This month, I’m sharing products by entrepreneurs who are under the age of 18. They represent the next generation of business owners who are making their mark in the food and beverage industry. Show them some love!
Me & the Bees Lemonade
The refreshing prickly pear features berry notes with a hint of sugar. The lip-smacking ginger presents a full-bodied spice with a sweet-tangy aftertaste. Both are made with 100 percent lemon juice and 25% less sugar to keep you cool and happy this summer. Cheers!

Bakeology 101: A Recipe Book & Guide to Baking with S.T.E.A.M

It offers the right amount of content for children under 12-years-old without sounding like a dry textbook. It also highlights other young entrepreneurs doing great things. A fun read!

Charlie’s Treats Maple Pecans
This delectable snack smells like warm maple syrup on a Sunday morning. The fresh nuts munch with delight and taste like pecan pie without the crust. It also satisfies a sweet tooth. I’m pouting for not getting a larger bag.

Zollipops and Zaffi Taffy
I’m a fan! These yummy candies promote clean teeth while being sugar-free. Eat a hard pop or a chewy taffy after each meal for best results. They don’t stick to your teeth or surfaces. The fruit flavors bring joy to the palate. Find them in the dental care aisle.

Symphony Potato Chips
Crunchy, savory and delicious – this chip brand comes in original and smoked, my favorite. Both contain a crispy light texture with a touch of salt. The smoky seasoning reminds me of a backyard BBQ in a bag. Finger-licking good!
