If you never quite outgrew your sweet tooth, but your palate developed to appreciate more refined tastes, then this candy company is sure to appeal to you. Marketing themselves as a “gourmet candy boutique for grown-ups,” Sugarfina specializes in unique treats made by skilled artisans from around the world. The founders of this LA-based company have tasted a wide range of sweets from all sorts of different cultures, curating and perfecting their favourites, so that the company has an international feel. From Kyoto blossoms (traditional sugar flowers imported from Japan), to sea salt licorice in the shape of aquatic creatures (imported from Holland) to maple bourbon caramels (a clearly North American concoction), Sugarfina has a candy to suit everyone.
Of course, Sugarfina is perhaps most well known for their champagne gummy bears. They have in the past offered delicate gummy bears infused with Dom Pérignon and dusted with flakes of 24 karat gold. For more alcoholic and metallic goodness, you can also buy gold and champagne marshmallows from this luxury candy company. If you can’t choose just one sweet, the company allows you to design your own custom bento box featuring a selection of colorful candies. For the particularly dedicated candy fans out there, Sugarfina has a 32 piece bento box starting at $248.
