Breaking Bad is one of my favorite TV shows and so I was both aghast and enthralled to read in today's Gawker blog that there is "Blue Meth" candy, based on the show's famous product, for sale at The Candy Lady shop in Albuquerque (where the show is based and shot). Even cooler, the show first approached Debbie Hall, the shop owner, to create a candy version of the blue drug that has been used as a prop ever since. So this isn't derivative candy- this is the real thing! Walter White is really tossing around bags of rock candy dyed blue on set. And White's cook and supplier is The Candy Lady. Cool!
