Power Market is a convenience store and gas station with 81 locations in California. A Power Market Pez Advertising Truck was released and we have these in stock now in the Pez Collectors Store. Due to the limited number of Power Market locations and the geographical distribution, it has been tough to get these dispensers for collectors across the USA and worldwide, but it is always fun to add another advertising pez to the collection!

The Mother’s Day Pez Pandas from the USA and Europe are in stock in the Pez Collectors Store. The panda has a gold crown, a crystal head with red heart shaped eyes and the stem is printed with BEST MOM EVER. The USA and European cards are different in that the USA Card does not say Happy Mother’s Day and it comes with Strawberry, Grape and Orange Pez Candy Packs. The European version is the same dispenser and similar card, but it does say Happy Mother’s Day and it comes with 3 packs of Nashi Pear flavored Candy.

Many upcoming pez were on display at the 2024 Sweets and Snacks Expo! The expo is a trade show for companies to display and showcase their upcoming products to retailers and wholesale buyers in hopes of getting more outlets to carry their product. The Pez Collectors Store purchases candy collectibles and meets the qualifications to attend the show, so we can get all the newest information about upcoming Pez releases! We took lots of pictures and got lots of information about upcoming pez releases! We can’t wait to add them to our inventory!

Sweets and Snacks Expo PEZ Booth Indy Car with Pez Presenter Girl

The PEZ Candy booth gives out pez candy pack samples and has a PEZ Presenter Girl in a blue PEZ dress handing out the candy packs. The PEZ presenter girl was represented in the 2024 Sweets and Snacks Expo limited edition exclusive dispenser. The dispenser was given to customers who purchase from PEZ who spent time speaking with their sales rep or others at the show. Due to the very limited distribution at the show, PEZ Candy had some dispenser left over from the 1000 produced and these were offered to collectors who had an opportunity to enter into a drawing. If selected, the lucky collector could purchase the dispenser for $50 including shipping and some of the funds would be donated to the Connecticut Humane Society. This was a great opportunity for collectors who are unable to attend the show to acquire the Indianapolis 2024 Sweets and Snacks Presenter Girl on a blue stem, mint on a card showing the pez girl driving an Indy Car! The Indianapolis Blue Presenter Girl pez joins the Lemon Pez Presenter Girl and the Cherry Pez Presenter Girl which are available in the Pez Collectors Store on both USA and European Cards!
