Happy Birthday to Our Founder

Today is the 88th Birthday of our founder, Eddie Dee!

He still comes into the office nearly every day… He’s in the office right NOW, in fact!  Talk about loving what you do and doing what you love… 🙂  Eddie is an inspiration to us all.

Sweet wishes,

    Happy Birthday Eddie! I celebrated in your honor with a purple and red mega-pop- my personal favorite of all the smartie line. My grandpa gave me my first smartie pop when I was 7 and they are still my favorite 38 years later. Thank you for such an iconic and wonderful candy.
