Shark Tank season 15 episode seven featured Yum Crumbs founder Delson Jeanvilma pitching the sharks on his new twist on dessert toppings. Started in 2020, Yum Crumbs offers a range of dessert toppings billed as “the most scrumptious” of anything on the market. So, what happened to Yum Crumbs after Delson and his son pitched the sharks while filming in the summer of 2023?
Yum Cumbs website explains how the company came to be.
“It all began with a stack of orders for custom crumb cakes and a short supply of time to fulfill them. Even with more than 10 years of baking experience, we found that making crumbs simply took too much time. We reached out to a few high-demand bakers, and they loved the idea of never having to make crumbs again. We researched tirelessly on how to streamline the process and make it affordable without sacrificing the quality of our ingredients that are needed to preserve the authentic taste we all remember growing up. After rounds of testing and working to become compliant with FDA regulations, Yum Crumbs was born.”

Shark Tank: What Happened To Yum Crumbs After The Show
Yum Crumbs is still going strong several months after pitching the sharks. Episode seven finally aired on until Friday, Nov. 17 on ABC where Delson’s family got a deal from two of the sharks.
Delson along with his son pitched the sharks. Then Delson asked his son to leave so he could negotiate. He asked for $100,000 for 10 percent of the company. Kevin O’Leary was interested and made a couple of different offers, referencing his success story of investing in Wicked Good Cupcakes before and making millions. He dropped his offer as low as the asking amount for 15 pecent. But ultimately Delson saw more value in an offer of $100,000 for 20 percent and two sharks, Draymond John and Barbara Corcoran. Delson became very emotional after securing the deal, profusely crying because of all the hardships they went through to get to that point. He also reference his dad recently dying before the pitch as also putting an emotional toll on him.
