An integral part of the American scene for approximately 50 years, PEZ Candy has been enjoyed by generations of Americans.

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. Today, over 3 billion PEZ Candies are consumed annually in the U.S.A. alone.

With great tasting flavors and collectable dispensers, PEZ is more than just a candy... it's the pioneer of "interactive candy" that is both enjoyable to eat and fun to play with. PEZ Dispensers are a hot collectable for adults and children alike as well as being a staple and part of American pop culture. New character dispensers are introduced regularly to reflect current trends.

PEZ Candy is manufactured in Orange, Connecticut by PEZ CANDY, INC. and marketed through supermarkets, mass merchandisers, variety stores, drug stores, convenience stores, toy chains and gift stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. Available around the world in more than 80 countries, PEZ Candy and Dispensers truly have universal appeal.

Quick ideas for using the PEZ Presidential Fun Facts Calendar.

  • Post the calendar in a learning center. Then have students choose one of the activities each day.

  • Create a quick seatwork solution! Have students staple the calendar on the outside of a file folder. Each day, have students choose one of the activities and complete it on notebook paper. Then students keep the notebook paper inside the folder. They can work on this anytime they have a few minutes to spare.

  • Have small groups become presidential experts! Assign a small group of students to each of the five presidents. Have group members each select an activity to complete. Then invite groups to present their work to the class.

First time I hear about these candies, all the years that I have been missing them!

Every once in awhile I pick some up for my kids. And my kids are 25 and 27.  lol  They found out about them from watching "Pretender"

I think Pez is useless but seeing all the different kinds of dispensers is fun!  I have had quite a few over the years and I get them for my son still if I see a unique one and he's 16 now.

it brings back fond memories.

Oh, well, I was not raised in the USA, and we did not have them in Cuba, for sure...
