Gourmet on the Go: Vending Machine Dispenses Caviar and Escargot
December 8th, 2012
There has definitely been no shortage of vending machines as of late, especially of the strange variety. There was the vending machine that dished out dishes, the one that served up random reads, and the one that let you bypass unpleasant postal workers.
Now check out this vending machine that serves you gourmet food, a la carte!
These vending machines were installed by gourmet food supplier Beverly Hills Caviar in various malls in Los Angeles. Now shoppers who suddenly feel like getting a serving of caviar or escargot can just walk over to the machine and dine away.
When fully stocked, the vending machines carry about $50,000 worth of food products. You can expect to find over 24 varieties of caviar plus exotic food ingredients and dishes like black truffles, white truffle oil, blinis, and bottarga.
It wouldn’t seem appropriate to chow down on caviar using plastic spoons and forks from the food court, so the machine is also stocked with spoons and dishes crafted from mother of pearl.
