Taste the Rainbow, Spread the Rainbow

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Two servings of mushroom soup containing SCP-XXXX are to be contained in Site-34's cold storage wing. Once a week, these servings are to be prepared and consumed by Class D personnel, who are then instructed to replicate the dish, in order to prevent spoilage and loss of the SCP-XXXX sample.

If any food or drink items containing SCP-XXXX are to be quarantined for two weeks, at which point the remains may be disposed of at the discretion of containment staff. All efforts are to be made to ensure that dishes that may carry SCP-XXXX are found and contained.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a gustatory memetic hazard1, that modifies the flavour and appearance of any food or drink item that it is introduced to. Any food or drink item that contains SCP-XXXX is described as tasting "cold" and "bright" variously, and is theorised to be a part of a sixth flavour group.2 Individuals who taste SCP-XXXX (now classified as SCP-XXXX-1) are capable of reproducing the flavour, regardless of previous culinary ability, or ingredients used.

Dishes containing SCP-XXXX take on a light-diffracting property, often displaying various sections of the visible spectrum along their surfaces. These dishes also contain a minor visual cognitohazard which increases the saturation of colours from the perspective of the observer. This does not take effect over recordings, or when dishes containing SCP-XXXX have left visual range.

SCP-XXXX was created by the Ambrose Restaurant (GoI-116) in order to diversify the flavours offered to patrons.3 Since it's initial discovery during the raid by Mobile Task Force Lambda-14 ("One Star Reviewers") on 08/11/20██ of a Location of Interest operated by Ambrose, there have been █ incidents involving the appearance of SCP-XXXX.
