Ben Vines-Haines and Charlotte Clary have known each other for more than 28 years, and the one thing they always bonded over was their entrepreneurial spirit.  

"The Grannies" as they are known, have: run a newspaper, made home remedies for skin conditions, produced original Murder Mystery Dinner events, and operated an advertising and PR firm.

In 2009, they embarked on becoming candy makers, but they wanted something that wouldn't rot your teeth, so they experimented with Xylitol, which is good for teeth and something diabetics could enjoy.

Ice Chips was born, and soon, Shark Tank came calling!
