Fans gather for annual PEZ conference

GREEN BAY, WI (CNN) - Fans from around the country gathered this weekend in Wisconsin, for the 8th Annual Green Bay PEZ Gathering.

To some people, it's just a unique little candy, but for others, PEZ has become something of an obsession.

PEZ dispensers from the last 50 years were on display, as conventioneers compared, swapped and purchased new additions for their collections.

"I enjoy it just for the colorfulness of the dispensers, the wide gamut of just how many of them there are out there," said Bryan Lewis the host of the Green Bay PEZ event.

More than 30 rare PEZ dispensers were being auctioned off to benefit Special Olympics of Northeast Wisconsin.

Last year's auction raised more than $15,000.
