An integral part of the American scene for approximately 50 years, PEZ Candy has been enjoyed by generations of Americans.
PEZ was first marketed as a compressed peppermint candy over 83 years ago in Vienna, Austria. The name PEZ was derived from the German word for peppermint ... PfeffErminZ. Today, over 3 billion PEZ Candies are consumed annually in the U.S.A. alone.
With great tasting flavors and collectable dispensers, PEZ is more than just a candy... it's the pioneer of "interactive candy" that is both enjoyable to eat and fun to play with. PEZ Dispensers are a hot collectable for adults and children alike as well as being a staple and part of American pop culture. New character dispensers are introduced regularly.
