One fan spotted a US store selling their own festive take on Veronica's fave new designer drug.

This Christmas, fans of Riverdale have a brand new way to celebrate - by chewing on some good old-fashioned 'Jingle Jangle'. Sort of.

Vulture reports that Trader Joe's have introduced a seasonal product with the same name as the drug taking over the current season of The CW show.

But instead of pixie stix that get teenagers high while they wait to be murdered by The Black Hood, this version consists of "organic mini pretzels covered with milk chocolate, dark chocolate covered caramel popcorn, dark chocolate covered broken Joe-Joe's, milk chocolate gems, and milk and dark chocolate mini peanut butter cups." Sounds way better tbh.

However, due to the confusion, the store has now released a brief statement, just in case you Archie fans out there get overexcited:

"Trader Joe’s Jingle Jangle was introduced years ago. It’s just a fun name that plays off of sleigh bells referenced in Christmas carols, since it is a holiday item. It’s also a fun way to describe the sound customers might hear when they give the tin can a shake. Safe to say it has nothing to do with a fake drug distributed to teens in pixie sticks on a television show?” 

Problem solved.

So, why not grab some of this delicious sounding goodness before your next viewing party. Just make sure you don't get killed off in the process - we all know how disorganised the sherrif is!
