Sugarfina’s New Coffee-Infused Gummy Bears Contain One Shot of Espresso Per Serving (!)
Candy for breakfast just became way more acceptable. Luxury candy brand Sugarfina has teamed up with Los Angeles–based coffee company Alfred to create the first ever coffee-infused, caffeinated gummy bear (oh, yes).
No stranger to big-name collaborations, Sugarfina has previously given our cocktail hour a major sugar rush with Tito’s Vodka chocolates, Corona-inspired sweets and rosé-infused gummies. Now, they’re tackling our favorite morning beverage head-on. The new collection includes three flavors: Cold Brew (a classic), Bourbon Cold Brew (yee-haw) and Iced Vanilla Latte (hold the foam). According to the brand’s press release, they’re “made with real coffee and have 60 milligrams of caffeine per serving.” That’s equivalent to one shot of espresso, people.
These buzzy bears are now available in stores and online at Sugarfina and Alfred. And in true Sugarfina fashion, the packaging is beyond adorable. Pick up a 3.5-ounce mini coffee cup (or two) of your favorite flavor for $7 or grab a 12-ounce bag of beans er, bears to share with the office for $14. Really feeling this candy-coffee lifestyle? You can also get your caffeine fix on-the-go with a “But First, Coffee” tumbler filled with cold brew or iced vanilla latte gummies for $25.
Finally, an excuse to satisfy our sweet tooth while getting our buzz on.
