But tests revealed that capsules full of pink "MDMA" powder was actually a load of crushed up Tagada sweets, the strawberry-flavoured treats made by Haribo and named after a popular fairground ride.

The gendarmes were certainly put in a spin when they found out the "pills" were fake, especially after they'd posted an image of baggies stuffed full of bright pink disco biscuits.
