A master candy maker was arrested along with eight other people as part of a big drug sting involving chocolates in the shape of the Barcelona shield.
But what do candy and drugs have in common? A whole lot:

The national police of Spain nabbed the makers of these treats in a an operation to take down a drug ring in Alicante and Valencia region. Not only did the bust find gourmet chocolates filled with weed and hallucinogenic mushrooms, but lots of cash, speed and cocaine as well. That’s quite the haul.
So, if you’re in Spain looking for Barca chocolates filled with drugs, you’re out of luck.
