New Coke

Free markets at work:

“Narcotics agents in Yolo County say they have arrested six people after confiscating 3 pounds of strawberry- and coconut-flavored cocaine.

Adding a flavor to the addictive stimulant is seen by Yolo County Narcotic Enforcement Team Commander Roy Giorgi as “just another marketing tool.”

When the flavored cocaine is inhaled through the nostrils, users say the flavor can be tasted and smelled.

“They said regular cocaine gives a medicine taste in the back of the throat when snorted,” Giorgi said. “With the flavored, you get a strawberry taste.”

Flavored cocaine costs 40 percent more than regular cocaine.

Added value, increased price.  Duh.
