Students at a women-only college in Cambridge, England, have been smuggling banned contraband into the campus library.

The forbidden goods? Delicious, stress-relieving chocolate bars to help take the edge off during exams.

According to the school's Facebook page, a student discovered a Crunchie and a Dairy Milk bar inside a hollowed out copy of The Oxford Companion to English Literature at Newnham College Library. The book is by Margaret Drabble, a Newnham alum.

The contraband was accompanied by a note that reads: "Dear student, congratulations on finding this book. Take your prize and return with one for the next person."

It turns out this could be a Newnham tradition.

"We didn't think anything like this had ever happened before, but when we wrote about it on Facebook we had quite a few responses from alumna," college spokeswoman Jo Tynan told Cambridge News. One former student said she found a pack of candy in a book and another found a love letter.
