Nintendo PEZ Dispensers

Recently I got some Nintendo themed PEZ dispensers so I thought I’d share with you all what they look like.  Click here to see a bigger picture.

I saw these at the 5 and Below store at a little more than a dollar each and picked them all up about a month or so ago.  Many years earlier when I was at E3 in LA, we visited a candy store at Universal City Walk and saw Nintendo PEZ dispensers for ten bucks each!  Sheesh!  So it was nice to get them so cheap now.  Redemption!

So the four in the set are Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong. Wish they would’ve done other characters, too, like Luigi and Toad.  And how about doing other Nintendo properties BESIDES Mario for once, like Zelda, Metroid, or Kirby PEZ dispensers?

Did you know that PEZ was created in Germany over a century ago, is an abbreviation for the German word for peppermint, and was originally intended as an alternative to smoking?  Interesting.  Anyway, here’s a bigger picture of the Nintendo ones.

  1. These are supercool.

  2. I can never resist just eating all the PEZ at once, so the dispensers are kind of a moot point for me; but I agree they should do some other properties as PEZ.

  3. I’d love to mount these in my car. Load ’em up with breath mints.
