Bobby Parrish, the host of FlavCity on TikTok and YouTube, is facing criticism for allegedly promoting products in which he has a financial interest, thus deceiving his viewers. Fellow TikToker Liam @theplantsant accused Parrish of inconsistency in his product recommendations, suggesting Parrish's endorsements are influenced by his financial gains. Liam's critique highlighted a specific instance where Parrish recommended Kiki Milk, which contains 4g of added sugars, despite previously advising against added sugars in nut milks. This contradiction has led to skepticism about the genuineness of "Bobby-approved" products.

Parrish, who started his YouTube channel FlavCity with Bobby Parrish in February 2013, has grown a significant following, with over 4 million YouTube subscribers and 1.2 million TikTok followers. His content primarily focuses on meal prep and cooking tips. Despite his online popularity, Parrish's educational background and qualifications in nutrition have been called into question, especially after TikToker Rob Lapham (the Health Viking) claimed Parrish has partnerships or investments in the products he endorses. Additionally, Liam criticized Parrish for providing potentially harmful advice, such as preferring butter over sunflower oil for baking, without proper nutritional expertise.
