Inventor of Pez Dispenser Dies


December 15, the world lost Curtis Allina, the man behind the hugely popular Pez dispenser. His Austrian peppermints were originally designed in the 1920s to help people stop smoking but he wanted the kiddies to enjoy them too. Flavorwire has a great article on him and the dispensers, plus photos of really weird dispensers (including a Chuck Norris one).

  1. How sad. I was just admiring my sister-in-law's immense collection of Pez's just the other day.

  2. Oh man, that's sad. Pez dispensers are so timeless, no matter how old I get, I still love them.
