Five Questions for Pineapple Sourz Pez
Monthly: Pineapple Sourz Pez, I am sorry
to put you on the spot right off the bat, but why is it
that you and your three colleagues have such a sour outlook?
After all, you are part of one of the newest Pez dispenser
sets out there, along with Sour Green Apple Pez, Sour
Watermelon Pez, and Sour Blue Raspberry Pez. That seems
to be a whole lot of sourness for being a collectible
that has brought so much joy to the world.
Sourz Pez: Oh,
don't worry about starting off with such a confrontational
question. In fact, I get that a lot. Just last week, Larry
King asked the same thing. In truth, neither the three
others nor I can be described as sour. We are all quite
amiable, thank you very much. We are called Pez "Sourz"
because of the new type of Pez candy that debuts alongside
us, named after each of us.
Well, that is very refreshing to hear. I must say that
I have tried these new flavors, and I find them quite
enticing. The old flavors are great, but the Sourz flavors
are something else. What are your thoughts on being involved
in this latest evolution of Pez?
Beyond the weird glasses and the protruding
tongue, Pineapple Sourz Pez isn't that sour at all.
I've got to tell you, it is truly an exciting
time to be a Pez dispenser. The old rule of the orange-lemon-strawberry-grape
hierarchy has given way to a whole new rainbow of fruit flavors,
to borrow a phrase. Even avid peppermint Pez candy fans are
standing up and taking notice. The world can now see a blue-colored
Pez candy as a wonderful treat and not an unfortunate discoloration
of an orange- or purple-colored candy. Nothing is as it was
in the world of Pez, and I am truly honored to be one of the
Some may call him a dreamer, but Pineapple Sourz Pez envisions
a world where all Pez flavors can peacefully coexist.
Your spirit is quite evident, Pineapple Sourz Pez, but
I must say that you don't seem to acknowledge the worth
of previous flavors. Have you taken any flack from other
Pez dispensers for the gleefully unconventional views
you are espousing here?
Certainly not. To my knowledge I have made
no enemies in the Pez dispenser community, except for
Yosemite Sam Pez. However, from what I hear he's a little
ornery towards most everybody. Instead, I believe that
there needs to be frequent interaction among the generations
of Pez candy. I would encourage all Pez collectors to
break down those walls and put some Sourz candy in your
traditional dispensers, and put some regular lemon or
strawberry candy in your Sourz dispensers. A little bit
of something for everyone, as it were.
I can see that you are a proud advocate of Pez candy diversity,
but how about dispenser diversity? The four new Sourz dispensers
offer up unique details and contours that other dispensers do
not have. While it may be easy for you to admire these features,
do you look down on your dispenser ancestors?
Again, I would have to say no. After all, if
it weren't for the original Pineapple dispenser back in the
early days, I probably wouldn't be here. Also, if not for the
decision to stick out the tongue, as in the cases of Odie Pez,
Charlie Brown Pez, Elephant Pez, and of course Michael Jordan,
I might never have been inspired to do so myself. We're all
connected somehow, you know?
You make a valid point, Pineapple Sourz Pez. Finally, what is
your favorite flavor of Sourz Pez? Mine would have to be a tossup
between sour green apple, sour watermelon, and sour blue raspberry.
You are a cruel, cruel man.
