PEZ Candy, Inc. is a candy company world-famous for producing pocket character dispensers that hold fruit-flavored candy pieces. Originally an Austrian company, the name PEZ comes from the letters at the beginning, middle and end of the German word for peppermint, Pfefferminz, the first PEZ flavor.

PEZ dispensers first became popular in 1955, when the PEZ company placed heads on the dispensers and marketed them for children by putting in candy pieces.

Now considered a collector's item for many, dozens of franchises have been adapted into PEZ dispensers, including many of Pixar's films. They have been producing Pixar-themed PEZ dispensers since 2006.
