Really fascinating to hear Gary’s story, and also to learn about the history of Pez. Highly recommend visiting this shop / museum. Gary has curated a great set of exhibits and is extremely knowledgeable about Pez. Plus there is the world’s largest giant Pez dispenser!

This has been on my “must see and do list” for a very long time and I finally made the visit. On line the business looks HUGE, when in reality, it’s 1 room and a gift store. For $3.00 ($2.00 65 and over) you can...More
