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!
