Maayan Zilberman, is a woman the New York Times descries as, “a lingerie savant turned conceptual confectioner.”
In layman’s terms she’s the creator of Sweet Saba, an “avant-garde” candy company.
The company’s website describes her creations as, “a specialty line of candy objects for adults, with stories both inviting and mysterious. Cast from real items from Maayan’s past, these poignant shapes offer a multi-sensory experience through memory, unexpected flavor, and a sense of humor.”
That includes chunks of crystal candy which cost $20 for four pieces.
Candy mixtapes which are $35 each.
Rolex style candy watch faces will set you back $15.
And a large candy “party crystal” comes in at $75.
According to the New York Times, Zilberman worked with a food technologist, “to develop about 30 flavors, including bubble gum, bacon, whiskey and mother’s milk.”
“It’s mostly just cream,” Zilberman explained of the last one.
Her pop-up shop is currently on the top floor of Fort Gansevoort, in the Meatpacking District, and will remain there until February 22, 2016.
