Calling all Pezheads and history lovers. The Trumbull Historical Society will be hosting a presentation by Shawn Peterson, author of “PEZ: From Austrian Invention to American Icon,” on Sunday, April 23 at 2 p.m.
Did you know that the original PEZ were peppermint flavored? That’s where the name comes from. The German word for peppermint is pfefferminz, and the candies were created as an alternative to smoking.
