Maria Sharapova launches Sugarpova at Henri Bendel

Today, I joined #1 tennis superstar, Maria Sharpova at Henri Bendel’s for the  launch of her new gummy line, Sugarpova. Yup, I’m talking candy — and a whole lot of it — 13 different bags to be exact in fun, fashionably shapes and colors including:

Regular Gummies
1 Chic: High Heels, Purses, Sunglasses
2 Flirty: Lips
3 Silly: Worms
4 Sassy: Lemons, Bananas, Strawberries, Cherries, Grapes
5 Splashy: Aquatic Life
6 Cheeky: Bears

Sour Gummies
7 Flirty: Lips, Hearts, Stars
8 Silly: Worms
9 Sassy: Lemons, Bananas, Strawberries, Cherries, Grapes
10 Spooky: Spiders
11 Smitten: Rainbow strips

And also…
12 Sporty: Tennis Gum Balls
13 Quirky: Licorice Revolvers

“Creating Sugarpova has been an exciting labor of love,” says Sharapova. “My tennis and business schedules keep me traveling worldwide, and I confess to having a sweet tooth that knows what it wants! When I didn’t find it in the marketplace, I decided to create the type of candy that girls like me crave.”

“Maria is the ultimate Bendel girl and we’re thrilled to be the first to unveil the Sugarpova line. We have devoted our prime atrium and all of our 5th Avenue windows to Marie and her fabulous candy,” said Chris Fiore, President of Henri Bendel. Take a look!

I grabbed a bag of the “Silly” regular gummies and had Maria autograph it for an oh-so-silly 12yr old fan of hers.

A tennis player with a sweet-tooth, I like it!
