So sad to say that I have
lost my precious SKITZ
Skitz was with me for 15 years and loved to lay atop my monitor and watch me work
May 3, 1997 - August 21, 2012
Skitz now rests under the purple plum tree where he can watch the humming birds feeding all day long.
I miss him so much
PEZ, a short history...............
Edward Haas first invented peppermint breath mints in 1927. He called them "PEZ" , an abbreviation of the word "Pfefferminz". It was a small sugar tablet with peppermint oil added. PEZ was sold in pocket-size tins marketed as a breath mint for smokers. Mr. Haas was himself a non-smoker.
Twenty years after the candy was invented (1948), a gentleman by the name of Oscar Uxa invented and patented a little mechanical box for the dispensing of the candy. This little mechanical box resembled a cigarette lighter which was marketed as a product for adults.
In 1952, Haas decided to see how his
product would go in the US market. He soon decided that it was not
going to work here without some embellishment. He added fruit flavors
to the little compressed sugar block and then put a 3 dimensional
cartoon head on top of the
Over the years there have been several
updates to the box itself. These updates are shown in the different
patent numbers found on the side of each dispenser.
Dispensers changed from *footless* to *footed* in 1987. There are a few exceptions to this rule however, the valentine hearts, trucks and re-release of the regulars and the psychedelic eyes.
