Weird Sports Candies: Sugarpova to Muhammad Ali Rice Crispies and Melo Bars

Categories: Obscurity
Sharapova's face and gummy lips.

Maria Sharapova released her newest wave of endorsement this week. Gone are point-and-shoot cameras, fluffy dogs, and fancy European watches. No, no, this time, the London Olympic games silver medalist, beast tennis player, and poster child for fitness, can add candy to her repertoire.

Because that makes all the sense in the world.

So like all great sports fanatics, we here at Short Order did a little digging to find other strangely paired sports-figure-confections. We weren't expecting to find much, but news flash: they actually exist.

Crisp Crunch

We're really hoping that during the time Muhammad Ali's Crisp Crunch "All Natural Ingredients" candy bar was on the market, it had a slogan like, "it packs a punch" or something like that. If you put the Ali Crisp in a ring with a Rice Krispy treat, who do you think would win? (That's a trick question. The Ali Crisp isn't around anymore so the fight wouldn't be fair -- zing!)
