Leave it to teenagers to take something as wholesome as gummy bears and turn it into booze-soaked mischief.

Using online tutorials, some teens are soaking the candy in vodka for several days and eating it to get a buzz.

It's a big trend in California and so popular that one police department has posted a warning on its Facebook page.

Police say because teens are eating handfuls of candy, they don't know how much alcohol they're ingesting at a time. The teens get really drunk really fast without their parents finding a trace of illicit substances.
