The Absolute Most New Jersey Thing You’ll See At A Rest Stop
I had to drive to the Newark Airport over the weekend, and that was an adventure in and of itself.
Between my GPS sending me down multiple wrong roads and then sitting in thirty minutes of traffic trying to get to the terminal my wife was flying out of it was an experience.
That being said, I did see the most 'New Jersey' thing ever at a rest stop that made the frustration of the trip totally worth it.
Coming down the parkway I realized I needed to get some gas, and saw a sign for the Jon Bon Jovi service center.
Now, the Bon Jovi service center is very 'Jersey' in and of itself but that's not what really made this stop memorable.
Walking into the building in the back I saw what looked like a large brick wall with someone dressed like a chef.
My curiosity peaked.
I walked back toward the wall only to realize that it wasn't just a guy dressed like a chef, it was Buddy Valastro, the Cake Boss!
Inside the Bon Jovi Service center, you can visit the Cake Boss vending machine, and get a slice of cake.
For ten dollars, you can get two slices of the famous cake which is delivered fresh daily.
According to Vending Times, there are actually a few of these machines scattered throughout the state.
There's one in the Jon Bon Jovi service center and another in the Thomas Edison rest stop in Woodbridge.
Where do you think is a good place for a Cake Boss vending machine?
I'd like to see one along one of the boardwalks!
