all around the
world. But just when you thought it was safe to stand up your Pez
dispensers, here I come. I don't have feet at all; in fact, if you
stood me up I stand a good chance of falling over. Instead, I stand
on my side, thanks to these trusty wheels.
Big Rig Pez dispenser is rollin' right along.
Monthly: Thanks for joining us, Big Rig Pez.
You are one of the newest additions to the Pez line-up and
you are already creating quite the buzz. Why do you think
Rig Pez: Well, I think variety is the spice
of life, or is at least a close second to paprika. Lately
it seems that dispenser after dispenser has had feet, so
that they could stand up in Pez displays
And what nice wheels those are. However, you aren't the first
truck dispenser to have wheels. In fact I believe they have all
had wheels over the years. So what sets you apart from those trucks
of Pez past?
me tell you, about fifteen years ago they brought the Pez
trucks back for the fourth time in the history of Pez. From what
I hear, everyone partied pretty hard when that happened because
Pez trucks are some of the most admired of all the dispensers.
I don't mean to toot my own truck horn, I'm just saying. But when
they brought the Pez trucks last time, their wheels didn't move!
I can't imagine how frustrating that would have been. So in a
way I am a callback to the Pez trucks of before, but in another
way I have been souped up for modern times, and I was even given
the cool name "Big Rig."
I see. Big Rig Pez, I don't want to inflate your ego more than
it clearly already is, but I find this combination of yours as
a Pez dispenser and as a working toy truck all rolled into one
simply amazing. Do you think you could beat a Hot Wheels car in
Now let's not get ahead of ourselves here. I might have a big
ego, but I'm not foolhardy enough to believe I'd stand a chance
against a Hot Wheels car, even if I was fully loaded with Pez
candy. I mean, it would be like Don Knotts racing Dale Earnhardt
Jr. That being said, in addition to simply being pushed, I can
also be launched if you pull my chamber back and release it at
just the right time, sending me into rocket-like propulsion. Just
don't pull too hard or I might break, and also don't try it when
there's tasty candy inside of me. It's all fun and games until
a Pez projectile causes you to lose an eye.
That is oh so true. And on top of all of this, is there an added
bonus of being a Pez truck, when you yourself were delivered to
the store presumably in a truck?
Definitely, that's a big deal. It really makes me appreciate where
I came from. Just as the truck rolled into town and unloaded me
for all to purchase and enjoy, I in turn get to roll around and
unload fruity goodness for kids of all ages. It just blows my
mind. Sometimes I forget just how lucky I am to be a part of the
Finally, Big Rig Pez, are you aware that the first letters of
your name bring to mind the noisy expulsion of gas from the stomach
through the mouth?
I don't mean to answer your final question with a final question,
but have you seen what they serve at truck stops these days? I'll
tell you what, you'd be BRPing too.
