This week we tried Pez, and we are so excited to share our thoughts on it, and here yours as well!

Edward Haas III invented Pez in 1927, which is confectionary candy, and as many already know, can be put into mechanical character shaped dispensers, which makes eating the candy much more enjoyable. A fact that many may not know is that Pez was first invented as a breath mint, although this was altered over the years.

The candy is shaped in blocks, and as they melt in your mouth you only want more. The first original fruit flavors of Pez included cherry, lemon, orange, and strawberry. However, some of the most common American flavors today are orange, lemon, grape, and strawberry, although they have many others such as chocolate, peppermint, sour green apple, sour blue raspberry, and many more.

The wide variety allows for a range of customers to allow most people to enjoy them, so if you’re one of them give us your opinion!

Everybody Loves Pez

Pez was probably my favorite candy growing up. There were so many cool dispensers and the pez just tasted so good. Plus it was pretty neat eating candy out of something’s neck. My parents usually got me pez at each holiday. I always had a Santa or Rudolph dispenser at Christmas, and a bunny at Easter. Sometimes if my parents were feeling generous they would come home with a cool character for me and my sister. We used to trade different characters all the time.

But pez isn’t just for kids. Sure parents don’t go around buying their own pez dispensers, but they always find a way to eat some. For example, my father. We actually have the following event on video camera. My parents liked to tape everything around the holidays.

It was Easter morning, and I was about 4 years old. I had gotten the usual gifts of candy and books, and of course a new pez dispenser with pez. Being four, I hadn’t yet mastered the talent of loading the dispenser with the pez. My uncoordinated fingers tried, but I was failing miserably. My dad said he would load it for me. He opened the pez and loaded the dispenser, but made sure to eat a few in the process! On the video tape you could hear my mom yelling at him to stop eating my candy. I couldn’t blame him though. Everybody loves pez!

Until next time, this is Kandy K….stay sweet!
