Kids and Collectors Rejoice, PEZ Candies 2017 Is Here!

PEZ is considered as the first interactive candy, and has more than 3000 different collectible dispenser designs. There are over 6 million PEZ collectors worldwide, and a PEZ museum was even built in the US. It all began with a peppermint breathe mint, originating in pocket tins. Edward Haas III, a candy maker, had a dream of creating an alternative to smoking,. but little did Haas know what his dream would blow up to be.

Why do people collect PEZ? Kids love them and adults who loved them as kids seem to have a soft spot as well. Aside from its tasty candies, PEZ features a wide variety of characters from mainstream pop culture that both adults and kids have a connection with.

Several distinguished people have graced the tops of PEZ dispensers, ranging from U.S. presidents to the recording artists such as KISS, One Direction and Jessie J.
