Pez DispensersIn 1952, Eduard Haas first imported Pez candy into the U.S. Initial sales of the candy were low. Eduard Haas decided to reintroduce the candy with a new packaging that doubled as a child's toy. Pez dispensers had cartoon heads and were filled with new fruit flavors. The Pez dispenser was a hit making the candy very popular with children.
Currently, PEZ Candy is manufactured in Orange, Connecticut by PEZ CANDY, INC
