Kid Spotlight: Lolleez™ Offers a Soothing Solution for Kids’ Sore Throats and Parents’ Minds
Mom Created Startup Offers Organic Throat Remedy for Kids with a Worry-Free Lollipop
WASHINGTON, Conn., Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When it came to sore throats, mom of four and health coach, Melissa Evans couldn't find anything to "eez" her kids' throats or her mind. Thus, the idea for Lolleez™ was born. Lolleez™ are organic, worry-free, throat soothing lollipops for kids, that offer a simple solution to a simple problem. Lolleez™ are now available on Amazon and at CVS and Stop & Shop and soon-to-be Babies 'R' Us, just in-time for cold and flu season.
Last year, when Melissa's daughter came down with a sore throat, she wished there was something she could provide to soothe her and put a smile back on her face. That's when she noticed there were no options that she felt comfortable with. Cough drops and lozenges posed a risk for choking and, for the most part, contained chemicals like artificial colors, flavors and ingredients. She then came up with the idea for a worry-free, healthier and fun alternative for kids.
What makes Lolleez™ different? First, it's the ingredients – Lolleez™ are made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients and ingredients you can pronounce and understand, like organic honey and natural fruit pectin. They are also Non-GMO as well as gluten, dairy and nut free. Second, it's the worry-free shape – Lolleez™ are flat and on a stick versus a round ball, which is a potential choking hazard. Lastly, it's the flavors – Lolleez™ comes in three delicious kid (and adult) 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.
"Few ailments cause overall unhappiness to both kids and parents like a sore throat. Whether it's allergies, a cough or a cold, a sore throat is painful. Every time you swallow, it's there and it hurts," said 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 now available on Amazon and at CVS and Stop & Shop and soon-to-be Babies 'R' Us. Lolleez™ come in packs of 15 pops: Watermelon, Strawberry, Orange Mango and a Variety Pack for a suggested retail price of $6.99. For more information about Lolleez™, please visit www.lolleez.com.
