This Ain’t Your Mama’s Rock Candy…

Look closely. It’s candy – the creations of Sweet Saba, the whimsical new line of designer candy by Mayaan Zilberman. Each of her designs represents a memory from her past and bursts with unexpected fusions of flavor. Three of my favorites are the overseas letters, slides, & mixtapes, which together whisk me back to a time long ago when I was studying for a degree in theory & criticism of art. I would spend long nights in the slide library with my best friend memorizing works of art while listening to mixtapes and longing to travel instead. Now we travel often and have seen much of the art we studied, but that time spent in the slide library poring over works of art and sharing our dreams with each other remains one of my favorite experiences. I simply love that Mayaan’s designs can evoke such fond memories in me.
