It’s scary.”

And the item description attempts to address common concerns regarding the sauce’s composition and safety. The most prevalent worry? Pink Sauce’s varying color palette. “Why does the shade of Pink Sauce vary?” one question read.

The response: “The exact color or shade of Pink will always vary slightly from batch to batch due to the natural variation in color of the dragon fruit and other natural spices used to create Pink Sauce. We do not offer refunds related to the shade of Pink.”
