A company in Peru is developing a sweet made out of a mixture of caramel and cocaine.

The company, from Carmen Alto, says the Cocamel will help people relax from the stress of daily life.

Firm boss Rosario Lazo says, “The Cocamel is delicious and can be used to relax people from daily tensions.

“It will surprise everyone and give people more than a smile.”

The company has been working on the sweet for six months, and still has to get Department of Health approval before it is put on sale.

Mrs Lazo added: “I want to demystify the use of cocaine leaves. In many parts people chew or make tea with them to fight altitude sickness.”
