11) Smarties Candy
Smarties Candy was invented in Bloomfield, New Jersey, in 1949. The company originally named Ce De Candy by Edward “Eddie” Dee, a second-generation candy maker from England. Eddie loaded up his car and took his candy to local grocery stores and candy shops. Smarties Candy quickly became a favorite of sweet tooth’s everywhere. The company also makes variations of the original like, Mega Smarties, Giant Smarties, Tropical Smarties, Love Hearts, candy necklaces, Smarties Pops in three sizes, and other candies like Breath Savers. Fun fact: all Smarties products are peanut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. The Smarties Candy Company believes in our children and does a lot for education. In 2013 the company launched its “Smarties Think” campaign to promote education and help classrooms in need by donating over $100,000 to provide school supplies.
