An eight-grader from Walled Lake has been named by Success Magazine, to it's "Thirty Under 30" list, for her invention Zollipops, a natural, vegan, lollipop (and now, other products) that's not bad for your teeth. This honor is the latest to be heaped on Alina Morse. As the story goes, when she was seven, she asked her father why there wasn't a lollipop that wasn't bad for your teeth?

In the release regarding the Success honor, its says Morse, "while researching ways to create healthy candy she could have all the time, ....discovered that childhood tooth decay was the greatest epidemic facing Kids... After learning how to make candy by watching YouTube Videos, she invented Zollipops®, the clean teen lollipops, and hit shelves in 2014 at age nine."

The idea of a healthy, natural, vegan, tooth-friendly candy came to Kidpreneur Alina Morse when she was seven years old. Now Zollipops, ZaffiTaffy and ZolliDrops are a best-selling healthy candy found at retailers everywhere.- Zollipops website

That list of retailers reads like a who's who of the most popular retailers in America. The  Zolli Candy line is being sold at Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, online at Amazon, and many others.
