^^the cutest Mother’s Day gift! sugarpova candysugarpova candy sugarpova chocolate sugarpovasugarpova candy

You guys! I was super excited the other day when I received a package in the mail and it was full of sweets from Maria Sharapova’s candy line. I have been wanting to try Sugarpova for sooo long. As a tennis player myself, I grew up watching Maria Sharapova, following her fashion (on and off the court) and was so excited when she created her own candy line! I think the packaging/branding is my favorite part because it’s so dang cute (and the candy, of course).

I tried five of her gummy candies – Spooky (sour), Splashy, Smitten (sour), Quirky, and Flirty. Aren’t the names adorable? My favorite is definitely Smitten (sour) – I love a good sour candy and these are perfectly sweet and sour (and cute to look at!). I also love the tasty lips in the Flirty pack and the Quirky candies were like a licorice with filling – yum! Spooky (sour) actually didn’t have much of a sour flavor to them but they were still delicious.

I also tried all four of her gourmet chocolate bars – Milk Chocolate, Milk Chocolate with Strawberry, Dark Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate with Coconut. The packaging of these chocolate bars is so beautiful that I didn’t want to break them open. To be honest, I am not a big dark chocolate fan so those weren’t my favorite, but if you like dark chocolate they are probably amazing! The milk chocolate, on the other hand, was delicious. The chocolate is made by a gourmet chocolate company based out of Poland and made exclusively for Sugarpova for a limited time only, so get your hands on a bar before they’re gone! Plus, what’s better than a chocolate dipped strawberry? They also make a fun gift idea for Mother’s Day coming up!

Hope you all have a lovely week!

 

CRACKED CANDY

I never understood why because I always brushed my teeth, but apparently I ate too much candy or something! When I heard about a new candy that is actually good for your teeth and helps REDUCE cavities, I thought it might be a joke… I was so excited when I got the mail this past week and found a box of Cracked Candy to try!

Yes, Cracked Candy is actually GOOD for your teeth! Why? It’s made with xylitol (I had heard that word before but never really knew what xylitol was), which is a natural sweetener found in trees, fruits, vegetables and in our bodies. Studies have shown that daily doses of xylitol help reduce plaque, cavities and even improve tooth enamel. Crazy, right?! Oh, it’s also vegan, diabetic friendly and safe for kids! It’s a win for everyone.

I tried each of the four flavors of Cracked Candy, including mellow orange, peppermint, lemon and cinnamon. I would say the lemon flavor was probably my favorite but they all have a fresh flavor to them! The candy comes in artistic tins and is literally cracked in pieces, so none are exactly the same. The tins are the perfect size to fit in your purse, I love it! I love how Flora, the founder of Cracked Candy, says ““it’s a given that candy makes you happy. I just wanted to make candy healthy.” Read more about her story here and try some Cracked Candy for yourself. 🙂
