A limited-edition Colonel Sanders Pop! PEZ dispenser is set to hit the market thanks to a new partnership between Kentucky Fried Chicken and Funko.

The Colonel Sanders Pop! PEZ dispenser will be available in time for Halloween. Each collectible retails for $5.99 on Amazon.com and is available for a limited time at select retailers nationwide, including Barnes & Noble and PEZ.com.

"PEZ dispensers are as iconic as the Colonel and his signature white suit," says Andrea Zahumensky, U.S. chief marketing officer, KFC. "Now, even the Colonel will be giving out candy this Halloween."

Earlier this year, KFC and Funko released a limited-edition Colonel Sanders Pop! Funko figurine, which sold out in the Funko Shop in 11 minutes.

"It's not a savory bucket of fried chicken, yet the new Colonel Sanders Pop! PEZ is a sweet addition to our line of ad icons, and we're thrilled to have him join the Pop! PEZ family," says Molly Hartney, chief marketing officer, Funko.
