The Mashed Potatoes & Gravy Vending Machine

David Edwards, reporting for The Raw Story:

The 7-Eleven convenience store chain is now featuring a Slurpee-type machine that dispenses mashed potatoes and gravy.

The Huffington Post on Monday confirmed that the Maggi mashed potato vending machines were beginning to show up in stores in the U.S.

For a dollar, you can get a generous helping of mashed potatoes. And then you can wash it down with a Big Gulp for only a dollar more.

The process is simple: Place the cup under the nozzle, press the “Mashed Potatoes” button and wait for your potatoes to be dispensed. Next, press the optional “Chicken Gravy” and wait two seconds for your gravy.

I have but two thoughts on this:

  1. It’s the end of human civilization as we know it; and
  2. If America’s supposed to be fighting obesity, this ain’t helping.

And for even more ridiculousness, check this out.
