“I’ve always had a sweet tooth. And I am not exaggerating one bit. My earliest memory of candy is being a little girl back in Russia and asking my parents for a lollipop after a good practice on the tennis court. It was that little treat I looked forward to. And here I am many years later hoping to get a sweet treat after a good practice,” says tennis star Maria Sharapova.

When asked about how she put it all together, Sharapovas commented: “when the name Sugarpova came about and I put the two together, I realized how much fun this could be. I have been a part of many projects, collections, collaborations, shoots, but at the end of the day I was always just that… a little part of it. So I put my thinking hat on and realized I wanted to start something on my own. Something that could bring the fun and passion of gummy candies to life and can be my own little project from start to finish.”

Sugarpova is a premium candy line that reflects the fun, fashionable, sweet side of Maria Sharapova. She created her own candy business to offer an accessible bit of luxury, interpreting classic candies in her own signature style. A portion of sales from the Sugarpova collection will be donated to the Maria Sharapova Foundation, furthering her ongoing dedication to a charitable cause close to her heart.
