Pokimane Faces Backlash Over Similar Cookie Product
Pokimane’s new cookie brand is facing a backlash as fans have uncovered a strikingly similar product that was sold at Costco. Controversy surrounding the product sparked almost immediately as social media users quickly questioned the snacks’ origin.
More social media users are also speaking up against the product, with one highlighting the now-higher price by weight, stating, “Pokimane’s new product is apparently just a rebranded ‘Toatzy midnight mini cookie’ which she sells for three times the price. The only difference between the cookies is vitamin D3. $28 vs $9.99 for 400g. Scam?”
