Case: 20 Years of Pez Containers by Teresa Pangburn
The purpose of this exhibit is to entertain. I’ve been collecting Pez containers for over 20 years and my friends and family have enjoyed seeing the collection grow over the years. I think adults and kids alike would be interested in seeing all the different types, characters and variations of dispensers over the years. Enjoy!
Pez was first marketed as a compressed peppermint sweet in Vienna, Austria in 1927 by a candy maker named Eduard Haas III. The first Pez mint dispensers, known as “regulars,” were similar in shape to a cigarette lighter, and dispensed an adult breath mint marketed as an alternative to smoking. In 1952 Eduard Haas introduced his product to the US. In 1955, the Pez Company placed heads on the dispensers and marketed them for children. Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse were among the first character dispensers. Since 1950, over 1500 Pez dispensers, including the original character dispensers, have been created.
