Adorable! But it also caused a powder scare

Two prison inmates in upstate New York decided to literally sweeten up their love letters with a sprinkle of sugar.

One inmate put sugar with his letter, and wrote to his significant other that he is "sweet" on her. The other inmate added lemonade mix, and said he is still "still sweet enough." Aww.

Unfortunately, authorities thought that something else was in the envelopes and called state police and firefighters in. The inmates may even be disciplined, authorities say, but for love's sake, we hope not.
