Alina Morse is nine months away from driver’s training and already a candy mogul. Alina Morse, 14, just recently topped the 25,000 stores selling her candy, Zolli Candy, plus international sales in China, Korea, France, the UK and more. Morse has created a monster of a product — a sucker that changes the PH level in your mouth, instead of rotting your teeth and profits fund Million Smiles, a charity initiative that promotes oral health in schools.
A truly remarkable individual! Alina Morse, (who just turned 14!) has created a mini candy empire with her inspired and innovative candy company “Zollipops”. Coming up with the idea for a “better candy” at the age of 7 she worked with her parents to make this passion come to life. Now, with a footprint of 25000 stores including Walgreens and Target, she has a tasty reach on the healthy-candy market. This and more is why Alina Morse is our MVPP of the day.
At 13 years of age, Alina Morse is the chief executive of a multimillion-dollar candy company, Zollipops. Alina and her father Tom Morse visited Marketplace’s Los Angeles studios to talk about how the company got started, and then became a father-daughter duo.
