KissTixx is a line of flavored kissing lip balms known for their fun combinations including Strawberry Daiquiri & Pina Colada, Fire & Ice, Strawberry & Chocolate, and Sweet & Sout, among others. The two entrepreneurs behind KissTixx, Dallas Robinson and Mike Bounomo of Utah Valley University, pitched their business on Shark Tank in 2012. After getting Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary and Barbara Corcoran to demonstrate the product (they kissed!), they accepted an offer of $200,000 in exchange for 40 percent equity by Mark Cuban.
KissTixx is still available for $6 online (see link above) but after Shark Tank, the founders have pursued new endeavors. In 2016, Robinson became one of four co-owners of The Baked Bear, an ice cream shop in Utah known for making custom ice cream sandwiches. (The Baked Bear is a franchise based in California; there are 4 retail shops in Utah.) The state of Utah is known for its ice cream consumption. Robinson told The Standard-Examiner that “ice cream replaces alcohol consumption” and there are many large families with young children who love ice cream. And Bounomo is the founder and COO of Wise Home Solutions, a company that provides smart home security in Draper, Utah.
