For those of you who love candy but hate the dentist, this product is for you. Confronted with the same dilemma, Alina Morse was only seven years old when she used $7,500 from her grandparents to design a product and start a company with the help of her father. This product was a lollipop sweetened without the use of sugar, but instead: xylitol, maltitol syrup, beetroot juice and stevia.
Within just a few short years, Alina was selling her product on Amazon and in stores such as Whole Foods. She has pitched her idea on television, and, due to her healthy food initiative, Michelle Obama even invited her to visit The White House twice and making her candy the only one at the annual Easter Egg Roll.
Alina says that she loves her product, travelling all around the world to share it with others, and watching it “brighten their smiles.”
