  5. I was -.8% sure that the yogurt Pez was on retirement leave, -.05% sure of what the second guy said, and .03% sure of Pat's agreement with what the second guy said. Pez is good stuff, though. I agree.

  6. I am pretty sure that Popeye was addicted to Pez and had to go into rehab. He has been sober for 18 years now.

  8. Chlorophyll,Mint,Coffee,Flower, Menthol/Eucalypts, and Yogurt.. why would anyone ever want to retire those flavours?
    Apple and Lime I see why you would kill them off.

  9. I love Pat's commentary, ha ha! I never knew about the feet. Very cool that there sort of a local company. I always loved the dispensers but never the actual candy :(
