Getting our sugar fix just got a whole lot cooler thanks to this Nintendo-themed candy set from Sugarfina.
The LA-based candy company, known for their rose gummy bears and tequila-flavored treats (produced in conjunction with George Clooney’s tequila brand, Casamigos) has dreamed up another solid collaboration, this time with Nintendo.
The new collaboration gets you one of Sugarfina’s signature “bento boxes,” with three different Super Mario Bros.-inspired treats inside. This set gets you pineapple star gummies, milk chocolate “pearls,” and cherry-flavored, mushroom-shaped gummies. It’s all housed inside a throwback Nintendo console box.
Want something even more unique? Nintendo fans can head to Sugarfina.com right now to create their own candy bento box. Choose from three Nintendo “candy cubes” and fill ’em with your choice of candy, from the selections mentioned above, to Luigi green mushroom gummies, Princess Peach pearls and Bowser chocolate eggs.
Created exclusively in partnership with Nintendo, it all comes in a limited-edition, collector’s edition gift box that plays the Super Mario Bros. theme song when opened. Printed inside the box is the iconic end-of-level castle scene, as well as a drawer that pulls out to reveal an underground world and the three mini boxes of candy.
A great gift for birthdays, bachelor parties, groomsmen, co-workers or just because, this set is almost too good to eat. Pick up a box or two to bring to your next event or special occasion to really 1-UP the rest of the crowd (Nintendo joke… Google it). Our suggestion: share the candy with your colleagues and friends, then save the collectible box for a fun desk display piece, or use it — and the drawer — to store your notes, mail and accessories.
Whether you’re a video game fan, a lover of 90s nostalgia, or just looking for a cool, unexpected gift idea, the Sugarfina Super Mario Bros. candy box is a solid bet. You (still) might not be able to beat Bowser, but show up with a box of these and you’re a guaranteed winner.
