We live in a time when gummy bears are more than just candy. They can be everything from hair growth supplements to methods of delivering a host of adult flavors.
LA-based gummy bear powerhouse, Sugarfina, is in the business of bringing more sophisticated flavors to candy. (See their extensive line of booze-infused gummies and other sugary treats.) And, just in time for iced coffee season, caffeine is the obvious next step. In collaboration with Alfred Coffee (a Los Angeles-based coffee shop that you’ve probably seen on Instagram), Sugarfina is launching a new gummy bear flavor, the first of its kind in fact.
Meet the world’s first coffee-infused gummy bears. A single serving of any of the three flavors – Cold-Brew, Bourbon Cold-Brew, and Iced Vanilla Latte – is packed with 60mg of caffeine.
“With this collaboration, we’re combining two of our favorite pick-me-ups – candy and caffeine,” said Sugarfina founder Rosie O’Niell in a press release. Yet, to call these trendy gummy bears "candy" almost doesn’t do them justice.
