Earlier this month Pez Candy Inc., famous for their cartoonish candy dispensers, announced via their website the release of a limited edition Kiss gift set. Pez dispensers are well known for their collectability, so when the news reached Planet 13’s Kiss fans, it caused a flurry of queries for the online music merchandise retailer. “We carry tons of collectibles, but not perishable goods like food or candy,” states Shawn Scott, musician and owner of Planet 13, “but I have a soft spot for Kiss fans, because I’m one too. I can’t give them Pez, but what I can do is launch a limited Kiss merchandise discount for my fellow fans”

I can’t give them Pez, but what I can do is launch a limited Kiss merchandise discount for my fellow fans

On October 4th 2012, the famous company Pez Candy Inc., known for putting celebrity and cartoon heads atop their dispensers, announced via their website the impending release of their limited edition Kiss Pez Gift Set. When the news was announced, Kiss fans rushed to the Planet 13 website, an online music merchandise retailer, creating a high number of enquiries for the product. Planet 13 doesn’t carry perishable goods like Pez candy, but owner Shawn is reacting to the demand by launching a special, limited Kiss merchandise discount for his customers.

Pez Candy, Inc.’s highly anticipated Pez Kiss Gift Sets will soon be available to retailers across America. The gift set includes four dispensers, one for each of the members of Kiss, as well as a pack of the fizzy candy. The 4-dispenser set is provided in a reusable gift tin.

Joe Vittoria, the CEO of Pez Candy, Inc., commented on the official Pez website, “Interest in the Kiss gift tin has exceeded our expectations and we doubled our original production. There have been several imitation Kiss Pez dispensers in the market over the years and we are pleased to launch this authentic set in time for the holiday season.”

Combining Kiss fanaticism with Pez collectability is a “win-win situation” says Shawn Scott, musician and owner of Planet 13, an online music merchandise retailer, “Kiss fans love to collect and Pez fans love to collect. So, it was about time Pez put two and two together to release an official set.”

Planet 13, known for carrying an extensive range of collectible music memorabilia, including Kiss merchandise, was hit with a flurry of email queries after the Pez announcement. Their Kiss fan customers were eager to find out if the popular band merch site would be carrying the gift tins once released.

“We carry a huge range of Kiss items, but not perishable goods like food or candy,” remarks Shawn, “But I have a soft spot for Kiss fans, because I’m one too. I can’t give them Pez, but what I can do is launch a limited Kiss merchandise discount for my fellow fans.”

Planet 13 is responding to the Kiss Pez enquiries one by one, but Shawn continues “It’ll take some time to reply to everyone, so I’m letting it be known this special discount will be released on Halloween, October 31st. It’ll be accessible on the Planet 13 specials page.”

The limited discount will give fans a sweeping 20% off all Kiss merchandise available on Planet 13’s site. The discount will be released on this page: http://www.planet13.com.au/whatsnew.php at 9am (AEDST) on Wed, 31st October 2012 and will be available for 7 days only.
