Pez Collector’s News is an information website for Pez collectors and enthusiasts. Its motto is, “The Largest & Longest Running PEZ Newsletter Ever”.

The website was founded in 1995.


Pez is a small “candy brick” invented by Austrian Eduard Haas in 1927.

The word ‘Pez’ is an abbreviation of the German word for peppermint, the original flavour of the sweet. The highly collectible Pez ‘dispensers’ were created around 1950.

The cartoon heads for which the dispensers became famous were introduced around 1953 – it is estimated that over 500 ‘heads’ have been made.
