A while ago, we wrote about Alina Morse, the candy prodigy that released her own line of healthy lollipops under her brand Zolli Candy. The Wolverine Lake native launched her candy company in 2014, when she was only 9 years old. Her candy is sold online and in about 25,000 stores around the globe. In 2018, her sales totaled US $6 million. The success of Zolli Candy made her the youngest person ever to be on the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine.

Morse’s ambition has now led her to expand her sugar-free candy line to Meijer Stores in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

The young entrepreneur is clearly benefiting from the push for healthier, organic snacking options. Her line of lollipops, hard candy and taffy were designed to help clean teeth as an alternate to traditional candy. Zolli makes sure to list ingredients clearly under each product so that consumers know exactly what they are ingesting.

Meijer is a supermarket company popular throughout the mid-west. Morse now gets to see her candy line in the same supermarkets that she grew up visiting.
