More than 50 years after it was introduced here, Pez candy still has a hold on our nation—or a few of us, anyway. This group of 60 Pez collectors, who call themselves Pezheads, had their second annual trading and collecting convention last Saturday, held in their apartment pool room in De Pere, Wisc. It’s not exactly the Waldorf-Astoria, but I doubt the Pezheads are concerned with such things.
Since you've missed your chance to attend this year, here's a place to go to see things like the European Shrek or Hello Kitty Pez dispensers. It's an online extravaganza. The official site is, as you may have guessed, Pez.com.
