‘Shark Tank’ revisited: Biem, Angels and Tomboys, The Solemates, and Atlantic Candy Company (Toy Box)
It’s the final Friday of the year tonight, and this means in turn the last chance to discuss all things “Shark Tank” in 2016! The episode tonight originally aired back in October, and it features four products that cover everything from food to footwear. This was a fun episode when it first aired, and there’s a certain degree of potential with almost all of them featured.
As with every other entry in our Revisited series, the primary purpose of this article is to offer up some sort of update on how these businesses are doing now based on the information easily available — sometimes, it’s not so easy to see improvement, especially when you consider that it’s only been two months since the initial airing and business-wise, that’s not a whole lot of time to shake things up.
Without further ado, let’s get to the products.
The Solemates – The company’s doing a good job on their website and social-media reminding people that the show is repeating tonight, while also offering some discounts and doing on thing in particular that we really like: Highlighting times that various celebrities, including Carrie Underwood and Rachel Platten, use their product while doing their jobs. It’s a reminder that it clearly works, and it certainly can for everyday people looking for a way to wear high heels in less-than-favorable environments.
Atlantic Candy Company – Since the show, the company claims that they’re getting everything in place in order to expand these out and sell them at as many different retail venues as possible. Do we think that having a piece of chocolate with a toy inside is cool? Sure, and we say this as someone who’s had many a Kinder egg in Canada; yet, at the same time there’s not anything about this that feels like it’d be a must-have if we were a kid. There’s a chance for success, but it’s not a guarantee by any means.
Biem – The product is awesome. It’s a device that effectively turns your butter into a spray that you can use for everything from popcorn to a way to make the perfect grilled cheese. It is still expensive at $130, so it’s probably just for people who really love to do fun, quirky things in the kitchen. The biggest issue that they’ve seemed to run into since being on the show is trying to meet all of the demand that is out there; for now, you can pre-order one off of the website, but there’s no guarantee as to when it will arrive to you.
Angels and Tomboys – This body-spray product was meant to appeal to young people when it first arrived in the Tank, and based on everything that we’re seeing so far, business must be doing rather well! They’ve introduced several new varieties over the past couple of months, and continued to build a brand as a fun, non-traditional, and affordable alternative for their market that gives them something age-appropriate as opposed to elaborate and expensive perfumes.
