Jelly Belly Candy Company is a seventh-generation family business, and the inspiration for Jelly Belly Sparkling Water came at a Mother's Day party where members of the family had gathered to celebrate. From there, five Jelly Belly Candy Company family members banded together to start Joffer Beverage Company, including three sixth-generation brothers – Justin, Ben, and Stephen Joffer – and two fifth-generation members, Andy and Becky Joffer (sister to Lisa Brasher, Jelly Belly Candy Company CEO). Jelly Belly launched with eight fresh and fun flavors: French Vanilla, Lemon Lime, Orange Sherbet, Piña Colada, Pink Grapefruit, Tangerine, Very Cherry and Watermelon. Each flavor has only two ingredients: carbonated water and natural flavors with zero sugar, zero calories and zero sweeteners. Stephen joins Justin to discuss this fast-growing beverage brand!

Solely was founded as a way to help kids in the community gain easy access to fresh fruit. Solely noticed that for many children, fresh fruit was scarce and kids were loading up on cheap processed foods at home and in school. The idea was simple: create a real fruit bite with the fewest possible ingredients to replace sugar filled, highly processed snacks. It needed to retain the nutritional benefits of whole fresh fruit, but without added sugar, additives, preservatives or chemicals. CEO Simon Sacal joins Justin to discuss this leading fruit snack brand!
