PEZ: 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 70 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 to capitalize on current trends.
PEZ Candy is manufactured in Orange, Connecticut by PEZ CANDY, INC. and marketed along with other unique confectionery products through supermarkets, mass merchandisers, variety stores, drug stores, convenience stores, toy chains and gift stores throughout the U.S.A. Available around the world in more than 60 countries, PEZ Candy and Dispensers truly have universal appeal.
