Useless Fact For September 8

The Fact Speaks:

PEZ Candy was first marketed as a compressed peppermint candy over 70 years ago in Vienna, Austria. The name PEZ was derived from the German word for peppermint...PfeffErminZ. Today, over 3 billion PEZ candies are consumed annually in the U.S.A. alone.

Jasper Speaks:

Being a Pez dispenser collector, I found this quite interesting. Now when people ask me where the name PEZ came from I know the answer. So maybe this fact isn't quite as useless as they normally are!
