Time to take out those cocktail glasses because Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner.
Cinco de Mayo is a popular celebration of Mexican culture and heritage in the United States, which is held every fifth of May. It is a day of parades, festive events, mariachi music, and of course, parties. And with both Spring and the festivities in full swing, you can be sure there will be an abundance of fun and refreshing cocktails such as tequila and margarita to satisfy your liquor cravings all day round.
And just when you think the celebration can’t get any better, a line of Corona-inspired lime gummies is being introduced in time for Cinco de Mayo by top-selling beer brand Corona and candy artisan Sugarfina.
Corona is one of the top-selling Mexican beer brands in the world since its creation in 1925. Its Corona Extra line was first imported in the US in 1981 and has since become the fastest-selling imported beer in the country.
Beer varieties of Corona include Corona Extra, Corona Light, Corona Familiar, and Corona’s premium spiked refresher, Refresca. Corona is also reportedly releasing a new beer in its line-up this year, the Corona Premier, which will be marketed as the “smoothest, most drinkable Corona”.
Sugarfina, on the other hand, is a fast-growing gourmet candy store marketed for adults. They sell decadent confections, some with alcohol content.
Sugarfina has partnered with famous brands all around the world to market their candies and has recently teamed up with Corona for a new line of non-alcoholic Corona-flavored gummies, the “Sugarfina x Corona Light” collection.
Inspired by the Cinco de Mayo celebrations, it comes in two unique flavors, “But First, Cerveza”, beer shaped candies that tastes like Corona Light, and “Here for a Good Time”, which is zesty and lime-flavored.
