Over the last two years, PAMP/MTB have had some extraordinary success with its homage to the world famous PEZ candy. A tiny 5g silver pill the same size as an actual PEZ candy, meant the silver could fit in, and be spat out by, the myriad selection of original dispensers. Now, they’ve moved on to another classic.
Sweethearts are another hard candy with a long history, one still being written today. Far older than PEZ, these little heart-shaped candy treats rely on a small message stamped into each one, rather than the quirky dispensers that attract fans to PEZ. As a result, PAMP’s silver issue is more traditionally presented.
Three of the hearts are included with this release, each with a different message on it. Rather than the six 5 gram pieces in the PEZ set, Sweethearts contains three 10 gram pieces for the same overall weight, all now upgraded to 0.9999 fineness. The retail price is similar as well, at a launch price of just under $100 USD.
Another unusual product, with neat presentation, we can imagine these looking especially desirable to the PEZ crowd. Whether these have the potential for variety that distinguishes the PEZ range is open to question and we’ll reserve judgement until PAMP release, if planned, a second issue, but we love the quirky stuff, and this certainly fits the bill.
