(Lenny Iannia) “Most people work to live… I live to work! And I know that’s kind of backwards, but I love what I do. My name is Lenny Iannia, and I am the Plant Manager here at Smarties Candy Company. Every now and then I catch someone taking a whiff at me and they say, “You smell sweet,” and I tell them I work at a candy factory. I am sworn to secrecy. Our formulas and our practices are proprietary. I can’t really give you some of the secrets they’re family secrets. It’s part of the magic of Smarties. I know it may sound like a cliche, but it is a dream come true for me. It’s a family owned business, and the employees are treated as family, and we hope to bring a little bit of happiness, and a little bit of joy to each and every customer that buys our product. And I mean that sincerely, and I do mean that sincerely. That’s absolutely how I feel.”
