any way these two channels I love could end up being resentful of each other.
We all love food and we all love theories, but some times some things aren't fair just leaving up theory.
Please FT, get a food scientist to assist in your research
YESSSSSS why can't we all be friends
I completely agree!! I love both channels. For reasons like this and the other video a professional would help not spread misinformation.
Honestly, if you are a fan of ranch or mayonnaise, and would like to have a pink sauce because it just seems cool, then do these 3 simple steps:
1: Buy ranch/mayo and dragonfruit powder
2: Mix those two ingredients
3: use it as “pink sauce” on whatever you please
And boom, you are now enjoying some good-tasting non-dangerous sauce, but it’s pink, so it’s fun :)
As a culinary kid, this lady's product upset me so much, especially learning that she didn't know about the FDA, any personal chef should have their ServSafe, and she would know about the freaking FDA just from getting that certification, let alone the other multitude of certificates she would need. It hurts my little culinary heart to see people try to sell this off as a healthy natural product
@Aj Wilkie Sounds strangely similar to the government 🤔 lmfao
Im not a culinary kid, but an art kid. I feel so bad for people who are trying to make healthy, or at least safe food products.
@se se why?
Watch Ann reason how to cook that video discrediting food theorist
@Lev it is literally on their website. I've told you were to look.
Seems like this needs a follow-up video. Ann Reardon has addressed some issues with the sauce just recently.
(In Britney Spears voice)
I think I did it again~
Ann Reardon on How To Cook That just made a great video about the pink sauce, and as a food scientist and dietitian she can give a bit more insight on the product.
Check it out :)
Thank you for this wonderful comment 😊
Very true. I wish her video came out first so the Therorist team could have used her as a reference as well.
I love the respectful nature of you comment❤🥺
Somehow, I imagine that slapping a random label on stephs face like that isn't an uncommon occurrence for you matpat. You guys are so adorable and I am so glad the universe brought you two together. Lots of love!❤❤❤
I enjoy theory videos with matt but wow is it such a unique vibe with Ms.theorist and Mr.theorist, this chemistry deserves more videos :)
3:55 Recently with Dave Gourmet she updated the ingredients and nutrition facts, and it’s FDA approved. They use coconut cream which was definitely not on the label months ago. Definitely not safe to sell a “prototype”, but at least it’s safer now.
I love how she is taking such steps to keep her recipe secret while also not realizing she is setting herself up to lose any and all lawsuits
Bruh did she forget about the law where secret ingredients or methods can cease to be named on the packaging? This whole thing is stupid.
@Ian Luk Probably thinks its a special suit worn by law practitioners (aka lawyers)
She might not even know what a lawsuit is. I wouldn't be surprised
She thought her product was protected by the same rules that a lemonade stand or a baked good sale falls under...
@Rosy tears of joy
If you want to make it at home and not spend $5 on one dragon fruit or buy the powder, you could also probably get the same color with beets instead
Yeah but beets would probably alter the flavor much more than dragonfruit.
If the dragonfruit's only function is color, then you could probably substitute beets for a fraction of the cost and some of that fiber listed on the "nutrition label". There are existing recipes combining beets and dairy for an eye-searing pink hue.
(use canned beets or cook them first, as raw beets will destroy your blender)
@Lieutenant BaconWaffles also watching the quality food theory channel, how to cook that, nice.
Turns out dragonfruit works as an emulsifier.
Yeah beets in sauces have long been a thing. A popular dressing in Britain in WW2 was "royal dressing" which had a purplish pink colour from beets.
Hey MatPat! Would love to see a new video on the topic. Ann Readen from How to Cook That did an awesome video about the subject and pretty much found the recipe. Would be great to see you guys atempt it!
But if you take the oil, garlic and vinegar and blend them with a bit of milk for a long time, you've just made a sort of aioli (which looks a lot like mayo) and I believe the honey works as a binding agent to make it stay consistent... Add in the dragon fruit, it becomes pink. Add in the other spices and ingredients, and voilá, pink sauce. It's just a homemade proto-mayo/aioli hybrid with a bunch of extra stuff.
7ls h3lp i3 not supposed to be h3r3
I have my own pink sauce my family loves with fries! Its just mayo and ketch-up! And if you want it really pink just use food coloring. However my family calls it "fry sauce" and used it way before pink sauce but I'd still suggest trying it
@The Sun So glad!! I'd suggest trying it a few times intill you get the amount of ketch-up and mayo you want as some people may like more mayo in it or more ketch-up! Hope you enjoy it :DD
That siunds amazing! I sure am going to try this!
Food theory idea: does an apple a day really keep the doctor away?
And now its here😊g
An apple a day can keep the doctor away if you throw it hard enough.
If you throw it at 690.673 mph
It’s been made!
I love the power couple dynamic that Mat and Steph have.
You should look at "How to Cook That", the food scientist that runs the channel was able to replicate Pinky Sause with the ingredients on the label. Turns out the Dragon Fruit is an emulsifier.
How to Cook That Chanel actually has a great video debunking the sauce and explaining the difference of color
Fun fact about the red dragonfruit as food coloring : the color can stand against heat and stay vibrant pink/red. So, if you need natural red food coloring, this can be good alternative.
I did a little DIY experiment by mixing ranch and very finely chopped up and blended strawberries, and got a similar result to how the dragon fruit is, it’s an extremely interesting flavor
I'm honestly astounded that she's even allowed to sell this. I remember when we set up a small pop-up concessions booth at a school festival, we had to have a licensed food health and safety officer come inspect our ingredients, food storage, food processing methods, prep surfaces, etc. to get the equivalent of a day pass to sell food to the public. Food safety is serious.
I’m not surprised at all.
She wasn't, she was trying to circumvent by saying it was like a product u can buy at some home baked goods stall, FDA slammed her hard and she was FORCED to find a backer and licensed food outlet to create a FDA approved version meaning all that money she made was spent on legal and contracting leaving her with very little of her small ill made gains
She isn't the government just ignores crime if you're doing it on social media and under 30 or something
@PandaMonium 9 Watch Ann reardon “howtocookthat” channel on this. She’s a food scientist and disproved just about all the BS alarmist people were saying. She’s goes into every detail and even recreates the sauce. Hint, dragon fruit has been used as an emulsifier in food before
“Food safety is serious”
😒 apparently not…
“Viral video without the virus” Matt’s catchphrases and dad jokes are EPIC
When she said she didn't know what the FDA and couldn't say what was used to make the sauce really should've raised a whole bunch of red flags.
The best part about this video is that she can’t sue you guys or it will be revealed that she actually did use mayonnaise and ranch in her product
Ok, video topic aside, the interaction between you and Steph is just too precious. Keep up the great work on this channel!
You should do a follow up on this after how to cook thats video.
The lady who did pink sauce made a lot of mistakes but you can make the sauce with just the Ingredients listed
I'm honestly quite confused why she hasn't been taken to court yet. She has a nutrition facts that make NO SENSE
Holy- MOM I'M FAMOUS
FDA be having fun to scramble her adress
She came close to being hit with a massive legal battle with the FDA if she continued as yes her 'product' fell foul of several rulings and was NOT protected by the rules she thought did
Not nutrition “facts” nutrition opinions
My favorite bit from the whole video was about the castle gates at the end. They have such a wholesome marriage. It’s refreshing.
I can't wait for 2K ♥️
You should probably revisit this one now that Ann from HowToCookThat has put in some fresh light on the subject
at lest take the video down and issue an apology
I love the videos where matpat and steph cook together it just shows what a cute couple they are.
Turns out dragon fruit is an emulsifier itself so no mayo required. Also it has plenty of acidifiers to prevent botulism. Might want to check out How To Cook That’s methodical review.
@mujnick But the thing is that legally speaking, the ingredients list on the labels must be from most to less. So what Mat wanted to show is the extent of wrong of the label. Good that other person showed it is possible to make, both videos are proof of what a joke "Chef" Pii is. Sorry if I made a mistake, this is not my first language.
@Stricken Even Ann the food scientist, someone who likely has more culinary experience and credentials than MatPat and Pii, said she never heard of dragonfruit as an emulsifier; do you expect an untrained, unschooled chef to figure out what an expert didn't know 1. Agreed. 2. That still is something that needs to be identified and addressed by the chef, if some food product changed color and I didn't know why I'd probably throw it out. 3. The fact that she did it initially shows a lack of responsibility, though good on her for fixing the problem. 4. That is the point, who would you trust, a licensed food scientist or somebody who claims to be a chef with no credentials to back it up? Nobody calls themselves a chef based on that; by that logic, anybody who's made some semblance of food could be called a chef. Big difference between chef and cook. 5. The point is that there is an emulsifier in all of the other products. Dragonfruit is a relatively unknown emulsifier such that a food scientist couldn't have known, you're expecting that someone magically cracked that code?
Occam's Razor; given that a professional (or at least a semi-professional higher than Chef Pii) didn't know about dragonfruit being an emulsifier until experimenting, the chances that Pii did is slim. Add that to the lack of proper labelling, and it's just as possible (if not more) that Pii used a pre-existing mayo.
Don't be pretentious on the internet because you think you know more, respectfully disagree with people without telling them "they're babbling."
@dragonbretheren what "specific technique"???? All homemade mayo or aioli are made by blending liquids then very slowly streaming oil into it. You put emulsifiers to keep them blended and prevent them from separating. I learned this while watching masterchef and the Tasty channel as a teen. Do you even know what you're saying or you're just babbling? Eggless/vegan sauces often use soy lecithin. Yes, the dragonfruit being an emulsifier was a surprise but that doesn't change the fact that what Matt said was incorrect regarding the viability of the sauce's ingredients to create a creamy sauce.
I'm not suding with Pii, just answering your points
1. Yes she doesn't. She should have hired someone to do this properly.
2. The dragon fruit, which acts as bot the colorant and emulsifier, changes color overtime based on Ann's experiment.
3. That was on the first part of the trend. She fixed her packaging. I personally haven't seen anyone who recently received exploded packages, etc. Even Alli received an undisturbed package.
4. She said she is a private chef, no culinary experience (hotel or resto) and didn't go to culinary school. Although, you don't have to get a license to be a chef. I'm not saying she should but she can definitely call herself a chef.
5. Same as point 1. And, hundreds of eggless mayo recipe can be found on the web. Her ingredients list is basically a copy of these recipe: oil, milk/water, acid, emulsifier, spices and flavor (salt and sugar).
Please, don't add points that you yourself can easily say is not wholly true if you just tried to do a little search about it.
@dragonbretheren what’re you talking about “specific technique” she blended it together and the only reason Anne didn’t know how dragonfruit worked is because she’d never used it before which she herself mentioned
can we talk how matt has one sock? Love the videos keep up the work!
I’ve never understood why she refuses to tell us what it tastes like 😭 if you’re shipping out a new branded product of yours at least tell us what it tastes like..
@Cat lord after seeing how it’s packaged I would never eat it but that’s just me. Ig that’s pretty smart though.
@I'm SUBBING to EVERYONE who SUBS to ME ສະນັ້ນ ເຈົ້າມາຈາກປະເທດລາວ. ຂ້ອຍບໍ່ຮູ້ວ່າເຈົ້າເປັນຄົນຈີນຫຼືຍີ່ປຸ່ນ. ຂ້ອຍຂໍໂທດ, ຂ້ອຍຫາຍໃຈຟືນ propane ຫຼາຍເກີນໄປ
Actually . . . Thats the point. If you don't know what it tastes like then most likely you'll buy it out of curiosity.
@I'm SUBBING to EVERYONE who SUBS to ME oh,oh shiver my timbers,shiver my fucking timbers💀
@Bulwarkeiser Good ideea
Wasn't there an I Love Lucy episode kinda sorta like this? Lucy and Ethel started selling a salad dressing, and it became too popular. They got out from under it by slapping their label on an already established dressing.
It's been waaay too long since I saw it last and of course I can't find it anywhere. The point might be that slapstick comedy comes to mind...
@Brandi Mullins Much better stated than I ever could!
i know EXACTLY the episode you're talking about. basically the same thing happened to them as "chef" Pi. they didn't anticipate the popularity and demand of their product and didn't have the infrastructure to meet that demand so they cut corners which ultimately became their downfall
Gotta say, I just stumbled upon your channel and I subscribed because of Steph making her "pour in on them at rhe castle gates" comments. I'm still laughing. Thank you guys, your both great!
My school canteen has a version of pink sauce they serve with the keropok lekor. They just mixed chili sauce and mayo.
My friends said it was spicy.
Yep I’m from Malaysia.
MatPat went from hardcore McDonald's theories to hardcore pink sauce theories! We love it!
That castle gates joke at the end came out of nowhere , got me laughing for a good 5 minutes
the lady asking "It is just a prototype why is the FDA trying to get involved?" has the same energy as the kitchen nightmares resteraunt owner who asked Ramsey "What are you a health inspector?"
@Felipe Proto 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯
Edline Nannencia I literally just dealt with one of you guys. Stop trying to leech off other people.
@Scott Stout Same here.
@TheCrunchyDerp i already did
As someone who enjoyed dragon fruit for the first time recently. I call it a backup fruit. It's not strong enough to stand on its own, but like papaya it can really play well with just about any other standalone fruit.
My only problem is you CAN get that kind of consistency. Egg whites, for one example, can be beaten until they thicken. Use only some of those ingredients and beat until they thicken, then fold in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Take butter for example, you can make it from just milk, though it takes a really long time to thicken into butter, but it IS possible.
Dried dragon fruit powder. That's what she uses to colour the sauce and that's the reason why the colour of the sauce pales after a while.
That was an Awesome presentation; I loved the breakdown; it makes sense. While working from home remotely, I saw the Karamo show with Chef Pii about the PINK sauce and the bad comments she received. Looks like a brand is picking her up. I will definitely look at the label. Great Job 👍👍🌈🌈
Please do an update that shows how her recipe works. Now that everybody knows.
To be honest, I have no idea how pii has the guts to call herself a chef when she just mixed mayo and chili powder and shipped it out without thinking that it would spoil over time.
@The guy from internet and vinegar which causes milk to curdle when mixed in, so in truth the stuff shouldn't even be lasting a few days even in ideal conditions
Don't forget about milk!
Considering how many I encountered in the last 20 years of working in restaurants….the chef piis of the world are taking over. They have no shame nor competence. Just a whole lot of attitude and a whole lot fake nails and hair.
I watched to the end, and Steph is a genuinely funny person. You got yourself a catch bro.
But you can make an emulsion with the ingredients listed. You can emulsify oil with just garlic: aioli. Maybe that's why there was supposed to be so much garlic in it. I still doubt that the listed amount is correct, but in the right direction. My guess is that the pink sauce is aioli, with some spices, a little honey and dragonfruit for coloring
She also said that she included mayonnaise into her mix, so I would recommend making a sequel add mayonnaise leave it out in the heat for around a day and see how it taste
You two are funny….the end…that laughing, made me miss those carefree days where Id laugh out oud, and always look forward to whats was next in life. 😅. Love it
So I know it's been awhile. But apparently Dragon Fruit IS the binding agent. If prepared properly that way. A little wild.
I can now finally say that MatPat is a certified detective at solving food mysteries.
havent watched the ann reardon video yet i presume... he didnt so much 'solve mysteries' as just 'make stuff up'
And yet FNAF is a bigger mystery that cannot be solved by Matpat fully. Only a little less then fully is left for him to do and... ! His unable to do it.
@I'm SUBBING to EVERYONE who SUBS to ME bro 💀
as french who likes good foods, i am deeply offended by those trends...
17:56 is the best part of the video. That it took a second to percolate through MatPat's head was the Bonus!
Edit to Add: BTW, I'd never heard of this at all. I refused to click on it for ages because I thought it was the same as the pink meat sludge that got kinda old. I'm glad I finally watched. This situation was truly bizarro!
I can't wait for 2K ♥️
Stephs face when testing their final
product was priceless
I tip my hat to the both of y'all on telling me about this, because honestly like you mentioned in the video; 1, I prefer Clip-Share over Tik-Tok; 2, I actually didn't know about the 'pink sauce' until before I saw this video; & lastly 3, your ingredient recipe sounds way better explainable & understandable, compared to the 'prototype' 'pink sauce' bottle that you created the video about. So as I said before, I tip my hat with respect to you both.
I honestly wouldn't be suprised if she took ranch and added a few things to it and labeled it as her own sauce
You should sell your creation as "Matt Patt's Mixture" since it's an original recipe based on the nutritional label.
I’m a food product developer and this product just…hurts my soul. If I did what she did I would lose my job. It takes months to finalise a product and for her to just send it out half assed is frustrating to see . Love seeing your detective product developer work!
@lordDope I studied food technology at high school ( sometimes known as home economics). I also did it at A level and then went to university and did B(Sc) Food technology and new product development. There are many jobs in the food industry that aren’t really talked about but are really cool.
@chelsea Hillier that sounds really cool and interesting, can you share what you studied in college to get that sort of job or what job title I should be looking for?
@just some mad birb without a mustache Sorry, my bad
@💣 Nagito Komaeda 💣 nah bro y'all wrong he coding them and giving ideas on how they should taste like and where they can be found for example
Taste:juicy taste like apple(sourness:1.2,sweetness6.3, refreshingness1.5)
@Flowmaster925 I think that just means they developed brands and food product means ketchup, Maynards candy and stuff. It’s just items of consumption
Let’s take a step back and appreciate Steph and Matt, their relationship is amazing
That "pouring oil at the castle gates" had me in stitches for about 5 minutes LOL
it would be better to share the recipe so people do it at home instead of buying it that’s why we needed mat to upload this
this is the reason why i watch he posts good content he actually puts time effort into
Matpats laugh at the end is so amazing
The idea that Pink Sauce Bottles are just re-used Mayo Bottles seems so hysterical and stupid at the same time
But.. it’s likely
@dino-nuggies Matpat the chef lady just maid a sauce
your right it dose seem stupid so stupid you wonder why he would put it in his video, when clearly and with common since that's not what happened.
Which team are you on?
Plastic condiment bottles with yellow lids are just the most widely available unbranded ones available if you don’t have the funds to have one custom designed.
In 15:28 if you look closely it says may contain eggs. I know that normally means that the factory that it produced it in has some kind of egg product, but in this case it might be a legal loophole.
I can’t get over the fact that Matt was only wearing a single sock this whole video 😂
You should have sent the sauce made from the ingredients list to Chef Pii
About the servings per container...
A normal sized container of grated parmesan cheese had 91 servings per container. Also, Sriracha has more than a hundred servings.
awesome to finally put a face to your channel, great video 💯
With Steph's background in pharmacology, I can imagine having improperly labeled consumables might be extremely frustrating to her.
RIP for Steph
something about oliver's macaroni art on the fridge makes this feel like a craft show i watched when i was little and it was very nostalgic. ill never eat the pink sauce but i enjoyed this video
Be careful crushing garlic with the blade facing you. It's safer to have the blade facing away so you don't accidentally cut your hand. Keep up the great work 👍. Love all the channels
Am I the only one here whose favorites part of every video is the ending where he goes "this is just a theory....A FOOD THEORY". I don't know why but I could listen to that over 100 times in a row and not be tired of it
I remember the time my dad created a pink gravy for us back when I was still in elementary (forgot the exact year). I'm 22 now and I only tasted that one once... Wish me and my brother knew how he did it back then .-.
it's amazing that tiktok can make a pink fluid into some super famed sauce known all across america now
"Who would not like ranch?"
Looked it up before, it is basically an unearthly concoction of every single food allergy and intolerance I have.
I don’t like ranch
@ReZisT Lust My taste directly identifies yoghurt with vomiting, so no. I know the flavour of vomit is more appreciated in the US, but still no.
@David Ray is that spirit stallion cimrron 🤔
@Stick🤓 Ruining Bacon sounds good?
It's so good when it's a family theory! Maybe someday we'll have the whole family involved.
I think we should donate more money to Matt-Pat so he can afford that second sock he always wanted.
The most disturbing fact about this episode isn’t the Pink Sauce. It’s that MatPat only wears one sock on one foot.
The end of the video was SO wholesome. They just make each other laugh and viewers cant help but smile, too. My husband and I have a love like that and I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope everyone can find their person and share this kind of love ❤️
Never thought I'd see Matpat jump/shake it? On a vent, 10/10 for comedic genius!
Unrelated, I LOVE Oli's art on the fridge. You guys are a wholesome family every time I see you all on screen. I love it!
@Lawrence Ellerbe i mean, if that’s true, then maybe Oli’s art is the word DAD ❤️. Regardless, Truly a beautiful family
@So this is how usernames work. lamo, well, the show isn't perfect, but I love it! I hope you enjoy it too!
@Shala I got into steven universe this year, like almost 5 years after it was finished
@So this is how usernames work. awww that's awesome! I was super into SU when it was running. I'm thinking about binging the show sometime.
@Shala steven universe actually use to be my special interest, my favouite song is Other Friends
Loved your video about this crazy pink sauce drama! props to entrepreneurs everywhere around the world. Though we always learn and improve from experience there you be a min. required standard to start a business and this girl most definitely skipped Business 101....
Check out Anne from How to Cool That. She’s a professional chef who goes over these things and confirms and debunks all of these issues. Debunks include the emulsification, the risk of botulism, and the colorants, as well as expiry dates etc. worth reading and I think that this food theory video may need to be revised.
@Atomic sorry yeah forgot to mention
Yes. All hail Ann reardon
Not just a chef, also a food scientist.
UPDATE: A more reputable company took over the production of the pink sauce and the safer version is being sold at Walmart stores now. Also, if you're going to make a food product for the masses, being secretive with the recipe is a sure way to get sued for not listing potential food allergens. IJS.
