Haas was born at Leonding near Linz in Austria-Hungary into a rich family, his grandfather being a doctor and his father Eduard Haas II owning a flourishing grocery store. As an adolescent, he patented a light baking powder mixture for Gugelhupf cakes, developed after a recipe left by his grandfather. The small "Hasin" powder bags soon were sold all over the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.

Curtis Allina (August 15, 1922 – December 15, 2009) is credited with the addition of heads on the dispensers for PEZ candy, a design feature implemented while he was an executive at Pez-Haas, then the name of the company that now makes Pez candy.

Allina was born in Prague, in what was then the Czechoslovak Republic, and raised in Vienna, in what was then the First Austrian Republic. As a child, he lived across the street from Sigmund Freud and he and his friends would peer through the window watching the renowned doctor smoke a cigar while listening to his patients. Ironically, Allina never believed in psychoanalysis.
