Make Yourself...A Junior Entrepreneur
This week we bring you 13-year-old millionaire prodigy Alina Morse—CEO and co-founder of Zollicandy; an all natural, sugar free candy brand that cleans your teeth. Founding her company at 7-years-old , Alina’s determination to offer a product that could truly help others was the driving force that launched her product into the market.
When Alina Morse was seven years old, she went to the bank with her dad and the teller offered her a lollipop. While she really wanted to accept, her parents always told her that candy was terrible for her teeth. So she asked her dad, “Why can’t we make a lollipop that’s actually good for your teeth?” And in that moment the idea for Zollipops® was born! Together, Alina and her dad set off to make delicious lollipop treats that were actually good for teeth. In 2014, the first Zollipops treat hit the shelves: a vegan, natural, smart and yummy candy. Alina became known as the “Lollipop Girl,” a true Kidpreneur!
Alina’s little sister, Lola, came up with the name Zollipops when she tried to pronounce one of the teeth-friendly ingredients. Alina was looking for a catchy name, Lola said “Zollipops,” and the rest is history!
