Pricklee Cactus Water Net Worth 2022 – What Happened After Shark Tank?

Pricklee Cactus Water1

Mohammed Hassoun was shopping at a market when prickly pears, at one of the stalls, caught his eye.

In a moment of nostalgia, these thorny little fruits took him back to when he was a child living in Lebanon and the prickly pear juice that his Grandma used to make for her family.

So he bought some and when he got home he made juice out of the fruit just as he remembered his grandma doing. When Mohammed and his friend Kun Yang tried the juice they were both blown away by the refreshing taste and voila, Pricklee Cactus Water was born.

What Is Pricklee Cactus Water?

Pricklee Cactus Water is a juice extracted from prickly pears which comes in three delicious flavors and has half the calories and sugar of coconut water.

Over and above that, according to the presentation that  Mohammed and Kungave on Shark tank, Pricklee Cactus Water is packed full of antioxidants and is really good for you.

Shark Tank Appearance

Kun and Mohammed gave a stellar pitch during their Shark Tank appearance as this video by Joe Pardo shows, but the sharks were dubious about whether or not their distribution is up to scratch.

Also, the fact that the packaging of the water isn’t really a true reflection of how good this drink is for you, was brought up.

Shark Tank Investment – Did It Go Through?

Yes, it most certainly did go through, as explained in this post on Shark Tank Recap, but not without some haggling as Kun and Mohammed were looking for a $200 000 investment in exchange for a 5% stake and Kevin offered this amount for a 20% stake which was very respectfully argued by Kun.

Eventually Barbara stepped in and agreed to their terms of a $200 000 credit line in exchange for a 5% share.

What Is Their Turnover?

For a new start-up, Pricklee Cactus Water is doing really well.
