The History of PEZ

PEZ Candy
Did you know:
PEZ candy was originally only available in peppermint?
It was developed in Vienna in the late 1920's and the name is condensed from peppermint in German: "Pfefferminz".
The First dispensers had no novelty head that we have come to know today. In fact, they were designed to look like cigarette lighters as a way to encourage people to quit smoking.
Today, Pez dispensers come with a wide variety of licensed characters heads from Disney, Warner Bros. cartoons, US presidents, celebrities, comic book characters, and so much more.
PEZ candy dispensers
If you love Pez Candy as much as we do, and want to add to your collection of dispensers, we carry a wide assortment to choose from at Sweet Distractions.
