Key Highlights
Despite the launch delay (the product was launched in the market six months later than expected) and the issues around safety (with the risk of kids ingesting pouches), Tide Pods achieved $226m in sales since its launch in February through to November 2012.

The price premium of Tide Pods did not prevent consumers from experimenting with the new product and repeating purchases. The innovation strategy used by the brand - centered around concentrated cleaning power and convenience - was powerful enough to attract consumers independently of price.
