PEZ was first marketed as a compressed peppermint candy over 83 years ago in Vienna, Austria. The name PEZ was derived from the German word for peppermint… PfeffErminZ.
PEZ Candy is manufactured in Orange, Connecticut by PEZ CANDY, INC.
My little monkey and I stopped by the Visitor Center for a tour of the Factory. More importantly to buy a new dispenser and get some lemonade flavor and raspberry flavored PEZ candy!
