Drug agents in Modesto have made a large bust with an alarming twist. Three men were arrested for selling what authorities say is a new brand of designer cocaine.

According to Modesto police criminals are dealing it to younger people, by making the drug taste, smell, and look like candy.

The fruit flavors include strawberry, lemon, coconut and cinnamon. The drug ring was reportedly being run out of a house where one of the suspects lives with two young children.

Seven pounds of cocaine was found, some of it in a candy jar on the kitchen counter.
