Whataburger is a fast food restaurant chain in the Southeastern and Southwestern United States regions. These restaurants historically featured an A-framed orange and white stripe roof and the company logo is an orange and white striped W. The restaurant teamed up with PEZ to have a uniquely molded dispenser with their logo! The typical Whataburger restaurant is featured on the card graphics. This is a great promotional pez and it is so nice to have something with a unique head instead of a printed truck or puck or ball! Kudos to Whataburger for a great promotional pez! We have these available mint on card or loose to save on shipping!
