These cold brew gummy bears from Sugarfina and Alfred Coffee are all you need if you have had enough of those sugary coffee drinks filled with syrups and topped with whipped cream.
Everybody loves a good gummy bear and if you are a coffee addict, today is going to be a good day for you! This is thanks to Sugarfina who are collaborating with their LA neighbor Alfred Coffee to create the world's first-ever coffee-infused gummy bears. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? As reported by People.
A good dose of sugar and caffeine is all an adult needs to get going through the day. And these cold brew gummy bears from Sugarfina and Alfred Coffee is all you need if you have had enough of those sugary coffee drinks filled with syrups and topped with whipped cream.
Sugarfina is known for their innovations when it comes to flavored gummy bears (Yes, we are talking about their extensive line of booze-infused gummies and other sugary treats), and this new mash-up has truly got the people talking!
Packed with 60mg of caffeine, it comes in three flavors --Cold-Brew, Bourbon Cold-Brew, and Iced Vanilla Latte. To put that into perspective, it is almost equivalent to one shot of espresso, so it is bound to give you some nice coffee buzz, after snacking on these sweet treats!
If you are from LA, you would know that each of these flavors is inspired by a drink from the famous coffee spot Alfred Coffee—who you might know for their tagline, “But First, Coffee”.
The collaboration was confirmed by Rosie O'Neill, Sugarfina co-founder, and co-CEO. “We’re so excited to partner with our L.A. neighbor Alfred Coffee to create the world’s first-ever coffee-infused gummy bears. With this collaboration, we’re combining two of our favorite pick-me-ups—candy and caffeine—in a delicious and adorable gummy bear collection.”
Founder and CEO of LA-based Alfred Coffee Josh Zad had also expressed his own enthusiasm for the collaboration. In the same press release, he noted: "At Alfred, we always pride ourselves on constantly innovating and staying ahead of both design and beverage trends. So when the opportunity arose to collaborate with our hands-down favorite candy company to deliver everyday Alfred classics in a never-before-seen gummy form it was a no brainer. This is a match made in caffeine-obsessed heaven!”
Now, if you are looking to grab hold of one of these; wait! We have got all the details! The pricing starts at $7 for a 3.5-ounce cup of bears, $14 for a 12-ounce bag, and $25 for a "But First, Coffee Tumbler" filled with 9.5 ounces of Cold Brew Bears. It is available in select retail stores nationwide. However, if you are finding it difficult to spot them at your local stores, you can also order them online from the official Sugarfina and Alfred websites.
Twitter has been loving the new product ever since the caffeine-induced gummy bears hit the headlines.

Sugarfina is no stranger when it comes to improvising and trying out new flavors for the beloved gummy bears. The brand had earlier teamed up with Pressed Juicery to make "Green Juice" candy, which is either the best idea there is, or the worst, depending on your take on green juice.
They had also come up with the Sugarfina Disney candy that took many by surprise! But it is the Sugarfina "Candy For Breakfast" line that became the talk of the town when it hit the shelves. Boy, it was indeed like a childhood dream turning into a reality.
Just devoured an entire bottle of @sugarfina's green juice gummy bears, so I basically met my requirement of fruits and greens for the day.— Bianca Mendez (@BiancaMendezz) May 3, 2017
