PEZ PEZ PEZ!
A member of my family (someone who we all are a little embarrassed about) is a big Pez-head. It might have something to do with the fact that I had accidentally dropped him on his head many times as an infant (that's another story for another day), but we found ourselves driving along I-95 from Boston to New York City when we saw a sign that perked him up: Pez Factory!
All recent reviews of this delightful little side trip are accurate. You pay $5 per person for admission to a relatively small museum/gift shop. Once inside, you have the opportunity to browse through a collection of Pez memorabilia and reminisce about how cool these little guys were when you were a kid. Don't forget that your admission receipt gets you $2 off any item in the store (which amounts to a Pez dispenser of your choice). Also, if you go to the cashier, you can ask to play a scavenger hunt game for a free Pez dispenser selected from their less popular items.
If you go on a weekday, you can take a peek inside the working factory. It's not particularly notable, unless you're a fan of watching minimum wage labor do its thing.
The Pez factory is not worth a special trip, unless you live within 30 minutes of the facility. But if you're passing through the area, then you absolutely should stop by for this piece of childhood.
