People won’t like the surprise that awaits at the center of these Tootsie Roll pops.

Authorities at Mexico City’s international airport discovered Methamphetamine stashed inside a load lollipops destined for Nebraska.

According to the Mexican federal police, each of the lollipops contained a meth capsule inside. Officials said the shipment originated in the drug-producing state of Sinaloa and was headed to the Omaha, Nebraska.

Security officials made the discovery after conducting an X-rayed search of a 9-pound box of candy labelled “Handicrafts and Candy.” A closer inspection revealed circular shadows of capsules placed inside the lollipops.

Mexican officials said on Monday that experts are still conducting tests on the capsules to discern the exact composition and weight of the product.

The drug haul followed the massive bust made by Australian authorities along with Chinese police, who announced the seizure of close to $900 million worth of liquid meth stashed inside bra implants.

The drug confiscation is the largest in that country’s history. Police arrested said four  Chinese nationals from Hong Kong in connection with the massive drug shipment.
