Luxury Vending Machine Dispenses Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams
July 8th, 2013
We’ve featured some unusual vending machines over the years – dispensing everything from pizzas to cupcakes to crabs to gold. Here’s another vending machine that forgoes the usual cans of soda and candy bars for something decidedly more upscale.
Berlin delicatessen Floris Feinkost has loaded their vending machine with shmancy items such as champagne, wine and gourmet snacks. The machine is freshly stocked every day, and accepts debit cards, of course. But the machine is more than just a marketing gimmick. It allows customers to buy gifts and foodstuffs from the deli 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Prices for items in the machine range from about €2 to €20 (~ $3 to $26 USD), so it’s actually not that insanely expensive for the type of high-end goods they’re selling. Heck, it’s certainly better than the minibar in your hotel room.
