Pez Essay, Research Paper

Pez was invented in 1927 in Vienna, Austria by an already accomplished candyman named Edward Haas III. The word “Pez” comes from the German word for peppermint, which is phefferminz. You take the first, middle, and last letters, put them together and you get Pez. When Edward Haas first invented Pez it was originally a breath mint for adult smokers, thus the first dispenser which came along in 1947, naturally, looked like a cigarette lighter. In 1952 Edward Haas brought his business to America and did extensive research with his products and the way children had grown attached to them. So in 1952 the first fruit flavored Pez was introduced along with the first Pez dispensers with character heads on them. The first flavors of Pez included cherry, lemon, orange and strawberry. These were the flavors that Edward thought the children would like the most. DispensersIn 1947 when the first Pez dispenser was invented it looked like a cigarette lighter and the “characters” that we know Pez by were not introduced until 1952. It is not certain, but some experts think that Mickey Mouse, and several other Disney characters were the first to appear on the top of dispensers. The top selling dispensers of all times are Mickey Mouse, Santa, and Dino the dinosaur from the Flinstones. Since the beginning of dispensers, over 275 different characters have been featured on top of a dispenser. Before 1987 dispensers did not have “feet”. Feet are the two tabs on the bottom of the dispenser that help it stand up straight. The new Pez “regulars” are a remake of the first dispenser that looked like the cigarette lighter. The new regulars have no feet. Pez dispensers are made in and imported from Austria, Czech Republic, China, Hungry, Hong Kong, Yugoslavia, and Slovenia. The dispensers are sold at local Toys R Us, K-mart, Walmart, Wallgreens, Target, Eckard Drug, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and many other stores. Some dispensers like Bubble Man are only available through Special order direct from the Pez Candy Co. The most money ever paid for a single Pez dispenser was $3,600 brought at auction for a Big Top Elephant dispenser. Dispenser TagsThere are two different types of tags on Pez dispensers. The first type is the patent number. Pez first applied for a patent in 1968, and received the number 2.620.061. The patent number is located on the bottom left side of the dispenser. The patent number can be used to determine how old the dispenser is. The following is a list of all the patents used by Pez Candy Co and what year they represent.When talking to someone that is knowledgeable about Pez someone might hear them use the abbreviations MIB, MOC, MOMC, or NF. What these mean are the dispenser they are referring to is mint in bag {MIB}, mint on card {MOC}, mint on mint card {MOMC}, or no feet {NF}. Pez are sold in two types of packaging. One is in a small plastic bag, and the other is on a slightly larger cardboard card and hard plastic bubble. MIB means the dispenser is mint in the bag, or not opened. MOC means the dispenser is mint on the card, or has not been taken off the card {unopened}. As long as the dispenser is not damaged it is MIB, or MOC. The card or bag can be in any shape and it is still referred to with the word mint. But if the dispenser is MOC, AND the card it is on is in mint condition it is referred to as MOMC, which means mint on mint card. If you have an older dispenser that is MOMC it would be worth much more money than an opened dispenser depending on the dispenser character and age. The last and final abbreviation is NF, which means no feet. Prior to 1987 all dispensers were NF. Some of the discontinued sets of dispensers include the bicentennial, Circus, Erie Specters, Guns, Monsters, Olympics, and Smurfs. Undoubtedly the most sought out dispenser is the 50?s Space Gun that actually shot Pez! These dispensers in any condition are worth several hundred dollars each. One final note is that Pez Candy Co. has never and will never put a real person?s face on a dispenser. If you were to see a dispenser with a real person?s face on it, it is one that is referred to as “Fantasy Pez” and is in no way related to the Pez Candy Co.The CandyOver three billion Pez candies are consumed annually in the U.S. alone. The only flavors of Pez that are currently available in the U.S. are orange, grape, lemon, and strawberry. Sugar free candies are also available in the U.S. in orange, lemon, and strawberry flavors. Until a few years ago there was no grape, and in its place there was cherry, but it was replaced with grape because Pez Candy Co thought the cherry flavor reminded children of cough syrup, so they discontinued it and replaced it with grape flavored Pez. But, if cherry Pez sounds to good, it is still available in Canada. If something crazier than the bland ordinary flavors offered here sound good, hop on a plane to Spain and you pick up some apple and raspberry flavored Pez. Or hitch a ride to Hungry or Thailand and pick up some chocolate Pez. There is even a rare {discontinued} and unusual Pez candy called “IZO” Pez that is vitamin enriched for health minded individuals. There is yet another rare and unusual Pez candy called “Kosher” Pez that is designed to comply with Jewish dietary laws. Some other long gone Pez flavors include chlorophyll, cinnamon, coffee, eucalyptus, flower, licorice, menthol, lime, IZO, and anise. These flavors were not popular enough to keep producing.
