I have received some free Zollipops and Zaffi Taffy to review. Not heard of these? Nor had I, but I was very impressed to hear that these sugar-free treats were inspired by a 7 year old asking her dad “Why can’t we make a lollipop that’s actually good for your teeth?”
So how are these sweets good for your teeth I hear you ask?
Well after a meal or sugary snack, our mouths can become very acidic. This acidic environment is when tooth decay is most likely to spread and also tooth enamel is at its weakest. However it is not good to brush your teeth immediately after a meal due to the enamel being at its softest. I always brush my teeth before breakfast and last thing at night to avoid mealtimes.
But instead the ingredients in Zollipops, Zolli Drops, and Zaffi Taffy work naturally with our bodies to help reduce the acidity and balance the pH in our mouths. Thus reducing the risk of tooth decay and future development of cavities by having this treat after a meal or eating or drinking a sugary snack. And our teeth can re-mineralize faster, making them stronger and harder.
So these are branded as the sweet that is good for your teeth. A treat that you can have after you eat for a healthy smile. With a recommendation of upto 3 Zollipops or upto 5 Zaffi Taffy a day.
They are the perfect treat for kids and parents don’t need to feel guilty about giving them to kids. Also they are sugar free, gluten free, vegan, dairy free and only contain natural flavours and colours.
Son2 was particularly pleased when he heard that we were going to be reviewing lollipops. He always loves that the hairdresser and some restaurants offer him a lollipop whilst I’m thinking just the opposite.
So firstly trying the Zollipops. These come in 6 flavours: Strawberry, Grape, Orange, Raspberry, Pineapple, and Cherry with 8 in the bag. Currently available online at £2.49 so significantly more expensive than a standard lolly, but well worth it in my opinion, to reduce the risk of tooth decay. And thumbs up from the boys who couldn’t taste any difference from an ordinary sugary lollipop.
And secondly the Zaffi Taffy. These come in 5 flavours: Strawberry, Grape, Orange, Cherry, and Pineapple. There are approximately 16 sweets in an 85g packet. Currently available online at £3.49, so again they look dear for the size of the sweet, but think about how you are reducing the risk of developing cavities. These were my personal favourite and the boys agreed too. Nice and chewy.
Also nice to see that 10% of their profits go to support oral health education in schools.
There is also Zolli Drops in the product range. I didn’t review this, however I understand it to be similar to Zollipops but without the stick.
These products are also available via Amazon.
