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.
