Maria Sharapova Launches “Sugarpova” Candy (Yum!)Aug 20, 2012 @ 6:00 pm
Maria Sharapova is ready to satisfy your sugar cravings! The tennis champ, who just scored a silver medal for Russia at the London Olympics and is prepping for the upcoming US Open, channeled her inner Willy Wonka and launched a colorful candy line named Sugarpova at Henri Bendel‘s Fifth Avenue flagship today. “I’ve always had a sweet tooth,” Sharapova (in custom David Koma) told InStyle.com. “I’ve been part of many great collaborations and fun collections, but I’ve never owned something, and I wanted to be involved 100%.” The line boasts 12 kinds of candy, from tennis ball-shaped gum balls to sour jelly lips, with cute names like Smitten and Quirky (the latter being her favorite, she told us, for its fun mix of licorice and marshmallow). Shop the sweets for $5 per bag, exclusively at Henri Bendel stores and on henribendel.com.
