Next up is Wendy Colson of Boobie Bar, seeking $150,000 for 10 percent equity.
Boobie Bar is an herbal lactation bar perfect for busy, new mothers. According to their website, the bars “were created for busy moms who are looking for a delicious healthy snack packed with superfood ingredients which have been used for years to help nursing moms boost their milk supply in Just ONE Bar.” The flavors include oatmeal chocolate chip, gluten-free peanut butter and blueberry coconut. A six-pack of bars costs $17.99.
The sharks think the bars taste very good and Daymond John admits that he would eat them every day “if [he] had knockers.” Guest shark Sara Blakely thinks the product is interesting, but Mark Cuban worries about claims versus actual proof. In two years, they have done $778,000 in sales.
Mark Cuban sees the need but is concerned about the bar’s claims. He goes out, followed by Lori Greiner over the lack of clinical testing. Blakely has the same concerns and goes out. Kevin O’Leary loves the sales and offers $150,000 for 20 percent. John doesn’t have the same credibility concerns and offers $150,000 for 20 percent with a focus on licensing. Ultimately, Colson accepts John’s offer.
