When we got back from camping this weekend, PEZ rained down upon me like manna from the heavens. The only key difference are that the PEZ came via the post office and Froggies, and not so much from a giant bearded man in the clouds.

On this trip, I picked up the new Ice Age PEZ, the new Cars PEZ, and the easter PEZ packaged in what looks like pantyhose eggs.
As we got home from Froggie’s, there was a pizza box sitting on the porch. This could only mean that I also received my order from Ann Jaeger at Canada Candy Connection. The box contained untold wonders. So, let me tell you about ‘em…
First up, a set of ten different ‘football’ Looney Tunes PEZ, for the soccer crowd. Who know that there was a Looney Tunes Cup anyway?
I also received a cool set of Gundam dispensers. These are unique, since they were created only for the Asian market. You can’t really see from the pic, but they have an awesome flat finish that really sets them apart.
I also snagged a set of crystal Hello Kitty dispensers, that have the cutest stem markings. Pretty Kitty…
