Sugarfina is the epitome of a candy boutique, dissimilar from other local sugar sellers Sweet! and Dylan's Candy Bar. The store, colored almost entirely white, serves as a muted palate to highlight trays of colored candies and Sugarfina's signature turquoise candy bento boxes, which clearly resemble Tiffany & Co. gift boxes. And it's not just about the pretty packaging. This is truly a candy story for adults wherein 40% of the confections sold here can not be found elsewhere in the country. Think ale gummies, Champagne gummy bears, and Greek yogurt gummies. If you are a fan of gummy candy, Sugarfina is an absolute must.
Launched in August 2012 by Rosie O'Neill and boyfriend Josh Resnick as an online candy shop, Sugarfina Beverly Hills marks the now engaged couple's first brick and mortar encompassing 1,400 square feet. Stop by starting tomorrow to sample matcha caramels, marshmallow eggs, Tahitian vanilla malt beans and much much more. Hours of operation run Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday/Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
