Want a breakfast with a bang? This may be a little too much.

Police in the US state of Utah are warning people against buying marijuana-filled Pop Tarts.

The Morgan County Sheriff's Office say marijuana-infused gummy bears are also making their way on to shelves from neighbouring Colorado.

Recreational marijuana was legalised in Colorado in November 2012 by a popular vote - making it the first US state to do so.

"It's impossible to tell from looking at them", Morgan County Sheriff's Office says.

"They are legal for sale next door in Colorado and have been making their way here to Utah".

It also cautions consumers that packaging can be deceptive, as shown by the 'Pot Tarts' package.

This is very similar in colour and font to the Pop Tarts breakfast food.

Under law, all products which contain marijuana in Colorado have to display a 'THC' warning symbol.
