Barbara and Kevin Kiss on ABC’s Shark Tank

There is no limit to the entrepreneurial spirit that is exhibited on Shark Tank every week, but one invention has two of the judges in a position that they never expected – one where they have to kiss to determine the product’s worthiness!
When founders of Kisstix Dallas Robinson and Mike Buonomo appear on the Shark Tank in an effort to gain an investment for their newly found lip balms, no one was prepared for what was going to happen next. Kisstix works by pairing two complimentary flavors – think sweet and sour as well as strawberries and chocolate – that are to be shared by kissing. In order to determine if the product had merit and is the next big thing in the lip balm industry – Kevin and Barbara have to test the product out – on each other!
Barbara is immediately overcome with a case of the giggles while Kevin is all ready set to smooch. The premise is that as couples kiss, the lip balms cause a chemical reaction that leaves an impression and the couples coming back for more. The kiss between Barbara and Kevin was successful and Kisstix managed to secure funding by Mark Cuban.
