Sweet Saba is an awesome avant-garde candy shop based out of New York that offers some of the most eye-catching treats! Maayan Zilberman is the mastermind behind the creations, she moved to Canada from Israel as a child and spent ample amounts of time in the kitchen with her grandfather concocting these rock-candy creations. The word ‘saba’ is Hebrew for grandpa, hence where the shop name ‘Sweet Saba’ came from.
While most people believe candy is for children, Maayan created a line specifically aimed at adults. Each piece has a story behind it, and as you can tell many of the pieces may spark nostalgia.
She infuses select candies with a range of nutritional vitamins and get this, 24k gold which is believed to have medicinal qualities. The candies come in a variety of flavours such as champagne, cinnamon, ginger, coconut pineapple and many more!
I am in awe of these candies — it would be ideal for parties or as a super cool gift.
Maayan is not only a candy creator, for the past 15 years she’s designed lingerie for a company she co-founded called, ‘The Lake & Stars.’ Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
