What Happened To Cave Shake After Shark Tank?

"Shark Tank" helps entrepreneurs who are on the brink of success by allowing them to pitch their idea to a team of famous investors. We've seen some of the best kitchen tools and food products come from the show, and back in 2018, Holly Heath and Billie Cavallaro had the chance to appear on the show and present their product to the Sharks.

The duo was pitching Cave Shake, a healthy alternative to a traditional milkshake or dessert shake. The shakes are keto-friendly, vegan, and paleo, and they don't contain any gluten, dairy, or grains. Initially, the two were looking for a $250,000 investment for 10% of their company. However, all of the sharks bailed except Charles Barkley, which left him in a position of power; he wasn't competing with any other investment (per BizzBucket).

Barkley offered Heath and Cavallaro a $250,000 investment for a 20% stake. At first, they tried to get him to budge, but he stood firmly and ultimately secured a deal for his initial offer. Where is Cave Shake today?

Cave Shake has a new name

It looks like securing a deal with Charles Barkley proved to benefit the keto diet-friendly shake brand. However, one major thing has changed since Holly Heath and Billie Cavallaro's "Shark Tank" appearance — Cave Shake is now branded as Space Shake. It's unclear what led to the name change, but Shark Tank Blog suggests it was Barkley's idea. Those looking for the product can now find it at eatspaceshake.com.

The Space Shake comes in three flavors: chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. The shakes are available in either six-packs or 12-packs, with the six-pack retailing for $30 and the 12-pack retailing for about $60. A variety 12-pack featuring all three flavors is available as well.

In addition to online availability, Cave Shake is in a number of brick-and-mortar stores, but the likelihood of finding it depends on your location. A quick zip code search of New York City found zero Cave Shake retailers in a 40-mile radius. However, searching Beverly Hills, California, pulled up more than two-dozen retailers.

Space Shake has been featured in various media outlets

According to the brand's website, a number of media outlets have given Space Shake some press attention. The product was even reportedly featured on season 2 of Big Little Lies. Various food websites, such as BevNet and Food Navigator-USA, have given praise to the product as well.

Gluten-Free Living, a magazine dedicated to the gluten-free lifestyle, touted Space Shake as a product that was "bridging the dairy gap," and covered it in an article about innovation in the gluten-free industry even before its appearance on "Shark Tank."

According to Shark Tank Blog, Barkley promoted the product on his TV show, "Inside the NBA," after making the deal with Holly Heath and Billie Cavallaro. It's unknown how the company is doing financially in 2022, but it's clearly still up and running. Today, Cave Shake has a decent social media following, with 18,000 Instagram followers and more than 2,000 Facebook likes.
