Want to Know What Sharks and Grandmas Have in Common?

If they say it can’t be done, leave it to two grandmothers to prove the world wrong. Two women were once told that the FDA approved natural sweetener, xylitol, could not be formed into a hard candy. Low and behold, they had already invented it and now they can show-off their tasty treats to the rest of the world.


The candy is called Ice Chips. The ladies and the Ice Chips with Xylitol were even featured on the hit ABC show, Shark Tank. The show allows everyday people the opportunity to explain their personal inventions and then the sharks (who are already affluent entrepreneurs), get a chance to back the inventions or back away. The two inventors of Ice Chips received a deal from the sharks and now have a successful sugar-free candy company.


What Makes Ice Chips Different from Other Sugar-Free Candy?


Xylitol is the key ingredient in Ice Chips. This makes the candies much more flavorful than regular sugar-free candy. In addition, Ice Chips only contain Xylitol from Birchwood which makes them 100% natural.
