KissTixx is a lip balm product sold in chemically engineered, complimentary flavored pairs that mix to combine a new flavor when two people kiss each other. Inventors Dallas Robinson and Mike Buonomo created KissTixx together while attending Utah Valley University to make kissing more interesting and to enhance their standing with the ladies. Their pitch features one of the more humorous Shark Tank moments when the KissTixx guys get Mr. Wonderful and Barbara Corcoran to test the product with an on-air kiss.

KissTixx Shark Tank Recap

Dallas and Mike came into the Shark Tank seeking   $200k for a 20% share in the business. They explained the product and revealed they had $80K in sales over the course of a year. Barbara, still reeling from her lip locking with Mr. Wonderful, doesn’t care for the product; she’s out. Kevin thinks the valuation is all wrong, so he’s out. Dallas and Mike reveal the have a $540K purchase order from Walgreens and they need capital to produce more product.

Mark thinks the valuation is off, but he thinks KissTixx is cool. He also likes the plan to roll out breath spray and gum. He offers $200k for a 40% share in the company. Daymond and Robert were contemplating making offers, but both explain that Mark’s is better. Dallas and Mike agree to team up with Mark and they leave the Tank knowing they got a deal and made one of the best Shark Tank moments.
