“A Cheerful Place to Visit”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

For anyone who has ever had a Pez candy dispenser this is a a must see attraction. The history of the development of the candy, and its fun containers is shown through films, display cases, pictures and some antique dispensing machines as well. The graphic design of the facility is beautiful. While any age can enjoy it, it is more interesting for adults because children would probably not be as interested in the characters of the past decades portrayed on the dispensers as of us who grew up with them.
My visit was with my grown daughter and we both were happy to have visited it.

“Enormous rip off”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Don't visit on a weekend: they take your money but after you enter you realize that the factory isn't operating, but they charged you anyway. Unreal: it's basically a glorified gift shop with ten seconds worth of cool things to look at.

“Great road trip diversion”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

While I would never plan a trip around this destination, it was an adorable place to stretch our legs during the long drive from Boston to PA. I agree with the reviewer that stated this is basically a gift shop- you pay a few dollars to get in, but they do give you a credit to use in the store. There is a small factory area to view the candy being made, however it is only in use during weekdays. Lots of old dispensers and toys to see in the store, as well as items to purchase. We bought some refills to bring home for our kids (I didn't even know they made cola and chocolate Pez!), and took some pictures of the brightly colored store. It was a fun unexpected stop, took only about 20 minutes of our time.

“Not worth your time”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We went a couple weeks ago with cub scouts, we paid the group rate for what actually is a gift shop. The are cases of old pez dispensers, but kids aren't interested in them. Nothing to do there for them except to have their parents spend money.

“A true Orange Original!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We brought the kids here for a little treat! It is about a 1hour trip at most. They have a gift shop and you can buy the candy right there! The PEZ is so fresh it tastes even better! A must see!
