Pez the Season to Be Cutie

Our friend Danny collects PEZ candy dispensers. These four cuties are a sample of his large collection. Though PEZ had been introduced in the 1920s in Austria, toy character head dispensers did not appear until 1955, when the candy was introduced in the United States. There are over 550 unique dispenser heads with thousands of variations. Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse were among the first character dispensers.
