Tara Bosch was 22-years-old when she decided she was tired of sugar-filled snacks and candy and wanted to do something about it. The entrepreneur is now 23 and the founder of SmartSweets, a gummy bear candy that is healthier than any alternative on the market.
Bosch was surprised by just how much sugar was in all our food with candy being the biggest culprit. Now, SmartSweets only contains about 2g of natural sugar from Stevia and comes in "fruity" and "sour" flavors. The Canada-based company is about to launch nationally in the U.S. in stores, but for now, the product is available online at Amazon.com and on the company's website.
Bosch gives advice to other young, aspiring entrepreneurs. She says to lean into your fears and trust that you will figure it out.
