Pez-Heads Hit The High Seas

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – What happens when you mix Pez with sea water? Dozens of self-proclaimed “Pez- Heads” will find out this summer when they board a Caribbean cruise for Pez collectors.

Up to 100 fans of the plastic candy dispensers are expected to attend the seven-night cruise in August where they will dress like their favorite Pez characters, answer Pez trivia questions like Who was the first president of Pez?, and play “Pezingo” – a Bingo game with Pez-related prizes.

Richard Belyski of Pez Collector’s News is hosting the floating Pez convention and says he expects to see Pez fanatics ranging from kids to bikers to little old ladies.

Although he expects the collectors to pop Pez candies on the high seas, he says, unfortunately, he’s found no proof the sweets can help with seasickness.
