December 10, 2018, 51:42

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?” 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, organic, smart and yummy candy. Alina became known as the “Lollipop Girl,” a true kidpreneur!
