PEZ - not just for smokers anymore!

Wednesday's One Cup of Java Challenge: Betsy Ross, Daniel Boone and Paul Revere are three American historical figures who in 1976 became the only three real people to be featured on an item originally targeted to adult smokers but now marketed to kids as well as adult collectors. I have a friend who has more than 800 different items in her collection of these items. I don’t know if she has a Betsy Ross, Daniel Boone or Paul Revere. I know she has Bugs Bunny, Darth Vader and Wonder Woman. Your One Cup question this morning – to name these collectible items, whose name comes from the German word for peppermint.

Answer: Pez dispensers. Pictured here is the "Daniel Boone."
