SANTA ANA, CA – It might be found in a bakery, but it’s not supposed to get you baked. We’re talking about “king cake”. A bread-like dessert traditionally eaten by some on January 6, or Three Kings Day. Most have colorful sugar sprinkled on top, as well as a little plastic baby Jesus inside for good luck.

But some folks living in Orange County California might’ve thought they were really seeing their maker while biting into this holiday treat, after Santa Ana cops claim some cakes were spiked with a synthetic drug, causing those people to trip their heads off.

Health officials closed Cholula’s Bakery after about 40 people claiming to have eaten their King Cake, came down with heavy hallucinations and out-of-body experiences. Preliminary lab results from samples showed a presence of an unknown drug inside the king cakes.

All the people who got sick are expected to make a full recovery, but the bakery will remain closed during this criminal investigation. A bad way to end the holiday season. But no matter how you slice it, this story of drug-laced baked goods, takes the cake.
