Do you remember PEZ candies? I mean, I know they still make the dispensers and all, but the popularity isn’t what it once was (they have been around for approximately 50 years). Though, I must say, being from a family of self-proclaimed candy connoisseurs, my children (ages 7 and 11) do know what PEZ candies are and how to work the dispensers, BAM!
Also on that note, I think they are making a come-back! I recently had the opportunity to try a new product from PEZ called PEZ Hedz. These soft candy chews come in a variety of flavors (think: cherry/blueberry/strawberry, peach/raspberry/strawberry).
We got to try both the Hello Kitty and the Bearz. The candies themselves are about as big as a fifty cent piece (just sticking with the vintage theme). They are gluten free, vegetarian, gelatin free, and 99% fat free. Plus, for those of you with nut allergies or those that pack a dessert item in their children’s lunchbox, they are also peanut free (so your kids could take them to school!)
We enjoyed our PEZ Hedz during Family Movie Night (along with popcorn, of course!). We also enjoyed them in the car on the way to take a load of belongings to storage for the big move (more on that in a future post).
Here is the reaction after the first bite:
We give them a thumbs UP!
Verdict: They are DELISH!
You can purchase PEZ Hedz online at Pez.com or at select Walgreens, Rue 21, Dylan’s, Dollar Tree, Toys R Us, among several others.
What are some of your favorite candies from when you were young? Do you still have any of your old PEZ dispensers? Have you tried PEZ Hedz?
Until Next Time,
