It is well known that for $P$ and $Q$ lattice polytopes, the Ehrhart polynomial of $P\times Q$ satisfies $L_{P\times Q}(t)=L_P(t)L_Q(t)$. We show that there is a similar multiplicative relationship between the Ehrhart series for $P$, for $Q$, and for the free sum $P\oplus Q$ that holds when $P$ is reflexive and $Q$ contains $0$ in its interior.
