This Cold Brew Gummy Bear Is The New Espresso Shot

It is now socially acceptable to scarf down gummy bears as an adult, all for the sake of caffeine.

Since our caffeine-addicted generation seeks more ways to be satisfied with coffee choices, companies are stepping up their game and are crafting innovations. If coffee IVs were a thing, we’re pretty sure a lot of people will be eager to invest in them. We live in a world where plain black coffee just won’t cut it anymore. Luxury candy company, Sugarfina, collaborated with Alfred coffee to create Cold Brew Gummy Bears, a unique way to get your daily coffee-buzz.

While coffee-flavored treats are readily available, these bears are not playing games. They’ll give you that buzz you so desperately need. The idea behind it is a double whammy⁠—caffeine and sugar. A single serving of the bears is equivalent to about 60 milligrams of caffeine, which is almost the same as a shot of espresso.

Founder of Sugarfina, Rosie O’Neill, announced, “With this collaboration, we’re combining two of our favorite pick-me-ups – candy and caffeine.”

The caffeinated bears come in three flavors namely, Classic Cold Brew, a strong and rich combination for those who like it cold and bold; Iced Vanilla Latte, something sweet and sassy for a hot summer day; and Bourbon Cold Brew, with a sweet bourbon flavor. It is available in both adorable Mini Cups and coffee bags.

If you want to try these gummy bears, it comes in three cups for $21.00 (P1,095), and you can choose any flavors to mix and match, or get three of the same kind. A bag costs $14.00 (P730); it has as much caffeine as a cup of black coffee or two shots of espresso. You may order them in their website here.
