An integral part of the American scene! PEZ Candy has been enjoyed by generations of Americans.

PEZ was first marketed as a compressed peppermint candy over 89 years ago in Vienna, Austria. The name PEZ was derived from the German word for peppermint... PfeffErminZ. Today, over 3 billion PEZ Candies are consumed annually in the U.S.A. alone.

With great tasting flavors and collectable dispensers, PEZ is more than just a candy... it's the pioneer of "interactive candy" that is both enjoyable to eat and fun to play with. PEZ Dispensers are a hot collectable for adults and children alike as well as being a staple and part of American pop culture. New character dispensers are introduced regularly to reflect current trends.

PEZ Candy is manufactured in Orange, Connecticut by PEZ CANDY, INC. and marketed through supermarkets, mass merchandisers, variety stores, drug stores, convenience stores, toy chains and gift stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. Available around the world in more than 80 countries, PEZ Candy and Dispensers truly have universal appeal.

  • The best! Highly recommended! If you are a PEZ collector or just a PEZ fan you will definitely enjoy the small museum the Visitor Center houses. Lots of PEZ merchandise and dispensers for sale; some of them exclusive to the center, and some very cool photo ops. I will certainly visit again.
  • Well priced for what it is. A good detour giving around an hour or so of entertainment while you stretch your legs. Each ticket gives you a $2 gift certificate towards purchases and most of the dispensers are $1.99. family and I had a great time, great walk down memory lane and learn some cool trivia. Would recommend
  • Cool little quick trip for in state folks who have never been. Most local libraries carry free passes to get it, but if you pay then some of your admission gets turned to store creditor can use to purchase dispensers and other memorabilia from the "museum" which is essentially a large pez store. Plain dispensers are almost all only 2 bucks so you make out for the money.
  • This is not a big place, but it brings back so many memories. It's great you can see in to the packaging. A great place to bring kids, but it's very small. If you have enough kids, the class upstairs is great for kids!
  • What a fun time! Grab your bingo card and start finding the PEZ dispensers. If you're like us, you'll work to find them ALL even after you get a bingo. If you go on business days, you may get to see the manufacturing process at work, but even on weekends, it's still fun. You can still see the machines and imagine the process involved. Fun to fill a bucket of your favorite current PEZ flavors, too, and don't forget to pose as a PEZ dispenser head!
