Growing up as a child I always remembered loving PEZ candies. To be honest, I STILL love PEZ candies. Thank goodness I never became a collector of these little pieces of plastic that dispensed sweet treats. I'm sure I would have gone broke if I had.
The word PEZ is taken from pfefferminz, which is German for peppermint. The original prototype was created in 1927 in Austria. Currently they are being made, round-the-clock, in Orange, Connecticut.
