Pokimane has recently been trending on the internet after she launched her brand of cookies, Myna Snacks. However, it appears that the cookie company has been surrounded by controversy since it launched. Initially, many internet users accused her of rebranding an already-available snack. Pokimane soon refuted these rumours and said she had started a new company.

It seems that she is now facing backlash from consumers, saying that the prices of these cookies are too high. Pokimane clarified that a bundle costing $28 contains four packs of Myna Snacks, each costing $7. This did not seem to satisfy the critics, though.

Pokimane already makes a ton of money through her existing endeavours. It seems that she now wants to enter the business world. YouTubers and streamers owning business is nothing new. Streamers like Valkyrie and Amouranth own a beauty line business that makes them quite a money. KSI and Logan Paul also co-own an energy drink bottle called Prime that recently sold its one-billionth bottle.

Pokimane bashes fan for criticising her cookies

The social media star was streaming live on November 19th, 2023, when she responded to the controversy regarding her cookie company, Myna Snacks. She said that her “brain went boom” when she saw that people were upset with the pricing structure of her company. She additionally claimed that the $7 for a single pack of cookies was justified.

Additionally, Pokimane added that people were unable to do the math on the $28 packet because they were idiots. If they still found the packet too expensive, she asked them to say that they were “broke boys straightforwardly.” She also commented about people paying $8 for Twitter Blue, which essentially gave you pixels in return.

“I’ve got to say this one last time – it makes my brain go boom when people are like, ‘Oh, my god! $28 for cookies?!’ It’s four bags. That’s $7 a pack. I know math is hard when you’re an idiot. But, if you’re a broke boy, just say so.”

Pokimane claims that her cookies are unique because they are fortified with Vitamin D, and hence, justify the extra price. She said that she started her company because she was unable to find a healthy snack that tasted good. Additionally, she claimed that her cookies are made from real, non-GMO ingredients with added Vitamin D.
