6th July 2020 – NEW IN! My will these fly off the shelf (not on a broomstick) we have Harry Potter Pez which is a must for any Harry Potter fan. Also arriving today is Scooby-Doo Pez now who watched that as a child (or even as an adult!). Try the great tasting flavours and collectable dispensers; Pez is more than just a sweet! It is 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.
Fun Fact - The word Pez was created using the first, middle and last letter in the German word for peppermint PfeffErminZ.
Pez was invented in 1927 by Eduard Haas III in Vienna, Austria. Pez came up with the idea to create fruity flavoured versions and cute, character-themed dispensers in 1952. The idea worked! In no time, children and adults were in love with Pez. The very first dispensers available were a Full-body Santa, Robot, and Space Gun. And since then, the character-themed dispensers have taken off!
Believe it or not, people pay big bucks for these things! The highest price ever paid was $3600 for a rare Big Top Elephant, which was sold by David Welch in July 1995. So why not start collecting too!
