Okay, okay, Pez candy aren’t that bad. They’re mostly just pressed sugar, and I’ve never had one that tasted ‘green’. But they are a big disappointment when you’re a kid who gets $2 a week to spend on candy, and buying one Pez dispenser means you have to save up for a few weeks. I remember being about 6 or 7 and doing the math to figure out how big a bag of 5¢ candies I could have got for the same price as a single Pez, and then being very sad about it. As a result, I think that’s the only Pez I’ve ever bought, and I can’t even remember what character I got. (It was the 80’s, so probably a smurf or a ninja turtle.)
