Alina Morse CEO Zolli

One smart cookie invents Zolli Candy: sugar-free candy packed with delicious flavor!

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 delicious vegan, all-natural, sugar-free candy. Alina became known as the “Lollipop Girl,” a true kidpreneur!

What’s in a name?

Alina’s younger sister, Lola Morse, came up with name Zollipops when she tried to pronounce one of the one of the teeth-friendly ingredients. Alina was looking for a catchy name, Lola said “Zollipops,” and the rest is history! Today, ZolliCandy — Zollipops®, Zolli® Drops, and Zaffi® Taffy — are sold at retailers everywhere and is the best-selling sugar-free, healthy candy in the United States.
