Local TV News Obsessed With Candy Epidemic (VIDEO)

Most local TV news should be comedy but sadly is not. The the CBS affiliate in Birmingham, AL was not amused by a product I can vouch for as amazingly tasty: craque. It's a candy that is named for its addictive quality and packaged to look like its namesake. People are pissed.

See for yourselves:



Incredible. This product is a threat to white kids in swings. I guess there's nothing else for the media in Birmingham to cover. Nope, nothing at all.

Oh, also this north Florida news station appears to have run the exact same story.
