ORANGE, Conn. -- New Pez products are on the way this year. Pez Candy Inc. revealed Feb. 15 that it will launch a Shopkins Pez line through a new partnership with Moose Toys.
Created in 2014, Shopkins is Moose Toys’ line of collectable toys based off grocery items. The collection includes lines of clothing, trading cards and other merchandise.
The candy company will release three new dispensers/candy in Apple Blossom, Kooky Cookie and Strawberry Kiss flavors. And in November, Pez will offer a giftable twin pack featuring a Cheeky Chocolate dispenser along with the Strawberry Kiss flavor. Each twin pack will include Chocolate and Strawberry Pez Candy Refills, both of which will be available online and at various retailers nationwide.
