In 1927, Eduard Hass III started selling peppermint-flavored bonbon candies out of a small tin, originally as a “luxury confection for wealthy people.” Nearly three decades later, the Austrian ditched the metallic box for a plastic dispenser adorned with the heads of Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse, and marketed his sweet PEZ to kids.
More history and enough paraphernalia to info to give any PEZ-head a sugar high can be consumed (both orally and visually) at the world’s only PEZ Museum in Burlingame, CA. But for those unable to make it to the affluent, small-town outpost on the San Francisco peninsula, Geek Entertainment TV (Tilzy.TV page) saves you the trip.
The show’s still very internet famous host (don’t trust what her t-shirt says), Irina Slutsky and the equally internet famous lifecaster, iJustine take you on a well-guided tour of the small yet substantial honorarium to Pfefferminz.
Like how GETV handles retro kitsch? Then Violet Blue’s tour of San Francisco’s Musee Mecanique is also sure to delight.
