I'm Pezzed Off!

While tidying last weekend, I discovered that part of a wooden flat within my closet had almost completely rotted away, taking two paper-bags stuffed full of toys with it.

Fortunately, the toys have been salvaged for the most part but one of the bags was full of PEZ. This is when I discovered something that I should have known better. Even though the Pezzes were wrapped in plastic, little bacteria managed to chew away at the candies and turned them to goo. I washed them all and they turned out all right but no more "mint in package" Pezzes for me.In the future, I'll just toss the candy and if I ever use the Pez as an actual dispenser, I'll buy some fresh ones. I have a few more in various different bags and I'll have to make sure that they haven't been affected.

Here is a sextet of Star Wars and a trio of Super-heroes. I know I have some more heroes around somewhere, such as Thor and Hulk. Also a pair of Simpsons, Taz and Gonzo (I'm surprised I don't have more of these Muppet or Warners' characters!)

This is an example of a completely destroyed Pez package. I have no idea who gave it to me because I am certain I didn't buy it myself.

It included this lame Valentine Pez. But I paired it up with this awesome mini-Pez of an Alien Baltran. I don't know why I didn't pick up an entire set of these Ultraman villains, but I don't ever recall seeing them for sale, I must have found this one at a flea market.

As a belated birthday present, my pal Takayo gave me a huge bag stuffed to the hilt of toys. Apart from a few, I'll redistribute the wealth Robin Hood style but I plan to keep the Pez.

Some Chicken Little, Pooh, Disney and Simba Lion King. Not a bad haul.

Once I track down my other Pez, I'll be sure to showcase them. Anyone have any ideas as to how to display these? Maybe within a spice rack?

Have you got any original pez's from the sixties or seventies? We used to get them at Bitners, near the tennis club in Brampton.

I HAD original pezzes (possibly from Bitners) but I don't any longer. I wish I did, they are actually worth some bucks.
Do you have any?
