Pfefferminze…or PEZ?

Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered that easily. I am Karina, and I am here to explain the popular candy of PEZ! 

The popular candy known as PEZ was an Austrian candy before it came to the United States. It has been loved and adorned for many, many years. Now what exactly does PEZ come from? Well, the original name was from the German word for Peppermint, Pfefferminze. PEZ comes from the letters within the word: Pfefferminze. The bold letters make up the word PEZ. Interesting, huh? Well, look for more posts on PEZ later on. We will make a category on PEZ for more fun! See ya!
