Teeth-cleaning Zollipops now at H-E-B, Meijer


DETROIT, Mich. -- An 11-year-old girl's invention -- teeth cleaning lollipops -- are rapidly expanding distribution across the country.

Zollipops contain erythiritol, xylitol and stevia, all of which are sugar alternatives.

With changes to nutrition labeling requiring disclosure of added sugars in 2018, and only 50g RDI of sugars, the company says Zollipops offer retailers a way to win at shelf and front end, as consumers are made more aware of sugar content, and seek healthier candy eating habits.

"I got the idea when I went to the bank one day with my dad," said Zollipops creator Alina Morse. "The teller asked me if I wanted a sucker. My dad always told me that I should not eat candy, because sugar is terrible for your teeth. So on the car ride home I asked my dad if we could make a healthy sucker that was good for your teeth. I kept asking him, and finally we made the first batch. "

Zollipops are now selling in Costco, Amazon, Meijer, H-E-B, Army & Air Force Exchange, Toys"R"Us, Whole Foods Markets, member pharmacies of the National Community Pharmacists Association and at dentists' offices.
