Chipotle releases real-life cilantro soap after joking about it earlier this year

The 4-ounce bar of Cilantro Soap costs $8

Cilantro may taste like soap to some people, but now there’s a soap that’s made from the actual herb. 

On Thursday, Chipotle released Cilantro Soap, which fans can buy on the Chipotle Goods merchandise website.

Chipotle decided to create the real-life soap after the restaurant chain posted a picture of a fake Cilantro Soap package on Instagram in August this year.

The picture was one of several social media posts the restaurant chain has posted in recent years referencing the controversial herb, which is an ingredient in Chipotle’s brown and white rice options as well as other menu items.
