(Eric Ostrow) “My name is Eric Ostrow and I am the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Smarties Candy Company. I started my employment in May of 1980. Our products haven’t changed much in 30 years according to formula. This year, we sold about 7 million pounds of Smarties in the United States for Halloween. If you break that down into individual tablets, you’re looking at about 6.3 billion tablets. We sold as many Smarties rolls at Halloween as would wrap around the Earth! My favorite is the white. It is a creamsicle flavor. It’s just absolutely delicious!”
