It’s not often the phrases “10-year-old” and “successful entrepreneur” are used in the same sentence, but Alina Morse is all about breaking the rules. The native of Wolverine Lake, Michigan, is the founder of Zollipops, a feat that has named her among CNBC’s “8 Young Entrepreneurs Making Serious Money.”
Morse didn’t go into the venture to make money, she was just looking to find healthier lollipops.
The result was Zollipops, a lollipop made with natural flavors and colors, and healthy sugar alternatives that the company says, “neutralize acid and help reduce the risk of tooth decay, and future development of cavities.”
Although Zollipops has now gone international and Alina Morse was recently invited to ISM in Germany, the largest candy show in the world, she remains a 10-year-old at a public elementary school.
She was thrilled to be invited to the White House in 2015 for the annual Easter Egg Roll and hopes to go back again this year. She also loves to talk about having fun with her family in the Midwest.
