Maria Sharapova may be best known for her tennis talents and marketing campaigns, but now she's going into business for herself, and it sounds pretty sweet. That's because Sharapova is launching a line of gummy candies under the name Sugarpova.
Starting this monday, the new company will offer treats with names such as Flirty, Cheeky and Sporty. The new candies will be in shapes that exemplify their famous creator, like tennis balls and hand bags.
The Candy Connoisseur is planning a big event in New York City to launch the candies, as well as an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. On top of all this Sharapova will be playing the U.S. Open as early as August 27th.
