Pez candy dispensers have been delighting kids for decades with their adorable designs.
Most of us have never given their shape a second thought, but you have to wonder what inspired them to create such a unique product. It turns out, there’s a lot more hiding in the candy’s history than meets the eye.
I was also surprised by how recently the candy actually made its way over to our country from Europe — and that they weren’t even seen as collectibles for so long, either! It just goes to show how quickly fads like these can take over without warning.
