Zolli Candy was invented by 14-year-old Alina Morse. The line is an all-natural, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and non-GMO candy, and certified sugar-free by Sugarwise.
“I originally came up with the idea when I was 7-years-old and on a trip to the bank with my dad,” said Alina.
The bank teller offered Alina a lollipop and her dad said “You shouldn’t have candy because sugar is terrible for your teeth”, so Alina asked him, “Why can’t we make a healthy lollipop that’s good for my teeth so I can have candy and it wouldn’t be bad for me?”
Alina spent a lot of time researching competitors and online merchandising to see if there was any product like them already on the market… and there wasn’t.
