Garbage Can-dy


Garbage Can-dy were Pez-like candy pellets in a tiny plastic garbage can. The candies were in the shape of items you might find in a garbage can.

The “garbage” included a dead fish, an old shoe, a dog bone and a discarded soda bottle. Fortunately, this novelty treat tasted much better than the trash. After you took out the trash, the can can could be used for storing stuff like stickers, marbles and erasers.

Garbage Can-dy and Garbage Pail Kids were created by Art Spiegelman, who worked in the product development department of The Topps Company.
