ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The owner of an Albuquerque candy store is selling a product she’s calling “meth candy” and is playing off the popularity of the hit TV-show “Breaking Bad.”

Debbie Hall, owner of The Candy Lady, said Monday that the blue-colored snack is merely sugar blocks, though it bears a close resemblance to the blue crystal causing havoc on the Albuquerque-based TV drama.

In fact, Hall said she supplied the “meth candy” for the show as props for the drug during previous seasons.

Hall says hasn’t received any complaints.

A spokesman for the New Mexico Human Service Department said although state officials support small businesses, owners need to be aware of the state’s drug epidemic.

Hall drew fire 30 years ago after her “X-rated candy” sparked a protest from an evangelical church.
