Lolleez fills niche sore throat need with kid friendly solution
WASHINGTON, Conn. — Lolleez on Tuesday announced the launch of a new line of throat soothing lollipops for kids that capitalizes on the current "cleaner ingredient" trend with Certified Organic ingredients and alleviates a risk of choking associated with lozenges and cough drops.
"Few ailments cause overall unhappiness to both kids and parents like a sore throat," stated Melissa Evans, Lolleez founder. "There is nothing worse than watching your child suffer, so I'm really excited to be able to offer an organic and worry-free throat remedy that can help soothe both physical (child) and emotional (parent) pain, with the launch of Lolleez."
Lolleez are made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients such as organic honey and natural fruit pectin. They are also non-GMO as well as gluten, dairy and nut free. In addition, Lolleez is flat and on a stick versus a round ball, which is a potential choking hazard.
Lolleez will be available in three kid-friendly flavors: watermelon, strawberry and orange mango. After surveying hundreds of kids, Lolleez founders determined that traditional flavors like cherry and grape have a negative association that is tied to medicines.
Lolleez is available through Amazon and at CVS and Stop & Shop and soon-to-be Babies 'R' Us. Lolleez come in packs of 15 pops for a suggested retail price of $6.99.
