''We supplied the show when it first started,'' said Hall, who buys the raw candy from a wholesale dealer before retooling it. ''It's just rock candy with blue dye and it looks like the real thing.''

Always wondered. Cool.

A new doughnut shop on the city's northeast section, the Rebel Donut, is selling ''Blue Sky Breaking Bad'' doughnuts, fully equipped with blue sugar rock sprinkles on top of a vanilla-iced caked doughnut. The two-month old store has been selling it since the shop opened and regularly sells out.

Want!

I saw the owner on the local news last night here. I wish I could go word for word on her comment about complaints about the candy. Paraphrased it was basically "It's not supposed to look like meth. Even though it does. What can I do?" I'm not opposed to the candy or businesses here in Albuquerque profitting from BB ties ins in any way. But her 'it doesn't look like meth, even though it does, but what can I do, even though I make it?' response was great.

Still can't top Hippy Sippy, the late '60s candy that looked like pills and came in a plastic syringe. Advertising slogan: "Hippy Sippy says, 'I'll try anything!'"

It's the same sort of irresponsible as alcohol in baby bottles.and companies capitalizing on 'grape drank'. Don't sell to kids.

I bought some of that candy.

Next thing you know, I'm murdering my wife by tipping an ATM on her head. Crazy stuff.

This.

Real meth isn't blue. Even if it was blue, this is candy.

Civilization is circling the drain when a complaint like this draws anything but contempt, scorn, and mockery.

Already bought some for my BB-loving friends from here:

Much fun was had pranking some of them, by putting this in a brown paper bag & leaving it on their desks!

It's bad enough living in a state that some people don't even think is a state without this woman adding to the image of New Mexico as someplace where everyone is wired all the time. Meth might not be as big a problem here as it used to be a few years back, but that's still no excuse to exploit that fact.
 
2012-08-21 11:24:43 AM  
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that she will probably sell more of it, now that some people have a problem with it.

I wish there were more beyond those pics. I would totally eat the shiat out of them, i bet they taste amazing.

That being said, i can see why some people wouldn't want an actual association with Albequeque and Meth, but for what it's worth they seem to be handling it well. At least the guy actually named Walter White wasn't arrested in the city.

Also, delicious donut pictures from Atlanta just because i think you need to homer drool more.

Well the meth in BB is a fictional "super meth" that's more pure and doesn't require Sudafed or Robitussin or whatever the fark over the counter medication they ID you for now.

Is there a large scale image of NM as being a wired state? Not sarcasm, curious question. I know it's as bad here as anywhere else, but it is seen as being beyond the norm? I think most states these days can point to a meth capital within it's borders and a drastic meth problem. While I think the cash grab from the candy lady is tacky, I see her as exploiting the show more than a NM meth connection.

I'm buying for personal and for shipping to friends/family this weekend. I want fresh green chile on my food for the first weekend of college football. Fall is sweet in New Mexico!

When I first heard of BB my reaction was, "You've got to be farking kidding me!" Never watched it. Why is it so popular?

If my kid came home with a bag of "meth candy" I would hit the roof. Kids play pretend games with stuff like this, and that leads to curiosity I do not want him to satisfy. Not to mention the Gestapo at school. I don't like meetings and expulsions.

It's just a well written, intense show.
As far as "meth candy", it's just rock candy: crystallized sugar.
Beware: sugar looks like cocaine!

Baby bottles are how I used to get my Kahlua for coffee into baseball games. "Oh this? Just some formula for the young'un." Also, seven plastic baby bottles full of Bacardi 151 rubberbanded together makes a "cluster bomb" suitable for a week-long backpack trip. They don't leak, and they even have markings on the side so you can share evenly.
