Good morning. I'm A Martinez.

A British bakery called Get Baked has gotten in trouble for using illegal substances in their offerings. But despite what the name may suggest, we're not talking about special brownies here.

Owner Rich Myers says British sprinkles are rubbish, so you can sprinkle that a win for America.
