The Crayola Factory

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #153: Fat Fat Fatty Dana mentions that Crayola crayons are made in his hometown of Easton PA.

It's true!

The Crayola factory (aka The Crayola Experience... it's not just a factory, it's an EXPERIENCE) is located at 30 Centre Square, Easton, PA.

You will know you have arrived because a giant box of crayons is spilling from the top of the building:

In side you will find a giant coffee cup filled with CRAYONS.

Kid's sit under it and color as their parents sip the house blend of crayon flavored coffee.

On display are the ACTUAL Crayons that Dennis Rodman used to color his hair (circa 1997):

I wanted to find a video of this factory and I found a doozy. Originally aired on Sesame Street, it shows how the crayons are made.

First Ed pours in the crayon pulp:

Then Mabel chips out crayon points using only her finger nails:
 Then the crayons are passed through a giant metal colon and out the "cray-nus":
