Nerf Blasters are great fun to play with, but you really shouldn’t eat the foam darts. Conversely, Pez dispensers are fussy and kind of boring, but the candy is a tasty treat. [Soloprototype] has presented us the best of both worlds, in the form of a 3D-printed Pez blaster, with a firm note that this toy is for grown-ups only.
Overall, the design is very similar to the Pez Shooter, a long-discontinued Pez dispenser design. It uses a basic pistol form factor, and accepts a magazine of Pez pellets loaded into the grip. The magazine itself is cut out of a regular Pez dispenser, to avoid reinventing the wheel. Pulling the trigger fires the Pez pellets with spring power, launching candy into the air.
We all love candy propelled at speed, though [Soloprototype] notes that some safety precautions should be observed. To avoid choking risks, it’s not recommended to allow children to play with the toy. Nor should it be fired at the face or mouth. The full list of safety measures is available on the project’s Cults3D page.
The Pez blaster is cool, but we’d love to see more work in this space. The world needs a Twinkie Trebuchet, or a Cadbury Catapult, to say nothing of the Butterfingers Balista. If you can think of other Age of Empires siege weapons that would be ideal for candy delivery, drop them in the comments below. Alternatively, consider the M&M launcher we’ve shared previously!

how about the Rolo Wololo
i identify as an assault Pez dispenser
Toblerone reminds me of nails for a nail gun
…and don’t forget the ice cream ICBM .
These all sound like doomsday devices exhibited at the Mad Scientists Fair in an episode of The Tick. SPOOOON!
This is very practical for bringing on a plane, in case your travel buddy sits a bit further from you and you want to share your Pez with them. Try it!
Now I know why I felt so empty in my childhood… I never had a PEZ Blaster.
But hey. Since I have a genetically induced defect and cannot grow up…
I can repair my broken childhood now with an off-the-shelve 3D-Printer.
Don’t tell Biden or the ATF.
Don’t let the ATF see that. Might think it’s one of those ghost guns.
How about a Stay-Puft marshmallow blaster. Think they would get it?
I can think of very few places in the United States where whipping one of these out of your pocket and randomly waving it about would be any sort of a good idea, least of all in a school setting.
Your country may vary.
A better idea would’ve been to make it in the shape of something other than a handgun.
Almost anywhere outside of the cities my dude
In Canada, Rockets are a candy similar in composition to Pez, but they’re round and come in a roll about 2″ long; in the US they’re called Smarties. I’ve always wanted a Rockets launcher.
Sometimes it’s not good to share things with police officers.
In some states the tip of the barrel will need to be flourescent orange !
