LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nothing says summer like sunshine, lime and an ice-cold light cerveza. Sugarfina, the luxury candy boutique for grown-ups, has partnered with Corona Light, the No. 1 imported light beer in America, to create a new collection of candies inspired by the taste of Corona Light.

“This is our first beer collaboration, and it was a must to partner with Corona Light,” said Sugarfina co-founders Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick. “Corona Light topped our loyal fans’ list as the ‘sexiest beer,’ so we couldn’t think of a better inspiration than The Light Cerveza combined with a zesty lime essence to create delicious candies perfect for summertime.”

The Sugarfina + Corona Light limited-edition collection launches online April 23 and in-store May 1. This fresh summer collection features two delicious candies inspired by Corona Light’s carefree, easygoing vibe. “But First, Cerveza” is a crisp and refreshing Corona Light-flavored bottle-shaped gummy that will lighten up any day or night. The perfect complement to a refreshing beer, “Here for a Good Lime” is a zesty lime slice gummy that will transport your taste buds to a beach paradise.

The candies are packaged in Sugarfina’s signature Candy Cubes™. Flavors are sold individually and as part of the Sugarfina + Corona Light Candy Bento Box®, which features both candies in a specially-designed gift box with a custom lime-shaped chrome bottle opener. The perfect hostess gift for your Cinco De Mayo party or summertime soiree!

“We’ve had so much fun collaborating with Sugarfina and brewing up our new gummy candy collection ready just in time for summer with The Light Cerveza®,” said John Alvarado, vice president of marketing for Corona Light. “Sugarfina has redefined candy for grown-ups - offering the perfect combination of playfulness, great taste and style. Corona Light is thrilled to join the party as the first beer brand collection.”

The limited-edition collection will be available online at www.sugarfina.com, Nordstrom, other fine retailers, and Sugarfina boutiques across the United States.
