Funky Mello

Funky MelloZach and Delisa Harper introduce Funky Mello, their vegan marshmallows made from chickpeas, in Shark Tank episode 1517. The couple suffers from food allergies and they wanted to create a whipped dessert that satisfied them. Delisa has a marketing background and Zach did pharmaceutical sales for many years. When they started the business in 2017, Zach was still working; he went full time about a year later.

At first, they sold at farmers markets but they gradually grew their online sales and retail footprint. They’re currently in Whole foods in the western and southern midwestern USA. The products are made from chickpeas that are “whipped to perfection with chickpea magic.” Other ingredients include sugar, tapioca syrup, salt and vanilla extract.

Besides Whole Foods, they sell on their website. There are no individual choices – they sell bundles. For instance, a three pack of vanilla, hazelnut and chai marshmallow dips is $19.99. As of the original air date of March 1, 2024, they weren’t fulfilling orders until April/May. Since they already have a retail foot print, they’re likely looking for a Shark to help them scale on a national level.

Funky Mello Shark Tank Recap

Zach and Delisa will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daniel Lubetzky and Daymond John that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Funky Mello will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
