Event Recap: Interview With The Founders of UNREAL Candy

by Dmitry Dragilev

Nicky Bronner and Adam Melonas are the founders of UNREAL Candy. What’s so unreal about it? It’s delicious candy made of natural, unmodified, and responsibly sourced ingredients. We wanted to find out what their secret to success was when we heard that in just a few years, UNREAL is being sold at CVS and Target, and has celebrities evangelists like John Legend, Matt Damon, Bill Gates, and Tom Brady. So we invited them to come for an interview event. The story behind how the company came to me is both inspiring and funny, and they shared all of it with us at the event. Check out the video and photos from this event below, where we interviewed 16 year-old Co Founder, Nicky Bronner, and his partner, Chef Adam Melonas to learn how they worked to build and bring to market a conscientious consumer product in an industry that has until now completely disregarded consumer health.
