PEZ Astronaut Candy Dispenser Poster

PEZ Spaceman Candy Dispenser Poster

The above poster for promoting the PEZ Spaceman Candy Dispenser was illustrated in 1959 during the height of the space race. I came across the poster at so I was inspired to go and do a search to see the actual Astronaut dispenser in action, however sadly the actual item didn’t match the quality of the advertisement. Although on the flip side I discovered that the name PEZ was derived from the German word for peppermint, Pfefferminz which the first PEZ flavor.
