VENDING MACHINES 2

#16   Rice Vending Machine In Japan

#17   Baguettes, France
Paris has no shortage of boulangeries churning out freshly baked loaves of bread, but that didn’t stop one entrepreneur from creating a baguette vending machine. The invention hasn’t quite taken off, though, proving that there’s still something to be said for the baker’s touch.

#18   French Fries, worldwide
If vending machine cuisine is any indication, french fries are universally beloved. From Montreal to Australia, you can find french fries in vending machines around the world.

#19   Caviar, Moscow, Los Angeles
If that bag of chips just isn’t up to your culinary standards, you can find caviar in vending machines in both Los Angeles and Moscow. You might, however, need a little more than pocket change to fulfill this craving.

VENDING MACHINES 3

#20   Fresh Cupcakes, Los Angeles
The cupcake craze isn’t disappearing anytime soon, at least not if the Los Angeles bakery Sprinkles has anything to do with it. The Beverly Hills bakery’s “cupcake ATM” provides freshly baked cupcakes around the clock for sugar addicts.

#21   Pizza, United States
We have frozen pizza and pizza delivery, but now we can get pizza from a vending machine, too. Thanks to an Italian entrepreneur, hungry people on the go can now get a piping-hot pizza in less than three minutes.

#22   Pecan Pie, Texas
Berdoll Pecan Farm in Cedar Creek, Texas, bakes fresh pecan pies daily, but their pies are so good that they’ve taken some forward-thinking steps to keep up with demand. To meet the 24/7 cravings of their customers, the company has a pecan pie vending machine on the porch of the shop that operates around the clock.

#23   Mashed Potatoes, Singapore
The mashed potato vending machines installed in 7-Elevens in Singapore give a new meaning to “instant mashed potatoes.” With the push of a button, the machine dispenses a hot cup of mash (the gravy is optional).

#24   The Rugbeer Machine, Argentina
Vending machines are supposed to be convenient, right? Not so in Argentina, where rugby fans must first tackle the machine for it to dispense a beer. The Rugbeer machine was installed in the Salta province of Argentina, where both rugby and beer are beloved.

#25   Raw Meat, Alabama
Not everyone has access to a neighborhood butcher. Luckily for some Alabama residents, the “Smart Butcher” vending machine sells raw steaks and chops for an affordable price. Hopefully it’s replenished frequently!

VENDING MACHINES 5

#26   Live Lobsters, United States
Sometimes food just tastes better when you catch it yourself — at least that’s the premise of live lobster vending machines that allowed users to catch their dinner before eating it. The game took off in Florida but ironically didn’t meet the same success in New England.

#27   Live Crabs, China
A lucky few in China can get their crab on the go. Shanghai hairy crab, a Chinese delicacy, is dispensed live from vending machines in Nanjing, China. Those poor crabs!

#28   Growing Lettuce, Japan
Taking the idea of urban agriculture to a new level, vending machines in Japan use light bulbs and “nutri-culture” beds to actually grow lettuce inside the machines. A crazy idea, or a local food revolution? Either way, it’s our pick for the oddest vending machine in the world.
