Rewatching The Walking Dead, I noticed a scene where Daryl goes through Merles drugs and in the bag was Walt aka Heisenberg's blue meth.

From my quick google research, pure meth is never blue an inconsistency in Breaking Bad which means any meth should be shown as its normal colour outside of the Breaking Bad universe.

Out of universe, this is explained that since both shows probably use the same props on the AMC network, however I'm looking for in universe or director/producer comments that give some indication that they could be in the same universe.

blue meth from The Walking Dead

Do you know which episode this scene is from? –  unor Nov 21 '13 at 22:24
I think season 2 episode 2 or 3... –  Jared Nov 22 '13 at 0:36
Its more like a homage to the co-show rather then sharing universe. –  Ankit Sharma Nov 26 '13 at 10:58

Did ‘The Walking Dead’ Cook Up a ‘Breaking Bad’ Reference?

Robert Kirkman, a creator of the “Walking Dead” comics and a producer of the television series, said that the inclusion of the blue meth was indeed "a little Easter egg we were doing for AMC fans"

(The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are both AMC shows)

While there may have been some "Easter eggs" in The Walking Dead linking it to Breaking Bad, the probable supposition has to be that the two universes are not connected. The Walking Dead is a fictional representation of a dystopian post apocalyptic Earth meaning that unless the events of Breaking Bad occurred before the beginning of TWD, then they exist in two very separate universes.
