Yep, champagne gummy bears! Despite my recent dietary efforts, I would splurge without hesitation on this collaboration between Sugarfina and Jonathan Adler. And wouldn’t these cute boxes make the perfect Mother’s Day gift? My mom is not exactly the champagne-taste type, but I’m certain she would find these candy bento boxes amusing and fun (and delicious!). The three limited-edition boxes were designed and themed by Adler and are each paired with three 3.5 oz. lucite cubes of best-selling Sugarfina confections including:
- “Cocktail Hour” – It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere (I say this a lot)! Champagne Bears are made with Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne, plus “Martini Olive” almonds and spiced rum and cola Cuba Libre gummies.
- “Chic & Sour” – Cult favorite Sugar Lips, citrusy Heavenly Sours and ripe and juicy Peach Bellini.
- “Cocoa A-Go-Go” – Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, shimmery Sugarfina Pearls and playful pastel Fruity Loops.
You can find the boxes exclusively at Sugarfina stores, Neiman Marcus, and Jonathan Adler for $30 each.
If you’re not familiar with Sugarfina, a little history: Sweethearts Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick founded the brand, selling online in 2012 with cocktail candies including Champagne Gummy Bears, Cuba Libre and Peach Bellini dummies. They opened their first retail store in Beverly Hills in 2013. It now has 15 retail locations throughout North America.
