Museum of PEZ Memorabilia

For the benefit of overseas readers, PEZ is an American tradition. It is a form of candy (that's a sweet to Brits, or a lolly to Australians). The original candy was peppermint, and it gets its name from the German word for that flavor, PfeffErminZ (the firm started out in Vienna, Austria). What marks it out from other such products is that it is sold in collectable dispensers. You get something to eat, and a toy. As PEZ has been around in the USA for 50 years, there have been a lot of dispensers, and many American fans have grown up as PEZ collectors, or PEZheads.

The Museum of PEZ Memorabilia exists to collect and preserve PEZ material. It is conveniently located close to the Burlingame station on the Caltrain line and is thus easily reachable from San José.
