PEZ Candy announces two new flavors (yes they are vegan)

As odd as it sounds, there is something about getting candy from a cartoon character’s head that makes it even tastier.

Yes we are talking PEZ, the delicious little “interactive candy” that makes even the most rigid adult magically soften for a moment and almost become childlike—except maybe for certain conservative talk show hosts.

Even better, the tasty little morsels are free of animal products (yep they are vegan) and now two new flavors are about to take the candy world by storm.

PEZ Candy, Inc. has announced the addition of Strawberry-Vanilla and Raspberry-Lemon to its already robust line of flavors.

"We are very excited about our new flavor bends. They have done well in Europe and we have modified the flavors accordingly for the U.S. market," stated Joe Vittoria, CEO of PEZ Candy, Inc. "Look for PEZ to bring more innovation and fun to the consumer."

The new flavors will be introduced as part of a 10-pack bonus candy sku but will eventually be available for purchase online and included within regular assortment packages.

We know PEZ is not health food, but they are fun, tasty and they are vegan. What else can you ask for?
