ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (CNN) -- The owner of an Albuquerque candy shop is trying to capitalize on the popularity of the AMC show "Breaking Bad," which is set in the city.

In the show, a chemistry teacher becomes a crystal meth dealer.

Debbie Hall, known as the Candy Lady, decided to become a dealer of her own kind. She's selling meth-inspired candy. It's just crushed up colored rock candy. But she says tourists are eating it up.

"Crystal meth, yeah, which isn't the best thing in the world, it's not the best thing to replicate. We've gone through probably several hundred bags."

Each bag of the candy costs a dollar.
