Rose Wine Gummies Are A Thing, But Good Luck Getting Your Hands On Them
By Cooking Panda
While I’m still reeling over the machine that turns booze into edible bubbles, the rest of New York City has already moved on to the next inebriating treat: rose wine-infused gummy bears.
Apparently, a new high-end candy boutique Sugarfina opened its doors on June 29 in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and it boasts a sweeping array of cute, wine- and cocktail-inspired gummy candies.
Sound delicious? Unfortunately, if your answer is “yes,” you can get in line: Sugarfina’s line of “candy for grownups” already has a waitlist of 400+ people who want to taste the store’s two Whispering Angel Rose-infused options.
The two sold-out varieties are the “Rose All Day” gummy bear version, and the “Yes Way Rose” rose-shaped gummy. According to the Sugarfina website, both products sold out in less than 2 hours.
“Sugarfina candies are unlike anything sold anywhere else — 75 percent of our collection is exclusive to Sugarfina and can’t be found anywhere else in the U.S.,” co-owner Rosie O’Neill told DNA Info.
The boutique was already known for its champagne gummy bears, and sells its products by the cube. The luxurious gummies retail at $8.50 a cube (3.9 ounces), or about $34 a pound, if you want to stock up.
Luckily, after selling out of the first run so quickly, Sugarfina’s next batch will have five times as much as the first run did; if you’d like to add your name to the waiting list, be sure to e-mail email@example.com.Booze, candy, gummies, New York, rose flavored gummies, sugarfina
