Top 10 Products from Shark Tank Season 7
It's almost the start of Shark Tank Season 8! The first episode of the new season begins on September 23rd, 2016 - MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
This year, Chris Sacca will be making more appearances, and they will even have one or two episodes featuring SIX sharks, instead of the usual five. I can't wait to see the fireworks with all those Sharks competing against each other.
In the meantime, I thought we'd take a trip back in time to last season. We've taken some stats from our site here and compiled the ten most popular products from Shark Tank Season 7. What's amazing about this list of products is that (of the products that got investments), they all have as their investors either Lori or Barbara! Clearly, Robert, Daymond, Mark, and Kevin all have catching up to do if they want to make next year's list :) Talk about girl power!
So take a few minutes and revisit your favorite products before the excitement of the new season begins!
Far and away, the Simply Fit Board was hands-down the Number One product of last season. If you don't remember, the Simply Fit Board is a simple plastic board with a curved bottom that you balance and twist on. It provides a very simple core workout that you can do anywhere without any complicated equipment. They claim it does wonders for belly fat and the dreaded "muffin-top", but it's also good for posture and balance.
Here's a video demonstrating how you use it:
The Simply Fit Board got an investment from Lori Greiner.
This amazing natural deoderant comes in second in our Season 7 rankings. With an investment from Barbara Corcoran, PiperWai joins other all-natural beauty products featured on Shark Tank, such as Simple Sugars and Saavy Naturals (see below).
Unlike other over-the-counter deoderants, PiperWai uses charcoal for moisture absorption, and is ideal for people whose sensitive skin is easily irritated. What's great is it doesn't leave any marks on your clothes, either, so you can feel confident all day, even in the hottest days of the summer.
If anyone doubts that Lori Greiner is the Queen of the Tank, her investment in Brazi Bites puts two of her investments in the top three results of this ranking. Wow!
Brazi Bites are a delicious snack with origins in Brazil, where it's a traditional snack. It consists of a little bread ball filled with gooey, melted cheese - yum! You can pop a few in the microwave and have a delightful, warm, cheesy snack in a few seconds. And even though the outside looks and tastes like bread, it's actually gluten-free!
Brazi Bites come in a variety of mouth-watering flavors, like bacon, pepperjack, and garlic asiago.
Sadly, Milk & Brookies did not get an investment from the Sharks, but that didn't stop it from coming in Number Four on our countdown. After all, who could resist the delicious combination of brownies and cookies combined into one delectable treat?! (Besides the Sharks, that is.)
What makes these Brookies even more special is that customers can mix and match different varieties of brownie and cookie when they place their order! And they have a test kitchen where they're constantly working on newer, better, and more delicious brownie-cookie combinations.
Are you the kind of person who wishes you could just SKIP going to salon? It's a hassle making the appointment, getting there, and sitting in the chair for an hour or more while someone works on your hair. You have better things to do with your time!
CreaClip (another Lori Greiner investment, natch) was invented for people like you! This simple hair clip allows you to cut your own hair from home in just a few minutes - and it's guaranteed to look like a salon cut. No one will ever guess you cut it yourself lol.
Here's a video demonstrating how easy it is to use:
Is keeping your identity safe from identity thieves a top priority for you? It probably should be, given the number of times identities are stolen every day. Sometimes it's as simple as a thief being CLOSE to you that allows them to scan your credit card - even if it's still in your wallet or purse. Yikes.
Luckily, the SignalVault is a card that sits alongside your most important credit cards and provides an electronic force-field around them, keeping your identity safe. It will last for up to nine years, and never requires a battery or charging.
This product, invented by a couple of kids, will save you from sticky hands when you're eating ice cream. It will also save you from losing any of that delicious ice cream as it drips off the cone and onto the ground.
This little disc slips over your cone before it starts to melt and catches your drips - and when you're done with the ice cream, you can eat the disc, with all the drips that would have ended up on your hand or the ground.
It doesn't seem like the Drip Drop Cone is available to buy yet, but hopefully it will be soon with a little help from investor Barbara.
If you're a pizza snob like I am, you know how disappointing a frozen pizza can be. It's never cooked quite right, and everything is soggy and doughy. Well, one entrepreneur in Brooklyn with his own pizza shop is trying to change that.
He's taking his brick-oven cooked pizzas and flash-freezing them, allowing him to put them in the freezer section of your grocery store. Now you can enjoy a mouth-water Brooklyn pizza from your home no matter where you are! This is great news for anyone who has been "burned" by bad frozen pizza.
Once again, this marvelous Shark Tank product has the most marvelous of all Shark Tank investors: Lori Greiner.
Saavy Naturals is a brand of soaps and lotions that uses all-natural, food-grade ingredients. If you have sensitive skin, there's nothing worse than getting an irritating itch from some lotion or cream you've never used before. Saavy Naturals is actually vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free, so it's perfect for people with skin issues.
If you can treat your outside as well as you treat your insides, you'll be in store for a long and healthy life.
I'm a little surprised that BetterBack comes in this low, but at least it's in the Top Ten. There were MANY products that didn't make the Top Ten this year (you can see ALL the Season 7 products here), so I guess I should be glad it made the list at all. I feel like this posture-improving product could be the best of all the products listed here. The reason why is that it's incredibly simple, but provides a truly life-changing result. So many people spend their whole lives hunched in front of a computer, and BetterBack fixes that in an instant. If you don't believe it, just take a look at this video:
Unsurprisingly, BetterBack got an investment from Lori Greiner, truly the Queen of the Tank (or at least of Season 7)
